Hi! today's cards are made with a new set of stamps coming soon from Queen Kat Designs. What a versatile set! For the card on the left I stamped the tree on the same Chatterbox patterned paper as I used for the background, cut it out and attached it to the image stamped on white cardstock - voila!
The card on the right is also made with paper from Chatterbox and the same technique as above. For the grass I cut a strip of paper and cut slits to add some texture.
As always, thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome Wednesday!

Okay, now I feel stupid... I thought to myself "How the heck did she color in that tree identical to the background paper?" Then I read you stamped the paper too... doh!!! What a great idea; something I had never thought to do.

Yes. Yes. I AM an idiot!

You are just too inspiring!

Both these cards are great, but in particular I ADORE the brown and green one. Great job with the matchy grass. Looks adorable!

Very cute cards. Love the paper piecing on the dotted paper card.

Pretty cards, I love both looks. And I think the paper piecing technique is very cool. I should really do that more often.

As always, Toni, You are awesome! I love these cards. I too, am partial to the green and brown one. Caught my eye right away. Love the idea of stamping the image onto the same pp. I, like Maureen, would never have thought to do that.

Those QCD stamps just rock, and so do these cards! I think this tree is marvelous, and your paper piecing is just so perfect with it!

Miss M! April 23, 2008 at 11:33 PM  

Those are cute! I really love the first one.

Love the tree stamp! And such a great idea to stamp on the pp!

I have a question about Copics, if you wouldn't mind! :-) If you're a newbie and were THINKING about buying some, how in the world do you figure out which colors to buy? There are SO many! Thx for any suggestions! And thx for all the inspiration, Toni!
