Great Things from Little Paper Shop!

Today is Little Paper Shop Monday and that means another challenge!! YAY!!

I don't have any Sahara Sand but I had Kraft AND Riding Hood Red AND Chocolate Chip - amazing! I always say "I don't think I have those colours" and then when I really dig, I can usually find them - silly me!!

I used two stamp sets today, Flourished Dove and Easter Blessings. I love the flourish in this set and it stamps so brilliantly and true!

I punched out some flowers from my EK Success flower punch in Riding Hood Red and ran them through the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder, before adding the buttons which have a bit of twine tied in them.

The threading or treading water punch (any website I go to has a different name for it) was used on the bottom of the kraft panel.

I just had a brilliant idea to go to the Fiskars site and see what it is called and here you go - Threading Water Punch!! (I have never heard of anyone threading water but whatever)

I ran my Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream ink pad around the edges of the Chocolate Chip cardstock to give it some depth!

I love these colours together and was quite happy with how this turned out! Take a look around at the other girls creations! Some are on holidays, so they may not have made a card.......

April 1st marks the one year anniversary of Little Paper Shop YAY!! Julia is telling us she has some things planned, so take a peek at the Little Paper Shop blog starting the 1st of April and find out!!
