TSG MOABH



Happy Mother's Day! 

Welcome to the 3rd annual Mother of All Blog Hops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps!   This weekend, we (customers and trendsetters) are featuring favorite There She Goes Clear Stamp sets.  Not only that, YOU have a chance to win some fabulous prizes!

To find out how, please go to the There She Goes’ blog and read the simple instructions.



 
My card for you today features the Little Moments stamp set, which is designed by Torico and filled with all sorts of sweet images.  When I started stamping and making cards, I admired these these hand drawn 'people' images, but since I haven't been able to invest the time and money in learning to color, I didn't think these types of stamp sets were for me. 

I was wrong.  These are perfect for piecing....all you need to do to be able to piece is cut with scissors and have paper scraps, and we all fit that bill!  In fact, paper piecing is quickly becoming one of my very favorite techniques. 

I used a ton of different papers in piecing this, and they all came from my scrap bag.  The background papers are from the Dotty for You and Roxie collections.  The baseboard is a piece of Colonial White cardstock that I scored twice (although it's hard to see it in the pictures).  The frame is also cut from Colonial White cardstock.  I scored the corners and then very lightly brushed some Cocoa ink over the entire frame with a sponge.



A little May Arts Twine and a brad for a nail, and that was it.  I left the frame hanging free, so when you're handling the card there's quite a bit of movement, and I adhered the image using dimensional foam tape
Thanks for coming by.  Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a wonderful Mother's Day!
