It seems like forever ago since I've able to spend some "alone" time in my stamping room. Maybe this week:) I did spend some time with our granddaughter in there last week while they were visiting with us, though. That was fun!
So, I thought I'd show Amelia paper piecing. I still had my "new" items from Gina K out on my table. (The stamps I used on this card are both from a Gina K set. I think I got my Gina K order in November.) I stamped the bird on some light blue dotted paper and carefully cut it out. Then I stamped it on a rectangle of white and colored the image, except for the bird's body. I matted with matching cardstock and mounted on foam squares. I embossed the background with a new-to-me embossing folder from Darice and matted with the same color cardstock.
EDITED TO ADD: Hanny (and others), I did not get your private email. Sorry. The name of this embossing folder by Darice is Gem Swirl. I got mine from Consumer Crafts, but I'm sure it's available many places. Here is a link. (When I got mine, they were buy-one-get-one-free with free shipping at $30. I couldn't resist!)
Gosh, I hope to do something new sometime soon, but I still have so much that I HAVE to do - like go through my stamping stuff and purge, clean our closet, and, most importantly, go through the boxes and boxes of photos and papers from my mom and dad's house that are sitting on my treadmill, for lack of a better place to keep them. (We've been walking at an indoor dome.)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
