Beautiful You – Paper Piecing Technique

By | January 10, 2017

Hi there

Well I’m not sure what’s happened to summer but it’s great weather for crafting :).  I’ve been busy creating with some of the new products from the Occasions Catalogue.

My favourite stamp at the moment is the ‘Beautiful You’ set.  This outline stamp lends itself to a number of different ways to colour – ink, colouring in with the new watercolour pencils or the paper piecing technique.  I’d never done this technique before but it’s very cool and effective.

First off I stamped the image on a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Envelope Paper.  I used both sides of the paper – the patterned side for the dress and then the plain side for her hat – and then cut around the outline.

Next up I stamped the image on the card front and then adhered the DSP cut out over the stamped image.

I used Pool Party ink for the ‘puddle’.

I also bagged up some Note Cards and Envelopes I’d created from my One Sheet Wonder project – a nice gift to give away.

Check back later this week to see some watercoloured cards using this stamp set.
