~ Nina.B.Designs ~ Paper Piecing
This fun card was created with stamps and dies designed by Nina Brackett...........(she is one talented and lovely woman).
The leafy stems were stamped with Happiness Is... and for dimension, I stamped a few extra stems, trimmed out the leaves, and adhered them with foam dots.
By the way, I know my stamping is not perfect. I can almost never achieve perfectly crisp images. Somehow they invariably end up with lighter patches or something wrong... =(
However, I am always inspired by artists who can do perfect stamping, and I will keep practicing and improving (and maybe invest in better inks). One day I will be a real stamper!
For now, I like to comfort myself with the idea that the imperfect stamping somehow lends a nice, soft effect to the final product ;)
PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU AGREE.
The lovely sentiment is also from the Happiness Is... stamp set.
And the cute, cute little hearts were die-cut from Nina Brackett's Home Sweet Home by Spellbinders™ ... these come with the tiny eyes punched out after die-cutting, so it was super easy to thread it on a length of thin twine.
The other bits on the card are patterned paper by K & Co as well as MME, a couple of cute blossoms by Prima, and some pretty trim.
Hope your weekend is a verrrah good one ;)
