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,

EMERALD ENVY PAPER PIECING FOR BEAUTIFUL YOU LADY!

If you don’t like colouring too much here is a quick way to add colour. Try Paper Piecing. You can use this idea for any outline stamps.  I have done this with the Beautiful You set.

I CASED this card from a Demonstrator friend on a group I am on.

For the Paper Piecing technique:

Stamp your image in black onto Whisper White card.  Ink it and stamp it again onto patterned paper.  For this one I used the Emerald Envy pattern in the Playful Palette DSP stack.  Then cut your image from the patterned paper one cutting just on the outside of the black line.  Adhere this image onto your other stamped image on the White card.

To assemble the card:

On a piece of Whisper White card emboss it with the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder. Layer that on to some black card. (TIP: If you like to save on your cardstock you can just add strips of black behind the white.  That’s what I did!!). 😉  Adhere this to your Emerald Envy Card base.

Mat the stamped piece with the lady on to black card and adhere on to your card base. Stamp your sentiment onto a White card rectangle and mat this onto a black card rectangle.

There are so many ways you can use the Beautiful You set.  I hope I have inspired you.  I am sure there will be lots more to share with you later.  Next week I will be focusing on the ‘Lift Me Up’ Bundle so stop by.

Have a great weekend.  I have some serious house sorting to do.  The whole house is getting decluttered, including my craft room and studio.  So if I don’t return next week send out the search and rescue teams. 🙂
