We’ve got a couple of cuties again for you this month and I have a card using each of them to show you. I’m starting with PI – Picture Perfect.

As is usual for me, I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper, colored her with Copic markers, and paper pieced her skirt and top. Then I fussy cut her out and popped her up on a
Die-namics At the Movies Die Only film strip element, backed with patterned paper. I wrapped some MFT Wild Cherry grosgrain ribbon around the card, tied some twine around and added the sentiment tucked under a twine-tied button. The sentiment is stamped on half of a Die-namics Sentiment Strips die cut. MFT card stock used on this card is Wild Cherry, Hot Fudge and Whip Cream.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from the Simple Pleasures Sentiment mini.

And here’s my second card, using PI – Piggy Bank. How cute is this!? She was stamped, colored, and paper pieced as well, then cut out with a Die-namics Rectangle STAX die and matted with another.

The bottom scallop border was done with my Die-namics Simply Scallops, Small die with some pearls added. I tied around some of my favorite twine and popped up the sentiment from the set, stamped on a die cut from the Die-namics Lead the Way set that’s included in this month’s collection. MFT card stock used on this card is Whip Cream and Wild Cherry.

And here’s the inside of this one, with another sentiment from the set.
