Happy Make It Monday! Today's project is called paper piecing and I have two examples for you! The new Beautiful You set works wonderfully for this technic. Scroll down for the step-by-step on how to make this fun card!
The dress is a piece of patterned paper from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack. I used my blender pen to fill in the underside of the hat brim by just dragging some of the ink from the stamped image to fill in the white space.
First stamp the image on to your card stock. I used Night of Navy ink for this project.
Clean the stamp and then stamp the image on the Designer Paper using StazOn Jet Black ink. I used the StazOn because it dries better on the designer paper (StazOn dries by evaporation instead of absorption) and I needed black so that I could see the image on the dark navy pattern.
Now cut out the parts that you want to piece in to your stamped design. In this example, I did the hat and the dress.
Now adhere them to the image. If you want to, you can color in the underside of the hat brim with a Night of Navy marker or the blender pen like I did on the finished sample.
I used the Stylized Birthday stamp for the inside greeting.
Here is a second example of paper piecing using the Hey, Chick stamp set. This set is a FREE choice with every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping) during Sale-a-bration (now through the end of March).
To select your free sale-a-bration item place your order, then in your shopping cart screen in the lower left you will see a spot to click to select which Sale-a-bration item you would like.
For this version I used the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (Sahara Sand) and did the same process. Stamped the image on the white card stock, then stamped it on the patterned paper and cut out the body of the chicken. I used the Real Red marker to color the comb and waddle. I used the blender pen with the Sahara Sand ink pad to make the ground. The background is with the new Dynamic Hexagon Embossing folder. This folder makes an incredibly deep impression in the paper - it's awesome!
