Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by Little Darling Rubber Stamps

I am so excited for this week's challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown!  I get to not only present one of my stamps that I've had and was so excited to work with and to try a new technique!  Our sponsor this week is Little Darling Rubber Stamps, which I totally love, especially their Cutie Pies line, and we were challenged to use Fancy Folds.  Little Darlings Rubber Stamps has some of the cutest rubber stamp lines that include Little Darlings, Cutie Pies, Saturated Canary, Liseth by MilkCoffee, sentiments, and some gorgeous papers.  I had an absolute blast coloring my image up and can't wait to show her off!

This little cutie pie is called Holiday Happenings: Darling Girl and I made a diamond origami fold card for her.     Isn't is gorgeous?  It was so easy and you can find the instructions here.  This is a picture of the front of the card.

I added some homemade flowers to the front with some Scrapper's Floss and branches from my Martha Stewart punch.  This gorgeous paper is from K&Company and it didn't break when I pressed the folds sharp.

This is a closeup of this baby.  Isn't she just adorable?  She's colored with copics and I added some Stickles on her headband, stockings, and the bands on her sweater.  I added a little bit of Diamond Glaze to her eyes and think they make them look so big and sweet!  Nestabilities were used to cute out her an the frame and I brushed some distressed inks along the edge of the image to soften the lines.  The pearls are from Recollections.

Thought I'd show you the two front diamonds up close.

This paper is so soft and restful and springy and summery that I just had to use it!  Have you ever just felt compelled to make something special with a sheet of paper?  I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has ever thought that!

I plan on entering her in the following challenges:
