September Ninth Guest Designer Summer Easel Card

Helloooooooo friends! I am so excited to be a guest designer for Miss Ruthie aka my Peachy Sister today over on her blog! Ruthie asked me to design something with a summer theme and I got inspired jamming to the song Knee Deep by Zac Brown Band... "Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair".  Love it! Here is my summer easel card:
Recipe:
Stampin Up card stock
DCWV patterned papers
Life's a Beach + Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridges
The Twinery twine (and lots of it!)
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Market Street Stamps Chillaxin stamp set - sentiment 

My favorite is the itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini! ;) Here's a quick tutorial on how I made my twine pom pom. 
Start with a plastic fork and some twine. (easy enough)
Wrap twine around fork about 30 times, depending on how "poofy" you want your pom pom.
Cut off twine. Cut another piece of twine about 4 inches long and weave through the middle of the fork with the ends at the back. Knot twice.
Cut off loops on both sides. 
Smash down the center from the other way and poof until you get it to look like you want and voila!

I hope y'all enjoyed my summer easel card today. I would love it if you would head over to her blog HERE and leave some sweet comments! xoxo
