Monday Inspiration: PPbN Design Team Offering


Marvelous Monday to you!  Today Mama LoveBug from LoveBug Creations is sharing a friendship pocket card with you.  This was created from the Paper Piecings by Nikki collection called I Love HOO You Are! found at http://www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com/item_109/I-Love-HOO-You-Are-PatternImage-Set.htm





To show off the versatility of this collection I made a friendship card for someone who adores sewing.  I took the girl owl and fussy cut her pattern after I downloaded it to my computer and printed it off.  Next I used gel pens to add dimension and a white gel pen to make little stitching marks along her wings.  Then I embossed several stamps using TCP sentiments – Friendships Are Sewn One Stitch At a Time and You Are Sew Amazing.  The background paper for the insert is from a paper stash I had with stitching details. 

I made owl paper for the pocket base using the image from the collection. Again using paper stash background paper with delicate stitching for the pocket lip and top I added SU pleated ribbon and an offset SU pattern stamp, which I also embossed.

Check out this and the many other paper piecing collections at Paper Piecings by Nikki http://www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com/

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