Hugs & Kisses!


It's ABC Toys & Crafts Tuesday!  Yay!  I've had this card made for a couple of weeks now, and am so excited to share it with you today.  The new Sarah Kay images that ABC Toys & Crafts is carrying now are so stinkin' cute!  I had a blast making this card because it encompassed all of my favorite things about card making - fun shapes, really fun coloring, paper-piecing, and a sweet, sweet image.  Isn't that what cardmaking is all about?!!  It certainly is for me.

I stamped Best Friends Forever onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  I then stamped her again onto the plaid pattern paper as well as the green gingham paper.  I cut out the pinafores for the little girl and her dolly, as well as the dolly's hair bow.  Sweet, huh?  I also wanted to give the little girl some dimension, so I cut out her pocket and her arm and popped them up with 3-D Dots.  I cut out the white image panel using my Labels 8 Nestabilities and then embossed it with a Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Check out that yummolicious lace!  I picked that up at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago - isn't it delicious?!

STAMPS:  Best Friends Forever (Sarah Kay/Stampavie), Hugs & Kisses (Bild Milarna Stamps)
PAPER: White CS (Neenah), Certainly Celery (SU), Little Chick DP (3 Bugs In A Rug), Mini Gingham CS (A Muse)
INK: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
ACCESSORIES: Hibiscus Burst Saddle Stitch Ribbon (PTI), Lace (Hobby Lobby), ScorTape, Janome Sew Mini, 3-D Dots (EK Success), Labels Eight Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug, Copics, Xyron Sticker X
