LIM74/FS281 - Paper Piecing



This year is our 15th wedding anniversary. I'm working on a '15 things I love about you' project, but Laura's card inspired me to also make an anniversary card. I used a DeNami 'love' stamp and various clear hearts. I found  SU! designer paper to paper piece the hearts, to incorporate this week's Less Is More challenge. Finally I added the little red hearts and the 'xv' for 15.

On to other business: Lura asked for more detail about the horse stamp used in these cards.
It is a 2" square wood-mounted stamp (I'm sure it was originally in the $1 or $1.50 bin at Michael's). One side of the stamp says : Hampton Art, Washington NC, 27889, Made in China, copyright 2009, Designed for Studio g. The other side has a barcode with number 7  29632 10168 7. I hope you find it. I looked on ebay (where I got mine) on Monday morning for you - no luck. If you want, please email me at ardythpr@gmail.com and send me your address - I can stamp a bunch for you and send them to you.

What a great way to use a large script stamp - make it the focal point of the card and then support it with a few well placed elements! "Love" how the three hearts follow the line of the stamp. The XV is just the coolest idea too!

Well, look at you, paper piecing and doing an amazing job of it! I love the designs. Isn't it the best to make a beautiful card for your spousie or a member of your family and know it's as beautiful (or better) than what you could buy?!

Happy 15!! I love your idea of writing down 15 things you love about him! Our next will be 41 and I don't know if I could manage 41! I'm kidding! Sit down!
