Hello, Hello

Hello, hello...I dont know why you say goodbye I say Hello.

Apparently that's a Beatles song but the one going through my head is the Glee version.

My summer time mission of using up stamps I got (so I can buy more) is progressing quite nicely. This card features the very last of my uninked Bella stamps, Gracie Lollipop. I purchased her and Ella. Though I debated for a while because they seem so similar and I did like Ella better. But I thought Gracie's dress would be way more fun to paper piece so I snatched her up too.

For my card I cut a piece of dp and lined the edge w/ a two way glue tape. Originally I had thought to use a die cut strip of ric rak but apparently I forgot. So I grabbed my MS glitter set and proceeded to dump glitter over the tape. I so {heart} the MS glitter. It coats awesomely and is uber sparkley. I used Mercy's Sketch, MTSC81. I thought it was perfect for showcasing little Gracie. And I actually brought out one of my woodblock sentiments from Amuse. I rarely touch my woodblock stamps, but I love Amuse's sentis the best. For some reason I find them super easy to stamp w/.

The Dets:
Stamps: Stamping Bella Gracie Lollipop, Amuse sentiment
Paper: PTI scarlet jewel, Basic Grey pantry & nook, Cosmo Cricket material girl
Ink: Memento black & cantelope, Copics, Versafine black
Accessories: Spellbinders ovals, MS glitter, PTI lemon tart button, felt, PTI flower die, krafters floss, glossy accents

  1. The paper-pieced dress is just way too adorable!! Totally looks like a real fabric pattern that would be used for a dress. And I like the flower button accent and how it kind of mimics the DP!
