Live – Laugh – Love

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2020?! Crazy how fast the years are flying by! Our January challenge is live over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #33 – Anything Goes + Paper Piecing! I absolutely love this technique – and my card is CAS – AND it’s a one-layer card which I’ve probably only created a handful of in all the years I’ve been crafting!


I used the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You stamp set which is one of my favorites. The image is small but the paper piecing technique is very effective with it, I think. I chose a pretty floral paper for her dress and a coordinating solid for her hat from the Colorbok Delilah 12 x 12 designer paper pad.


The front and inside sentiments are also from the same Beautiful You stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


And one more look… really loving how this turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up thick Very Vanilla cardstock, Colorbok Delilah 12 x 12 designer paper pad
Stamps: Stampin’ Up Beautiful You stamp set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink (pad and marker)
Accessories:  MISTI stamp tool, Light Cerulean Blue Prismacolor Pencil, ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will link up an anything goes project with us this month, and better yet, why not play the ‘paper piecing’ twist?! It’s super fun and yields such a neat result! Remember, though, that the twist is not necessary to play in our challenges! Thanks so much for stopping by – we’ll see you again soon! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I love reading them!
