My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge...Back 2 School Blues?!

Good Morning friends! I hope you had a great weekend and I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous Krafty Hop yesterday with the KKS Pin-Up Girls and Miles & friends!

So, Today I have a card to share with you that I made on the weekend for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge...Back 2 School the challenge this week! But first I need to say what a fabulously exciting MFT week last week was for me! First, I was one of the "Favorite Finds" with my Expecting Love Baby Bump set card that I made for the BG Challenge and then I won a $15.00 MFT voucher for last week's MFT WSC...sketch challenge with this card...whoo hoo!!! Talk about a great week!!!

So, for my card I used this Making Memories 6x6 paper pad called Chloe's Closet and I used this cutie PI Girl called Book in hand. I paper pieced her skirt and I stamped 2 images on Nennah card and coloured her sweater hand and book on the one and then cut that out and pieced it as well. If I just pieced her skirt and coloured the rest of the image then it would've looked like her sweater was under her skirt. This just keeps all the dimensions right. I picked up this little tip from Michele Boyer...she is so talented and the bestest paper piecer ever!!! I cut the image out with my Nesties and inked with Old Paper Distress ink. Also, if you are paper piecing and plan on cutting your image out with a Nestie die, do that first and then glue the pieces on so that it doesn't get smooshed in your die cutting machine....I picked this up by trial and error, lol.


I love the look of stitching on cards but I haven't ventured into the sewing thing yet....but my Kelly Panacci Stitching stamps always give me great results and look pretty realistic too. I stamped them with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I used my new Notebook Edge Di-namics die and I use some of this scrumptious stripped twill ribbon that came in my VIP set too. I used these cute felt flowers that I had in my stash and a felt button and decided to put BG brads in the holes just for a change. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and Making Memories glitter letter stickers.

Here is the inside...pretty simple the sentiment is from the My Umbrella PI set.


Well, Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my WSC card!

Happy Stampin'!

The paper piecing of her sweater & skirt is brilliant & I love the inside - so appropriate. Well done on all the wins too, richly deserved. I've been amazed at how many designs you've posted over the last week.
