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

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

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