Quick Creations Inspiration Post-CC Designs

Hello Everyone. It is Olivia here for an Inspirational Post for Quick Creations

Today I am showcasing the newest stamps release from CC Designs! Have you seen these cuties in the store yet. 

I was fortunate enough to use the stamp, Dear Diary, by artist Roberto Rascals.  I thought this card would look great as a gatefold card. If you are interested in making a gatefold card, I used the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.

 I colored the image with my Copics and then used my Spellbinder dies to cut out the image and the scallop dies around it. I used my wood veneers for a sentiment. The paper is from the Doodlebug Springtime Pad.

Hope you enjoyed this card and be sure to stop by and check out all the great products available. 

I will also be entering this card into a few challenges:

7 Kids College Fund-Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew-Stripes
Ladybug Crafts-Bright Colors
Party Time Tuesday-Anything Goes
