Happy Birthday!

I have really been enjoying making cards lately and today, I have another one to show you. I love to paper piece stamped images and that is exactly what I did to create this birthday card.

First I stamped the image (a Whipper Snapper stamp) on my white background and coloured in the faces with Copic markers. Then I stamped the image multiple times, on all the different colours I would be using to piece my image together. From there, you just hand cut out each piece and layer it on top of the stamped image on the white.

I also used my new Dymo label maker and the new Kraft Core cardstock (we are now carrying this at the store) to create the sentiment for my card.

I stitched with some twine and some floss and inked my card with Walnut Distress Ink.

Thanks for visiting :)

So cute Carolyn. I too am enjoying the new Dymo. Just need to figure out how to properly cut a 3/8" strip, straight that is.....
Will be sure to try this again, I had done the little guy in the rain.
