So here is my card for the hop! I'm using the adorable Needle Little Love stamp set and new matching Icon Dies! Sew cute! :)



Since I do so much watercoloring and distress inking, I wanted to do something a little different with this card. I love patterned papers, and to my dismay, over the past few years you see less and less of them on cards. I admit I really do love the CAS look, but I miss my paper :) I've been trying to incorporate little bits of it back into my CAS style :) So that's what I did today. I used two different papers for my background. All of the stamps were colored with Copic Markers, cut out with the matching dies and adhered with foam tape.


I stamped the sentiment with black ink right on the patterned paper, and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins. 

Needle Little Love Icon dies will be available to purchase on August 31th at 8:00pm pacific time. Once the release goes live, you will find the new products HERE.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! Next stop on the hop is the fabulous Laura Bassen! Happy hopping!

Kay :)

  1. Very cute Kay - love all those images colored so softly. I know what you mean about the patterned paper. I found myself doing the same thing so ever since I've made a concerted effort to use it even if it's just some tiny strips.
