Mitten Builder Throwback Thursday...PPA274

For the Pals Paper Arts 274 Color Challenge I used the mitten builder punch and make a mitten stamp set for my Throwback Thursday card since both of these items are retired.  I also broke open one of my favorite retired design series paper call sweater weather because it matched the mittens so wonderfully.  Here is the color challenge:

And here is my card :)  I stamped the border of the hearts in chocolate chip on some very vanilla cotton ribbon for that soft look.  I sponged chocolate chip on the mitten cuffs and added some thick bakers twine to hold the mittens together so one doesn't get lost.  The sentiment comes from the Acorny Thank You stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I love how this fun fall card turned out!

  5. Love it! I was so miffed that the mitten builder punch didn't get much exposure! I think I will need to pull it out and use it this winter. This was so fun to see! That paper was perfect for the color challenge. So glad Mary featured this on her site!

    1. Pattie, for the mittens I used a two sided paper so I punched a mitten from each side and then just flipped one of the mittens over so they matched. Hope this helps :)
