Thinking of You...

I just HAD to try my hand at another card for Less is More's die/punch challenge ...found a stamp at AC Moore's, yesterday, that gave me ideas.  And when a stamp gives you ideas...well, I go with them...here's the Hero Arts stamp:
Masking the bottom of the stamp, this is what I made with it:
Used Papertrey dies with Papertrey polka dotted paper and chipboard.  I decided on the yellow...thinking of a smiley face and put the letters in the shape of a smile...hee  hee.... Here's another one:
 My many years of cross stitching have begun to come in handy as I have 3 boxes of colored floss (that I almost got rid of NUMEROUS TIMES, but didn't...thankfully) and chose 5 colors that made ME happy when I looked at them.  I wrapped floss around a piece of chipboard, comparing the width of each color with the die cut letters.  Here's a close up:
 I know that my "h" is a little off, but it was hard getting the letters perfect...if anyone has any tips to conquer that...PLEASE let me know....but....that aside.....Yeah...NOW I'm happy!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. These are both fabulous cards Lisa, I would be happy too if I'd created them!
    I love the curved text but the there'd showing through the letters is just brilliant :0)
    I have a good stash of embroidery threads too from my X stitch days :0)
