Friends With Flair – Fussy Cutters Unite!

Hey, it’s Friends With Flair Friday! Here’s a card in celebration of our weekly hop:

I love challenging myself to make a card as pretty as possible. This card uses Spellbinders dies, Ippity stamp sets and a KOM stamp from April 2010. Love the pretty soft red paired with cream, brown and green. And yes, the fussy cutting is a hassle, but it looks so pretty – and doesn’t take as long as you’d think.

This week I also recorded a video for my new Doodle School feature – take a minute or two and check out my faux stitching tutorial! And I had my tiara-donning head shot taken which you will be seeing on Paper Crafts blog in a couple weeks. Here’s an outtake from the session:

I was going for a “pointing-to-tiara” look but I think I ended up with “pointing-to-brain”. Makes me laugh.

    Yes, as pretty as possible this card is!!! (How’s that for some Yoda-speak??) Love those colors (swoon) and the papers are fabulous. And the fussy cutting? Totally worth it!
