Stitch your stress away.

Hello rubber-blogger-friends - HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope whatever it is you've chosen to do this evening that you have fun ringing in the new year (and no drinking & driving!!). I'm posting another quilting card today with my favorite drink actually.......COFFEE. I loved that this was part of Anna Wight's (Whipper Snapper) new quilting stamp sets (Springtime Quilt & Quilting Forever).

I chose to use the Spellbinder square diecut & leave a white edge to each block. I like the embossed edge & the "quilting look" it gives the squares. I also found these awesome little scissors in my stash - aren't they cute?!

Well believe it or not..........no designer paper was harmed in the making of this card. Other then the usual Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock (for colouring with copics), everything else is Stampin Up!

Stamps: Whipper Snapper (Designer: Anna Wight) Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze Accessories: mini scissor embellishment, May Arts white ribbon & brown ribbon, adhesive pearls Tools: Copics, sewing machine, Shapeabilities – Fancy Tag, Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
