Paper piecing tutorial....better late than never!

The holidays are over and things are simmering down a bit. I feel like a human garbage can....ugh. I went to the gym this morning and felt every bite of holiday food. Anyway....

So a dear friend of mine had asked me about some paper piecing I had done and I thought I'd do a little tutorial. I'm using this ah-door-ah-bull stamp from The Greeting Farm. I stamped her on white card stock for my base and then stamped her dress on pink designer paper and I stamped the puppy again on a seperate piece of white cardstock. I cut out the dress and colored the belt. I colored the puppy with my Copic markers then cut him out. I colored my base stamp with my Copics and then glued my print dress onto the base with a glue pen. I then used foam pop dots to attach my puppy to the base being careful to line up his leash. I added an earring and a diamond tag for the pup. I adore the dimension.

    A very good tutorial! I understood every step and am anxious to try it myself. I just love the coloring. I think that I might like to try using these markers too. Hearfelt thanks for taking the time to post this delightful card and instructions. I appreciate it so much!


  3. Oh you are right, that stamp is just adorable! I cannot believe that you cut those tiny pieces out by hand and have such perfect placement so everything lines up.
