Beanie Birthday

Isn't this stamp set the cutest, I received it in the mail just last week and I had such fun playing with it.

We are having another family challenge and I have asked the ladies to create something and to use paper piecing, I think it is a technique we have already tried but it is one of my favorites.

This is the video I used to inspire Barb and Judy

I heat embossed all the pieces then cut them out, I added some brown inked edges. I popped up some parts with foam tape. I also heat embossed some beans and the sentiment,

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye, The Alley Way Stamps - Breakfast Club and Wish Big.

Stop by Barb and Judy’s blogs to see how they have been inspired by this video.

I am also entering the The Alley Way Stamps - BE inspired challege #41, I love all the polka dots.



  1. Wonderful choice of papers! I love the paper pieced cups and mugs and that sentiment! A fun card, Nina!

  2. What a great card for a coffee drinker!! I like the dimension of everything popped up!

  6. Hi Nina,

    I'm so glad you chose this challenge - I think this paper piecing is a wonderful technique and not one I'd remember to use.

    The polky-dots are so much fun, and you know how much I'm addicted to java so this card is right up my alley.

    The beans are too fun!
