BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WEEK – DAY 5 – PAPER PIECED GIRLS!

I have been sharing projects all this week featuring the Beautiful Moments stamp set.  Today I have 2 classes using this set.  I thought for Day 5 of the Showcase I would share with you one of the cards we will be making.

This card was inspired by Su Mohr.  I changed it a little.  I liked the idea that you don’t have to colour it with Blends or inks or other mediums but by using patterned paper you can add colour to the images.  This Technique is known as Paper Piecing.

I have used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  To create this first stamp your image in Black Memento on to white card.  This card was cut with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I love this dotted pattern around the edge.

After diecutting the piece then stamp your images on your chosen pieces of Designer Series Paper.  Cut around the outside of the lines on these images.  Then adhere these to the stamped image.  It’s a bit like playing with Paper dolls when we were younger.  Do you remember that? That was such fun.

For the rest of the card I stamped the palm tree in Old Olive ink on to Crumb Cake and then embossed the card with the Subtle Embossing Folder. This was adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Before adhering the stamped white card I looped around some Linen Thread.  Then the piece was raised up off the card with Dimensionals.

For the sentiment it was stamped on Purple Posy card and then cut with a small Stitched Rectangles Die.  The left hand end was trimmed to fit on to the card but it makes a different look for the sentiment block too. The card was finished with a Pearl.

I hope you have liked the projects this week.  It has been fun creating with this sweet set.

I do hope you add it to your collection.  You can grab it in store now -> HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to visit my corner of blog land,

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
