Nature Bites...Live Laugh Love

Hello Everyone,
Stampabilities/ House-Mouse Designs called Nature Bites/hmur1073 Co-Star Mudpie(Heeee)

Antoinette, Here today sharing my love for these adorable critters by House-Mouse Designs. This is Mudpie. I don't have all their names memorized so thank goodness they are written on the stamp.
This stamp 'Nature Bites' inspired me to embellish with reminders that I need to Live, Laugh, Love more because...the nature of this world does bite and the apple tickled me with the sweet  remembrance...we are the apple of God's eye and He loves us.
I am wanting to also share with you again about Mariska van de Veer/Sending you A Smile Blog and her beautiful pieces of art on inspiring me to learn her technique of 3D paper piecing a stamped image. She has the tutorial on her Blog.
 House-Mouse & Friends were my first love into stamping and I have chosen to put my love of heart-art to making them look like they were there looking at you with love and the cuteness they are. And I am not going to lie I am antimidated by all those wonderfully talented people that color their images so awesome... so of course I will perfect my coloring along the way.  I sincerely hope you stop by Mariska's Blog and check out her amazing creativity.
I am jumping in with both feet and know I have a lot of practicing and work in perfecting my art of it but I love details so I am game...besides I am retired and it helps take my mind off my physical pain when I work on these projects.

In making this card I used :
   Spellbinders Nestabilities, foliage, Circle,
   FaberCastell & Anna Griffin Watercolor pencils,
   Recollection : Glitz, Butterfly, Flowers/Black & Red, Red Cardstock,
   Papers by: Glitz paper Pack/Cashmere Dame
   Big Flower is from a  hand punch(?)
   McGill Embossing tools

I am submitting this card to:
  House-Mouse & Friends/HMFMC#148 - Foods
  Papertake Challenges - Anything Goes/optional include animals/creatures
  Addicted to Stamps & More -  #52 Make Your Mark
  ABC Challenge - Q for Quite a Few/Lots of layers

I hope I have inspired you to jump in and try 3D paper piecing a stamp.

Love your gorgeous card! Your coloring is very good and the paper piecing is fantastic. I did go watch the video and she is amazing AND I am inspired to do more of this. I do some of it on my projects but SHE does it on a whole different level. Your flowers, colors and card design are wonderful on this. I love reading your blog posts. Thanks for joining us at House Mouse & Friends. Nancy (GDT)
