{counterfeit kit blog hop!!}

First of all, I think the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog and their concept of copying kits is the greatest idea!! :) :)

They're having a blog hop, so this morning I made a quick card to join in the fun.

I went to the manufacturer jillibean soup - love their stuff!!

I admired these cut-out cards by Wendy McKee and thought I'd give the cut-out technique a try.

Here is what I came up with.

The first thing I did was cut some strips from jillibean pp. Then I zig zag stitched them onto a piece of white cs. Next I cut out a house shape from Kraft cs. I inked the inside edges of the house w/brown ink and then adhered the jillibean pp to the inside front of the card. Using brown DMC, I hand stitched the outside of the house. The crocheted flower is Offray and the tiny "love" tag is jillibean. The heart stamp in the corner is Technique Tuesday (stamped twice) and the edge punch is EK.

I also finished the inside of the card. I love how this card turned out and encourage you to give a cut-out card a go.

Thanks to the Counterfeit team of awesome girls (my friend Julie Ann is one of them!!!) for their very fun blog hop and inspiration!! :) :)

Have a great day!! hugs, patti

p.s. please note - blogger won't allow me to leave blog comments {still!}. Still hoppin' through the Counterfeit May blog hop and enjoying everyone's work so much!! :)
