happy in my heart...

Hello! First today, I wanted to show you a little card that I made last month that I forgot to post. I am so loving the Papertrey Ink products (if you couldn't tell!) and am having so much fun creating with them. When you try something new, it's like a breathe of fresh air. That's how I feel with stamping and die cutting lately! I am having fun with it and it's making me very happy! :)
On this card, I used some Papertrey ink felt to make a little house and decorate some Maya Road chipboard. I used the Wonderful Words die for "happy" and added the touch of red with stitches. The red words on the bottom are the "Wonderful Words Additions" stamps.
 Happy in My Heart card:

STAMPS: Wonderful Words Additions
PAPER: cardstock - Papertrey Ink, patterned paper - Pink Paislee
INK: Pure Poppy
DIES: Wonderful Words
OTHER: chipboard - Maya Road, twine - Pink Paislee, button and felt - PTI, 
Cuttlebug embossing folder - dots, Melissa Frances pearl.

Next is a card made with the Fruit Fusion stamps. I was playing around with the Edgers #3 dies with red cardstock and found that if you don't cut all the way through the ends (make the cardstock just a touch longer than the die), you get a nice pocket, perfect for tucking in a tag...

This is the new Fruiti Tutti paper! Cute, huh? I stamped the little criss-crossies onto the red cardstock with the Fruit Fusion: Pear set. The wording is Fruit Fusion: Berry. One tip: when stitching on the felt, it stretches the felt a bit and makes it not quite straight....I'll have to remember that next time. It was difficult to make it look straight on this card. I cut another word out of the Wonderful Words die and used a pin to "underline" it. :)

You're Berry Sweet card:

STAMPS: Fruit Fusion - Berry and Fruit Fusion: Pear PTI
PAPER: red, white and green cardstock, Tutti Fruiti paper - PTI
INK: Pure Poppy and True Black - PTI
DIES: Wonderful Words and Edgers #3 - PTI
OTHER:  felt, button and twine - PTI, machine stitching.

Hope you are having a great day,
