Simple Paper Piecing

Happy Happy New Year!!! Did you have a wild party to ring in the New Year? How about a quiet one? I attended a party for one lol! No, I take that back - it was actually two (my puppy dog and I!). I am past the wild party stage and have enjoyed a few quiet gatherings in past years, but this year just felt good to be home. There's no place like home, there's no place like home : )

As I reflected on the past year, looking at all the cards and projects I've made, first of all I'm amazed at the quantity (for me) I produced. I also found a few that I haven't posted yet... Here's to a New Year of even more creations, and of course, better quality projects! I've enjoyed visiting many of you and have learned so much. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your talent with me!!!

So this is a little card I made for a young lady's baby shower. The image is Bundle of Love by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Sampler. It's my first paper piecing yahooooooo! Don't look too close lol! Isn't she cute and cuddly?

This is a quick and easy 3 x 3 card... The only tricky part was deciding how to cut away her face from the paper piecing! I will do it differently next time... The soft furry trim on her hat is Sparkly Fluff which I attached using my Quickie Glue Pen. Even though the area I wanted fuzzy isn't small and detailed, the Quickie Glue Pen was really quick and easy so I opted for that. The ball at the end of her hat and the cute little star on her pram (is that what you call it???) was made sparkly with Viva Decor Glitter Liner. This Glitter Liner can get in the most detailed areas - that's one of the things I really like about it! I popped on a tiny bow and she's ready to go : )

SCACD Reopens!
Have you tried to go shopping at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design lately? If you have, you know that the store has been closed for the holidays. But cheer up! TOMORROW (January 2, 2011) you will find some brand new items that you didn't even know that you needed ROFL!!! Susana has the best service and she's constantly bringing the most FUN crafty tools and yummy goodness ever! You'll definitely want to hop on over to the store to see what she's cooked up for us next : )

Thank you for being a very important part of my life over the past year. I look forward to a long and lasting relationship with each and every one of you ♥

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~

This is just so super cute! What I found the easiest with the face was to stamp the image 3 times, once for the base, once for the patterned paper and once for the face.
