{Paper Smooches} i ♥ u sew much


Happy Tuesday! Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. It features stamps from Needle Little Love and of course two dies from the CHA Winter release that will be available for purchase on February 1st. I flipped the thimble upside down to create a tiny flower pot for the bundle of paper pieced flowers. I used one of the stitched lines to create the stem. I stamped the sentiment, cut it up and arranged it on the Duo Die 2 frame and arranged flourishes from Flourishes 1 Dies around it. All patterned paper is from Crate Paper's Acorn Avenue paper pad.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day!!

Oh, you guys are teasing us with all these new goodies.... great card.

I like how you have just a few hints of stitching (the stem, the flower centres) to go with the sentiment, not going all in-your-face with the pun. This is beautiful!

Have I mentioned yet how much I appreciate your new Linky-manager list of supplies? Extra work, but a great feature of your blog.
Trust you to come up with an out-of-the-box use for a thimble! Very sweet card, and I can't wait to see the big reveal of PS dies...
