Scrapping for Less Blog Hop featuring Carta Bella and Echo Park

Scrapping for Less is in love with Echo Park/Carta Bella!!
All of us here at Scrapping for Less absolutely love Echo Park Paper Co. They are a really diverse company and bring many, many patterns out each and every year. They have at least one release each month and could not be cuter! Cause who doesn’t love some absolutely cute pattern paper? 

This month’s focus is this fabulous paper company and the Design Team has outdone themselves with some great projects. You can read all about the interview Teresa had with Madison Parker (the owner of Echo Park/Carta Bella) just in case you missed it.

I love Echo Park's papers!! The 6x6 paper pads are so much fun to play with and what's better than some fun paper piecing! I think it was an absolute must for this cute card! I was inspired by the Perfect Princess paper pad to share a bit of magic! Being a bit of a bookworm myself, I imagined my daughter entranced in the magic of one of her fairy tale books... and this card came to life. 

I stamped the image from My Favorite Things BB Our Story on white card stock as my base. I colored the skin and hair using copic markers. I then stamped the image a few more times on the different pieces of patterned paper and fussy cut the different pieces. I adhered all the different pieces to my white base... it's like putting a puzzle together, so fun! 

I die cut a circle making a 'window' and then die cut a stitched scalloped circle to adhere on top. The 'magic' sentiment is a die cut cardstock piece from the coordinating frames & tags ephemera pack. I sponged a little bit of distress ink around the edges to help pop the sentiment. 

I also added some clear Wink of Stella around the stitched scalloped circle and the sentiment. You can see the glittery goodness a bit better in this picture.

Now here's the hoppers lineup...
