Paper Pieced Ombre Friends

**I have lots of new listings for stamp sets for sale on my "Stamps for Sale - Updated" tab above!  Or you can click here.  Take a look if you have time!  Thanks!**

I have some favorite products to share with you that I've used on my card today!

Jen Carter Ombre Lattice Flower

First, on my favorites list is this new Lattice Flower Square Panel Die that Frantic Stamper just released. It has so many possibilities and I have loved this pattern for quite some time! I used this same panel as a border on this card that I shared last week.  I wanted to make a soft quilt-like pattern on this card.  The prints in the Fancy Pants Summer Sun paper pad were perfect (and this is another product that is on my favorite list right now...which is subject to change tomorrow, but I love the texture this paper has!).  I just pieced the papers in where I wanted them (held together with tape on the back side) and then popped the entire piece up with dimensionals.

The "friends" sentiment is also from a Frantic Stamper die set called Good Friends Daisy Frame.  I die cut the sentiment three times and stacked them on top of each other for dimension.  That is one of my favorite techniques right now.  I love how it adds just the right amount of dimension without having to worry about the pop dots or tape showing underneath.

And that ombre paper.  Yeah, that is on my favorites list right now too!  That is a new release from Lil' Inker Designs and it is one of three ombre paper pads, this one called Ombre Stripes.  The entire collection can be viewed here.   It is the perfect subtle background for this piece.

The top of the card is tied with a piece of solid strawberry twine from The Twinery.  This card is based on a sketch from my Card Sketches Pinterest board.

I'm entering this card over at the Just us Girls #297 challenge which was to use stacked die cut sentiments.

And, I'm also entering this card over at the Paper Sweeties Challenge where I was inspired by the colors
 in the banners and also the different patterns in the photo.  

And, last but not least I am entering this over at the Addicted to Stamps Summer Colors challenge & Avenue 613 Anything Goes Challenge & Crafting When We Can Challenge to Paper Piece.
Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!
