Paper Piecing Present

I know it's been several days since my last upload, I've just been busy. In the last few days I've gone on an excursion with the Kindergarten and then my 7yr old sprained a finger! I am making a lot of things that will be shown over the next couple of weeks though! :)

Today's card is a fun one for a birthday. I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with green bazzill, pink bling bazzill and some fun Abbey Road DP by My Mind's Eye. The green was punched with the Fiskars Lazy Days of Summer punch (one of my favs!). The present and tag are from the Flourishes All Wrapped Up set and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla. I stamped it again on some Abbey Road DP and paper pieced it to make a fun dotty box. I popped it up on top of some Very Vanilla embossed with the Swiss Dots EF and more green bazzill (cut with Sm and Lg Circle Nestabilities) and layered on some pink bling bazzill cut with the Label 9 Nestabilities. Around the circle I pierced it with a paper piercer and Mat Pack. I finished by adding some tiny Kaisercraft Rose Pearls to the present and larger ones in the top and bottom corners.

Stamps - All Wrapped Up (Flourishes)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Green and Pink Bling Bazzill, MME Abbey Road DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Label 9 Nestabilities, Lazy Days of Summer Fiskars Border Punch, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Scissors, Swiss Dots EF, Kasiercraft Rose Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)

I think I need that Fiskars punch! It is really pretty. Your designer paper is wonderful too such a happy pattern and colors.

Oh, and when my daughters were in kindergarten I went on a field trip with them to Pumpkinville. We saw the apple orchard and got to choose an apple to eat. Then we rode the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins...Kathryn was excited and got off the wagon ahead of Julia and I. K took a few steps and tripped. She had a trench over her left eye (she did not even hit a rock; he ground was so hard from the drought we were in). The ambulance had to come up the mountain out to the farm to take us back to our town. She got 7 stitches! My girls are now 7yo and in second grade, but K stills calls it her "pumpkin scar" :)
