Happy New Year! It's a brand new year of stamping and I resolve to sew more and USE my stamping supplies! I'm sure I'm not alone in stamping supply hoarding :)
This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC149) was a great layout and one I'm sure to use again. I needed a birthday card for a fellow Starbucks lover and Miss You a Latte was the perfect image!
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics.
I went a bit crazy on the sewing but practice makes perfect, right? The pattern paper is MME Darling Dear and the cardstock is SU Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Kraft. I used the Lacey Circles nestie and the swiss dots embossing folder on the Baja Breeze circle. I popped her up for a little dimension and used the Rolled Rose die to make a felt flower. I even decorated the inside of the card too - but forgot to take a photo.
So, on my first card for 2012 I have sewing - check, used new pattern paper - check, used my felt stash to make a flower - check and used my new Baja Breeze seam binding - check! No hoarding for this card - I'm off to a good start! :)
