Stitched up ....

... Hi!  I managed to get all the ironing done yesterday and watched some TV while I did it!!  Makes it so much easier to do.  Today's card is for a couple of challenges:


Stamps: Serendipity - Quilted Hearts Set; Stampin' Up! - Bundle of Love
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #5
Accessories:  Hot off the Press  Papers - Cardmaker's Ultimate Pack Floral; SU Markers - Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette; Buttons


I'm really pleased to be able to play along with the paper piecing challenge at Serendipity this week.  I don't have many of their stamps, but this sweet quilted heart works perfectly for the "in stitches" challenge from CAS-ual Friday.  It's a good thing the DT don't mind faux stitches, because that's all I got!!  I embossed the stitch border and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the heart.  I stamped the heart five more times onto some scrap paper and cut out the sections, adhering them all to the card base.  The stamp actually has a couple of buttons on it, so I decided to add a couple of real ones for dimension.   I finished the front with this clean, simple sentiment.   The inside has a mat layer from more of the design paper and on the white panel a sweet verse and some baby toys.


That's a card for my stash - you never know when you might need a baby card!  Bye for now.
