Life was a bit stinky this week. It was bone chillingly cold here in Pennsylvania. I know I shouldn't complain so many others had it so much worse. But it was bad for us. I also had to get back to reality and start studying again after a 5 week hiatus. I am putting in a grueling school schedule in the next 4 months so I can have my BSN by then end of April instead of the middle of June.
Wish me luck to try and get everything done! Oh yeah, keep me in your thoughts to pass my Psychology CLEP test!! Any study tips would be greatly appreciated!
This week at Just Us Girls, Sharyn is hosting a technique challenge. Yippee!!! It was one I love paper piecing. It might be an older technique but it never gets old with this gal. The question was which stamp to use!!
I grabbed this set from Simon say Stamp that really hadn't seen any ink since I bought it. I paper pieced with pink gingham paper from Memory Box. I found a scrap of white felt paper and paper pieced the tummy and tale with that. Remember those "Pat the Bunny" books you all read your kids? Think that. Ooooooo, nice and soft!
The best part of this card is the inside though.
I had to pull out a shadow stamp to create the reverse image. It has been a very long time since I did that little trick and I had a few for the trash. The saying I had wrote. I can't wait to give this to Mr. George for Valentine's day!
Another little trick I like to use to mimic paper piecing can be seen on the heart. I die cut an image and carefully outline it with a black marker so it looks like it was stamped and cut out.
I can't wait to see what all of you create this week at Just Us Girls!
