Meet Flossie and Winnie!


Today's new Flossie stamp from Little Claire is called 'Flossie and Winnie' - it features the very cute Flossie all wrapped up for winter with the sweet little Winnie.  I think she'd have been a bit overdressed for the weather we had today - it's been like a summer's day!

You can find today's stamp here on the Little Claire website and don't forget to look at the blog here for more great cards from my fellow Design Team members plus a chance to win one of the stamps.

Today's card uses one of my favourite techniques - paper piecing.  I've paper pieced Flossie's coat and also Winnie's little coat.  For the background I've layered up blue gingham paper to match the paper piecing and kraft paper.  The sentiment is one of 'Claire's Super Six' from Little Claire and I've die cut the mount again using kraft paper.

Some challenges for the card:

Paper Creations Ink - 'favourite technique' (paper piecing and stamping)
Papertake Weekly - 'get krafty'
Moving Along With the Times - 'lots of layers'
