A sweet birthday Release and paper piecing, using digitals.


I have several sweet cards to share with you today! 
As many of you know I very rarely do cute or sweet cards and when my DT assignment for Graciellie Designs came up for this card I kinda was stumped. But you know, after looking at it and thinking about the image of the sweet little girl I really started to love it!
This stamp set is the first hand-lettered stamp set, and it is a sneak peek of Gracie's  birthday celebration blog hop with a  completely new release coming on May 1st.


I love the hand lettered Sentiment.  

One of my favorite looks and something I can not do - so convenient to have a digital form I can use on many types of art!





I fussy cut and paper pieced this image.  you know all those yummy packs of designer paper you have, already color coordinated and just waiting to be used? printing and fussy cutting allow these types of card to work up fast.  This paper is from a G45 stack in my stash 

Using Best Glue Ever holds it all together, even the ribbon! Beautifully smooth and flat- so easy to get the adhesive in those itty bitty spots!




Here is an image I changed up a bit in my software - yes, you can do that with digitals!  Try doing that with Rubber!

I also used some of my "digital scrapping" stuff, if you are a Digi user, you probably have toms of stuff on file, I Loved how these elements worked with the Gracie Design!





These girls were fussy cut and added on to the printed images




Both of these cards will have no problem going through the postal system!

This sweet set comes with the little girl's apron in a solid ( remember you cand change this in your software to be a different monochrome color).  How nice would this look in Red?  Like traditional red work embroidery!
