Hello friends!! A crappy rainy day here in my neck of the woods, but it was brightened up considerably by the fact that I got to meet up at Hobby Lobby with my friend and stamp designer extraordinaire, Lisa Lara!! It is so much fun when you actually get to meet fellow crafters and get to know them. Prior to going to meet Lisa I started working on a card for this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge and when I got back finished it all up. This week the challenge is paper piecing.. one of my favorite techniques.
Cardabilities sketch. For my paper piecing I was helped along a little bit by the fact that I used the matching Pretty Peonies dies to cut out the main flower and the leaves. I then stamped a second flower and cut out the center portion. All the pieces were layered using foam dimensionals. I realize this isn't the classic paper piecing technique of stamping and then trimming out the images by hand, but I think it is a new twist on the technique.
Thanks for stopping by...
