Paper Piecings By Nikki DT Offering - Are You Ready to Party??

For anyone who’s planning a New Year’s Eve Party and wants something unique for an invitation, use the delightful bears (champagne and top hat) in the Happy New Year 2012 Pattern Set of Paper Piecings By Nikki found at http://www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com  There are even some numbers included in the collection for the year(s), so it's a set that can be used in future years too.  Nikki's collections are reasonably priced so they won't break the bank!

I used these bears in combination with Greeting Farm Stamps New Year Anya to create my invitation. Nikki’s piecings go with so many other stamps, digis, and piecings; they’re very versatile.

I started out with a base of embossed white and a second layer of patterned paper with just the right pinks and light colors to go with the green invitation – You’re Invited – which I cut out with my Bick Kick using a Sizzix die.  Then after fussy cutting my little bears and Miss Anya (colored with glitter pens), I pop-dotted them onto my card, added a cute bow for little mister top hat bear, and stickled the champagne bubbles, the balloons, and a few other spots for more texture.  Here’s my invitation:

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it…………….cyberhugs from Mama LoveBug!
