Holiday Cheer

This is a really fun stamp set if you want to try some paper piecing. I love the heavy lines of the Kim Hughes stamps especially for paper piecing. You have a little "play" with your cutting. I find if the lines are too thin you have to be SUPER careful with your cutting (not my strength). I also wanted to stitch on my paper pieces.....
Here is a close shot of my stitching. I used a zig zag stitch and shortened the stitch length. I love the straight lines of these trees which also helped me with my stitching, no curves, nice and easy.
Here are the card deets:
Heart Warmer (Kim Hughes Collection) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso (Adirondack)
Be Good DP (Cosmo Cricket)
Vanilla Embossing powder
Flower (Prima)
Button (Making Memories)
Sewing Machine
Corner Rounder (Marvy)

Come by tomorrow for a sneak peek from the Rummage Bin!

This is really pretty! I looked for CHF at CHA and couldn't for the life of me find it! I wanted to see the Thomas trains. (Guess it would have helped if I had had a map!)
