Hi everyone and welcome to stop #9 on the first ever Paper Players Blog Hop! I'm so glad you could join us on our hop through all the new products in the Spring Mini Catalog! If you're following the hop, you've arrived here from Marlene Peters's blog where I'm sure you found loads of inspiration! I am so exited to share my favorite stamp set from the mini catalog with you, Sew Suite:
I started with an Early Espresso base and using another favorite--Pattern Pieces--stamped the patterns onto some Daffodil Delight cardstock creating my own background paper. I am a big fan of paper piecing--probably because I'm not great at coloring(!)--and I love the way the mannequins look in all the papers from the Sweet Stitches line. I stamped the gals in Early Espresso onto Whisper White CS and then again on 3 different papers. I cut them out and adhered two with SNAIL and the middle one with dimensionals.
A lady just isn't dressed without her pearls so I trimmed each gal at the waist with a row of adhesive Basic Pearls. Such a fun little touch! I matched one of the mannequins to the strip of DSP I used along the side to pull it all together.
And my other favorite item is this adorable Melon Mambo Pom-Pom trim! Isn't it just the cutest?! So perfectly coordinated to the designer paper.
Now, it wouldn't be a blog hop without a little candy so I offer you one of my favorite items, the can't-hardly-make-a-card-without-it...Polka Dot Impressions Folder!
