More paper piecing

The simplicity of a 3x3 card.
The speed of stamped design paper, cut out.
The joy of using up design paper scraps!!
The fun of doodles.
Simple. Quick. Fun.

Winter Trees

Another Kim Hughes set Winter Trees.
My son actually sat with me (age 10) and stamped along side of me, giving me insight and ideas. His snowman had a hand drawn/colored pink cameo scarf (too cute!!). This was for a challenge over on SCS, but I didn't write down for which one. HA. It was a sketch challenge I believe. :)
At any rate, it was a bit of inspiration that I needed to get going.
Have you ever checked out all the sketches that are available over on SCS?
Check them out HERE.
I can't say this is my favorite card. I flubbed up while inking the grey layer and so had to use buttons to hide the error. I didn't want to try to sew through all those layers (half laziness, half fingertip survival) and so I used linen thread through them before hand (a little illusion there for you ladies!) and then used glue dots. BUT... the knot at the back of the button was too bulky... and so it goes. Not good. BUT, the snowman IS cute.... and it reminded me how much I love the look of paper piecing. :)
Not to mention that I was stamping with my buddy... so it was all good! :)

Forgotten Thanks.

I forgot to thank all you ladies that took the time to vote for Tania for the Scrapbox over on Splitcoaststampers. What an exciting week that was to watch the votes roll in. No. She didn't win. CLOSE though... the dream for that scrapbox continues....
Admittedly, this is still one of my all time favorite stamps from Stampin' Up! A retired hostess set. I think it was way back when SU gave a special stamp to workshops over a certain amount. At any rate, although it's been "de-blocked" and tucked into a CD "container" (do you call them containers?? Hmmm?) I still pull it out again and again!!
I am missing my cuttlebug and trying to create texture through design paper and layers. Although my last post I was using those mini 3x3 cards & they were simple and I was OK with that. Move up to the typical card size and I have to fill that baby up! LOL.
I used SU Markers on the stamps to get the multicolored images. Oh, and my favorite ribbon of all-time (thus far) is SU's taffeta ribbon. YUM-MY!
What are you doing this weekend?

What's better than that?! :) I made a number of these little cards to have on hand. Seems like far too many people are sick these days... great little card to give with a box of tissue to someone with the sniffles, or a pot of homemade soup to someone with the flu.....
Been trying to stamp some cards for my bin, it's been depleting lately with very few additions! Hopefully I'll get some stamping time in over the weekend....
what are you working on?
This set is made with Kim Hughes 'Comforting Hugs'.
