A House of Cards

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

oh happy day...

Hey everyone!  I have been working on some projects today, so I thought I would take a break and stop by this evening to share a couple of cards I made for Ally Scraps.  :)

I went with a balloon theme for both cards.  For the first, I punched out circle from patterned paper, added stitching, and some cute clouds made from Maya Road cupcake chipboard.




For the second, I used a balloon sticker from Echo Park's Playground collection.  I machine-sewed the split journaling spot with a decorative stitch, and then I added knots at the centers with embroidery thread.



  
You can find a detailed list of the supplies I used and instructions for recreating these cards here

Hope you all have a great evening!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your cards. The paper piecing on the clouds is very eye catching as is the buttons. In the card below, I love it too.
