Simply Sweet

Today's card is made with a new set from My Favorite Things called Here's the Scoop.

I had SO much fun playing with this set! One thing I really love about MFT is that a lot of their stamps work so well for paper piecing, which is my fave technique right now. For this card, I actually pieced just about every single bit of the focal image.

I did the scene in a number of layers and papers. The bottom is the wall (Memory Box) and floor (Basic Grey). I did just a bit of shading under the chair line. The next layer is the whole chair (Basic Grey). Then the whole thing was stamped on plain white cardstock and I colored the woman, ice cream container and spoon with Copics (except for her shirt). I actually cut the container apart from the woman so I could curve the container for a more realistic look. The topmost layer is just the bottom portion of the chair with a bit of shading with Copics.

A little note: I didn't have just the right shape of Nestability to fit the image so I just cut the largest scalloped rectangle and overlapped the pieces just a bit to make it shorter. I then put the ribbon over it to cover the seam.

I absolutely LOVE how this card came out and can't wait to send it to someone!

Other materials used: sentiment - Here's the Scoop set from MFT; white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; Lavender Moon cardstock and ink - Papertrey Ink; Baubles from Stamping Bella; Copic markers; ribbon - unknown.
