Papertake Weekly - To Die For!!

This is my second post for today. If you're looking for the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop, please scroll down one post.  It's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly! Dawny's challenge is to use something die cut (not punched) on your project. For this challenge, we're being sponsored by Dies to Die For, a fabulous shop and wonderful source for your die cutting needs!  For my card today, I'm using one of my new Little Darlings stamps! Is he not the absolute cutest??? Oh my gosh, I totally LOVE him!! And he was sooo easy to color! I'm sure I'm going to be a regular customer over at Love to Stamp!! LOL!


I stamped him on X Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copic markers, then he's cut out with a Nestabilities circle die and then matted on top of a petite scalloped Nestabilities die.  His britches are BG70's (one of my new favorite colors) which matched with the Basic Grey perfectly!  I colored the star with Y21, 23, and 26 and the skin is E11, 01, and 00.   For his shirt I used W1 under R30's.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley also cut out with Nestabilites. I used a Magnolia DooHickey die for the vertical trim. The Basic Grey papers are all matted with Bazzill cardstock, and then machine stitched.  For the ribbon treatment, I measured out a length of ribbon four times longer than the width of my card, and then basted it with two rows of stitches.  I then pulled the thread to gather up the ribbon and used double sided tape to hold it in place. I then attached a bow on top of that. What do you think? I kind of like it, but don't look too close! I need to get some colored thread! LOL! This is not the kind of thing to use white thread with. LMBO!


So that's it for me today! Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the fabulous creations by my teamies, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
