Peas On Earth

I fell in love with this World Peas stamp from Penny Black the first time I laid eyes on it! I got it from Stamper's Dream.

I went all out and decided to paper piece the earth AND the peas! Yikes. It was a little putzy, but oh, it turned out so adorable. These photos don't do the card justice.

I found a piece of blue scrap designer paper to stamp and cut my earth from. Then I stamped the image again on a bright green designer scrap for the green part of the earth. This is where the putzy stuff came in. Those continents are small! But, I managed to stay focused and eventually got them all cut out and glued on to the blue paper. After cutting the peas out, I mounted them onto the main image with dimensionals. I colored their hats with my Copics.

A little bit of straight stitch sewing and a beautiful ribbon finished the card off perfectly! If you like this card, be sure and come back tomorrow to see the other card I made using this fabulous stamp!

Well, I don't have a lot of time to chit chat today. I have BSF this morning, so I need to jump in the shower and get ready. Then I have a business lunch, and then tonight the boys have choir and Hubby and I are going out to eat with his sister and BIL and dad. Have a grea day!

Hugs,
Amy
