Sanding & Paper Piecing with CPS

categories: ,
Another Friday night in the craft room, this time with Barbara!  So with the windows open and the music cranked, we set out for our crafty evening ... this time I used CPS Challenge #160, which is a sketch, as my inspiration. 

Barbara and I had a great laugh when I went to adhere my image to the card.  Ummm ... it was too big!   So I didn't quite get the horizontal element in but I did add a ribbon bow to the card.  So here is what I came up with ...

I used CTMH cardstock and sanded the paper after I embossed it so that the core would show through.  I love their cardstock, specifically because all of the cardstock has white core.  I also had quite a fun time paper piecing this card. 

Stamps:  Morning Star (Baby & Bundle of Joy)
Paper:  CTMH Taffy; Basic Grey (Kioshi)
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Copic Markers
Ribbon:  CTMH Sunkiss Yellow
Die:  Spellbinder Scalloped Circle
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
