New Toys!

Hi! I spent today playing with some new Christmas toys! As I mentioned, yesterday, I got a Janome Mini Sewing Machine, which has been a blast to experiment with! My brother also gave me some Stamping Bella Bittyblooms, which are just adorable!

Here are the cards I made today:  First up in Bluebell Bittybloom.  I used last week's sketch on I{Heart}tostamp SFYTT.  She was watercolored with reinkers and an aquapainter, and her dress was paper pieced with a piece of the patterned paper from this collection (Jersey Shore, so appropriate!).  I've been having a blast using my fine point glue pen and loose glitter to glitterify my images, like the polka dots and outline of the flower on this stamp.  I sewed a zig-zag stitch around the outside of the card, as well as on the panel towards the left of the card.  The flowers were made with an assortment of SU! punches.  


Next up is Poppy Bittybloom, who was also colored, paper pieced and bejeweled with glitter!  I used SU! dp called "Sweet Always" and stitched similarly to the card above.


Last, but not least, is Rosy, who was again, colored and bejeweled with glitter (I skipped the paper piecing this time).  I followed the sketch on Taylored Expressions (TECC48) for this card.  Designer paper is by BasicGrey, called "Sugared".  The background So Saffron piece was cuttlebuged with an embossing folder, and the strip of dp was stitched on.  I cut my main image out and layered her on top of some nesties (the top one was stitched on my machine).  I used a combo of SU! flower punches and Heidi Swapp ghost flowers for my flower image, and a SU! sentiment (Warm Words).
If you can't tell, I'm loving my Bittyblooms.  Thanks, Robby!
