Hi everyone! It’s the last day of previews with My Favorite Things! Teaser prizes continue so be sure to leave comments as you visit each blog. You can find the complete list of participating DT members HERE after 11 a.m. EST.
Today the team is sharing samples of Well Read (this month’s WTG), Clearly Sentimental about Books and Flopsey Flies a Kite.
Throw Your Dreams Into the Air
Here’s Flopsey, leaning back against his yellow (*shrugging*) rock. I’ve used Cosmo’s Togetherness again. (I’m thinking I may need to buy a second paper pad.)
I paper-pieced Flopsey’s kite along with the tiny bows. Instead of gluing the bows down all the way, I placed a tiny dot of glue only in the center which allowed me to slightly bend up the ends of each bow.
When gluing Flopsey, I placed the glue only on his body and feet which allowed his ears to pop off the paper a bit, adding just a little more dimension to the card.
For the sun I’ve used MFT’s Sunshine Die-namics die cut. I stitched a button to the center, leaving the jute string to hang beneath.
Since the button is not flat on the back, I placed a piece of a pop dot on one side to hold it level.
On the inside, I completed the sentiment and stamped the kite.
