You Mean The World To Me

Hello, lovely crafters!

I hope you're all having a FAB weekend.  It's been a rainy Sunday here in Maryland--perfect for spending the day crafting! (:  I've been on a roll creating cards and having a blast trying out new techniques that I had been dying to try out.

I recently received a HUGE Lawn Fawn order (through V's Sweet Ideas) and it wasn't until today that I got a chance to play with all those yummy goodies!!! {[Stay tuned for a special post this Tuesday! (;]} Anyway, it's hard to decide which stamp set and pattern papers to use when you have so many to choose from!!!  Lawn Fawn is such a big enabler... *grin*

I now present to you my paper-pieced artwork... (:

I had SO much fun making this card and adding all the little details.  It's such a vibrant and happy card--it makes me smile every time I look at it! :D

All pattern papers are from Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka and Hello Sunshine.  I'm in love with all these papers!!! And it's the first time I decide to use them without fear of running out... I refuse to be a hoarder of pattern paper--all thanks to my girl, Kisha *kiss*  The stamp set and coordinating lawn cuts (dies) I used for this card are also by Lawn Fawn and they're called "Wish You Were Here" *swoon* After paper piecing the adorable globe, I added a tiny heart on it (Martha Stewart heart confetti paper punch), and also painted some shimmer on it with my Wink of Stella brush pen.  I then covered it in glossy accents, because I LOVE the effect it creates underneath.  I also added Caribbean twine (from V's Sweet Ideas' shop) to "hang" the banners from.  As a finishing touch I drew white faux stitches all around the card.  Seriously, this card just makes me SO happy!!! (:

I hope I have inspired you today.  Thanks for stopping by and for taking a look.  Hope you are all well.  May GOD bless you today and always! 'Til next time! XOXO
