Hot Cocoa Cutie!


It's time to show you the adorable new a la mode stamps for the month - both sets are just too cute! I've used Hot Cocoa Cutie for my card today and went paper piecing wild!


My focal image is all paper pieced, even the coloured copic parts to get the layering right. I've used one of the new Mix & Match Banner Die-namics to add my sentiment and finished the card with a seam binding bow and lots of stitching.


Inside I have stamped a sentiment and shadow stamped the image as usual - I also added a big "yum" with the By the Letters die-namic.
