Buggy Ride

More baby cards for you today....This stamp by All Night Media was the perfect image for my idea for these cards. I stamped it on white cs, colored it with Copics, & cut it out with Nestabilities Scallop & Regular ovals.
The base card is completely covered with dp by Basic Grey: Two Scoops for the girl, Urban Prairie for the boy. The buggies are paper pieced with the same papers as the backgrounds. I used another paper from the same dp set for the stripe through the middle of the card, adding ribbon. Next came the embellishments....corners from Cuttlebug, sticky dots from Joanns, & the little doodads on the buggies.
If you've never paper pieced, you really should give it a try. Here's what you do - Stamp your image (at least the part you want to piece) on dp as well as your white cs. Color the image on the cs as normal. Carefully cutout the portion to be pieced from the dp, making sure to cut right up to the outline of the image. Attach your cutout with a popdot to give the image dimension. Simple as that!
Thanks again for checking in & please keep praying for our Nation. Hugs, Laurie
