Week 73 Recipe

Here we are again, Saturday morning and  new challenge.
Thank you for all your FAB entries last week, you seemed to enjoy getting all shiny!

Our recipe this week will give you the opportunity to dig out some of those scraps of Designer paper that have been lurking around in your craft space, as our challenge is
'Paper Piecing'

Mandi

                               Not being a colourer I enjoy paper piecing, when I have the time to fiddle and cut!
This is an old Pink Petticoat digi image, Lola Rose. I copied the image into a Word Document, where I resized and printed onto white card stock. I then copied and pasted another 2 images onto the page giving me 3 in a row. I then lightly stuck the 2 paper panels to another A4 sheet where I knew the images would print. Gving me the perfect size to paper pierce the different elements. Once trimmed I stamped the Penny Black Happy Birthday and attached the panel with 3d foam to my 6" square card. Added the gems to finish.


This is a retired  Stampin Up stamp set. I paper pierced using scraps of pink, lilac, coral and olive. The 'flames' are glittered as is the edge of the panel. The Happy Birthday is Penny Black.

This is a stamp from their range which I think is SO cute and perfect for paper piecing! The papers I have used are from Cuddly Buddly, where I had my first ever designer role. I must say that the flowers were really fiddly to cut out!
This one uses Woodware stamps by Francoise Read. In order to keep the CAS feel to the card I used just a strip of blue to suggest the sky, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug random dots folder and added scored white edges.
The sentiment was computer generated in Pea Roxygirl font. Once more the papers are from Cuddly Buddly
