A very simple card using a strip of Stampin Up DP and aTim Holtz dressform die.  The circular stamp is Stampin Up, inked in Summer Starfruit and I just finished it off with a wee bit of seam binding and some flowers punched from SU glitter card.

Paper Piecing

Hi all,

Firstly let me apologise for being a rather absent blogger the last couple of weeks, I've been up to my eyes making stock for the four Christmas fairs I'm doing this year.  I've actually been asked to do another two but I'm turning them down, otherwise I'll be a stressed out wreck by the time Christmas comes!  However, I had one fair this week and did really well, so only 3 more to go!

I've a wee card for you today, made for the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.  Viv has chosen the theme of PAPER PIECING.

The stamp was a magazine freebie.  I paper pieced her dress and pumps and coloured the rest of her with Promarkers.  I then added some glossy accents to her posy of flowers and some Stickles to the frill of her dress.  The frames were cut using Stampin Up framelits and I also cut the No 4 and butterflies using SU dies too.

Our sponsors for this challenge are

Saturated Canary 
with two of their fabulous digis

and Woodware
with a prize of £12.00 to spend at your favourite Woodware Stockist
(onine or in-store)

Hope you can find the time  to join us in spot of paper piecing.

Thanks  for popping in today.

Take good care

Oh and I nearly forgot ...... thanks Valerie!!! mwah x
