Sarah Kay Vintage

Hello and Happy Thursday- already!!! Wow, where is this week going? I can't believe we are getting close to another weekend :-)
Well, today I have a card to share with you stamped with a really fun stamp from the Stampavie line by Sarah Kay called "Josephine Cuddling Her Pet Cat Nikki".

This stamp- along with all of the Stampavie stamps are now 20% off through April 28th at ABC Toys & Crafts!

I loved using this stamp! The image is just darling and it has so much detail. I decided to do a combination of things with it: I both water colored it using watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils, and I also did some paper piecing for her outfit, shoes and hat. The paper is from the K & Company "Bailey" designer Mat Pad.

To achieve the dots on the background layer (also from the same K& Company paper stack) I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. And for my sentiment, I used a Spellbinders ovals die and a Spellbinders scalloped oval die. And a lot of my favorite dimensional 3-D Dotsstickers were used to give it the pop that I love ;-)

I hope you will check out all the wonderful Stampavie stamps on sale now- there are so many great one from which to choose! And don't forget, there's still a little time to play along in our "Anything Goes" challenge!

Thanks for stopping by. As always, I'd love it if you would leave me a comment. Hearing from you always makes my day :-)
Until next week, I wish you many blessings~
Sarah
