I carried the paper piercing technique over from last week to surround the gingham squares. I had forgotten that I had holes for paper piercing in my Tim Holtz ruler, so I used it here. The hearts were stamped and die-cut with Stampin' Up's Hearts a flutter set, and inked with various shades of Cat's Eye  Chalk inks. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
NO stamping at all here... this utilises a die from W PLUS 9, with a Pink Petticoat paper and a couple of other shades of pink card. The embossing folder is from Sizzix.


The first of my cards uses a selection of pink petticoat papers and one of the new sentiments. I'm not a huge orange fan but I really love this colour combo.  The butterfly is a punch from Stampin Up.

For my second card I used much bolder shades by using stampin up markers, and used a stamp set from CAS-ual fridays.  the sentiment strip was supposed to be stitched but the thread came out of the needle so it's piercing for a second week.

Do join us with this delicious colour combo!
