    Paper Pieced Heart Chair

    Again I wanted to show you that our background stamps can make a card on their own!  This time I used paper piecing technique with our Heart Chair stamp.  Not sure if you can see it on the photo, but I shaped the pieces from patterned paper to give the chair more dimension. 

    I didn't add a sentiment to my card this time, I think it can be used for any occasion and I can stamp a sentiment inside when needed.

    Project Recipe:
    Stamps: Heart Chair (click HERE to BUY)
    Papers: Bazzill Cardstock, Kaiser Craft DP
    Tools: TH Clock die
    Other: May Arts lace and ribbon, Pearl Pen in Gold

    a quick Hello!

    I am so in love with our Garden Bench stamp!  I think it's very elegant!  I wanted to make a card that shows it in it's full glory!  I wanted to show that most our background stamps can be used on their own too!  And also I wanted to show that even though our stamps are designed to be colored, they look great used in different mediums!!

    Garden Bench and Sentiment (from Luka with Flowers stamp) are heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

     Project Recipe:
    Stamps: Garden Bench (click HERE to BUY), Sentiment from the Luka with Flowers Stamp Set (click HERE to BUY) - both from La-La Land Crafts
    Papers: Bazzill Cardstock
    Tools: Silhouette Cameo for roses.  MS corner and border punch.  MS leaf punch.  Cheery Lynn English Doily (click HERE to BUY), Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish (click HERE to BUY)
    Other: Gold Embossing Powder

    Dress Up Marci Trinket Box

    Today I would like to share another Trinket Box project.  I had an idea of using the "Polaroid" frame and also wanted to do 3D paper piecing again.  For the paper piecing on Dress Up Marci I cut about 6 stamped images including two from designer paper, shaped and layered them together.  It is still not as "shapely" as I would liked it to be, for some reason after a while some of the parts flattened, but I still like the result.  I really need to look for a different type of adhesive. 

    This is one of the projects for my FEBRUARY Workshop.
    To see other projects in this Workshop, please click HERE

    FEBRUARY Workshop is scheduled for:
    Sunday, February 26th 
    10 am to 6 pm
    in the Crop Room at Scrapbook Island in San Jose, CA

    This Workshop is by invitation only.  If you would like to attend but did not receive an Evite invitation from me, please email me at and I will add you to my email list.

    This Trinket Box measures 6.5" x 9.5".  Inside box measures 4.5" x 6.5".  It's large enough to hold cards, photos and other treasures :-)

    Stamps: DRESS UP MARCI (click HERE to BUY), Sentiment from the GARDEN BENCH Stamp Set (click HERE to BUY)
    Copic Markers: 
    Skin - E000, E00 E11, E13
