My Guest Designer-Week 1: Dancing Cheek to Cheek

I was so thrilled last week when Jessie sent me this peek of one of her first cards with the "Cuddles and Hugs" set using the Just So Hoppy puddle! (I had JUST completed this flamingo card myself with the puddle, but I had omitted the water drops and stamped it around their knees to look like they were standing still!) I thought it was MUCH more fun the way she used the whole puddle image at the bottom, when you stamp it this way the way they're picking up their little feet it looks like they're splashing around(very hoppily!) in a sweet, slow dance, the lady with her eyes closed, a leanin' on her man... :)

I LOVE they she put the Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink together, using both of these (his and hers!) colors in her CS, DP, gingham AND taffeta ribbon, it's so yummy! (DP is from the SU! hostess prints pack). The spiral clip and big white brads (I just gotta pick me up some of these brads, they add so much dimension and always look so terrific next to a white punched greeting like she did here) are kind of her "signature" embellishments, she uses these a LOT to great effect. Put all these things together and your eyes just dance around the card again and again, taking it all in, way to go, Jessie! Now go check out her blog for another peek from her using this set! Check back next Thursday for another "Cuddles and Hugs" project from Jessie!

Have a great day! Dance when no one's watching! :)
