Paper Sweeties Fun Wishes

Hi!

I am over on the Paper Sweeties blog today with another creation using Emma in celebration of their second release that is just a few days away! I won Miss Emma and one of her sweet outfits during the launch of Paper Sweeties last month. They are adorable and so fun to paper piece! :-)

I started with a cream card base and piecing together the pink stripe and aqua polka-dot patterned papers from my scrap pile.  A paper doily was added to the center of the card front adding a strip of yummy tickets.  A row of chocolate buttons were added to the bottom of the tickets. 

 Emma was paper pieced with some fun papers hanging out in my scrap pile. I used colored pencils and mineral spirits to bring her to life. Her pigtails were adorned with some pretty pearls! Finishing touches include a die-cut heart made from burlap, beautiful pink and aqua flowers and some leaves that have had a touch of glitter added for a little extra sparkle and shine.  The sentiment "Fun Wishes" from You Are Fabulous was added to the lower left corner for a finishing touch. 

I am also joining over at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge. More goodies from the stash pile.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Tammy, absolutely delightful! It's true, there's quite a bit of paper piecing going on right now - one of my favourite techniques. LOVE the hessian/burlap heart.

Grin, I picked a huge roll of burlap up in JoAnn's today - but didn't have the nerve to ask for a 2" strip to be cut (which would haqve been less than their minimum I guess). Would love to know who makes the heart you used here - fabulous!

It's Di again - back for another peek at the burlap heart that you MADE yourself.You clever little crafter!! I just found a source of blush pink burlap in the UK - so guess what I'll be ordering once I emerge from under the pile of holiday laundry :)

Thanks so much for getting back to me Tammy.
