The Friday Mashup #42

There is another fabulous challenge over at The Friday Mashup Blog.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using "Paper Piercing".  
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red & Early Espresso".  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with the "Color Combo & Paper Piercing"

I am hoping that I managed to get close to the colours for this challenge, I picked up this pretty paper in one of the local craft stores and could not wait to use it. I love the soft pink and gray, I layered with brown cardstock and added texture. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in brown,  and put a  light brown edge for all layers. I finished with a felt heart from my stash and some twine.

Supplies: Natural White and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Authentique, Inkadinako-Happy Valentine’s Day, misc twine and felt heart.

I guess I need to brush up on my reading skills or pay better attention to details piercing and piecing look real similar. Guess when one my brain saw...



  1. Lovely - so simple and elegant, Sis.

    Seeing all the texture in your cards makes me itch to collect more embossing folders. They really add!

    Can't wait to see your next creation.


  2. the card is awesome ...and I can see where piercing and piecing look similar...cause I went and watched a few tutorials on piecing paper ....then figured out I was not reading it right ...but girl your cards are so awesome no one would of noticed. Thanks for sharing...


  3. Oh my, Nina. I LOVE this!! Great balance of elements...those hearts really stand out, but in a good way! Thans for playing the Friday Mashup again!
