Weekly Challenge #12 - Paper Piecing

This week, our team is showcasing paper and embellishments from the My Mind's Eye Now & Then Izzy line, which is now available at the Cuttin' and Stampin' Scrappy Supply Store.
My project got underway when I saw the bow-tie paper and thought about how it could be used to make a really cute patterned cat.  So the kitty is grey and white, and I paper-pieced his mouth too.  Then, of course, I had to add the mustache enamel shape.  The blue cardstock for the card is actually the darker blue jeans Bazzill cardstock -- and it looks like it was custom-made to match the mustache.
I chose "thrilled for you" as the sentiment because of the happy & excited look on kitty's face.  I punched out photo corners from another of the patterned papers and then cut out the "smile" and floral pennant shapes from one of the cards from the 3"x4" pack.  Paper Smooches stamp sets used:  Nine Lives & Simply Said.
Now it's your turn!  Please join us and submit your paper-pieced creations.  Click HERE to add your project(s).

Weekly Challenge #10 - St. Patrick's Day

We're celebrating St. Patrick's Day!  Each member of the team created cards using the new A Charmed Life product line by Simple Stories, which is available in the Cuttin' and Stampin' Scrappy Supply Store.  As you'll see, this product line has beautiful, bright colors and is not specific to St. Patrick's Day.  It's great for any time of year.
My card features quite a few items from the A Charmed Life product line:  The big green "LUCKY" was cut from one of the SN@P Cuts, the "so very lucky" heart strip is from the Border & Title Strip Elements, "#LOVE" ticket and the little blue flower behind the brad is from the Fundamental Cardstock Stickers, the round "Lucky ME" is from the Bits & Pieces pack, and the brad came from the accompanying brad pack.  As you can see, for a change, nothing was stamped.
I hope you'll join us and make a St. Patrick's Day-inspired project of your own!  You can enter your project HERE by March 17.
Happy Stamping!
