I'm continuing my weekend of new techniques with digi stamps to celebrate World Card Making Day. This time, I tried my hand at paper piecing. It was fun, but I think I need some practice with my scissors skills...or else maybe I need a better pair of scissors. :)
I used a sketch provided by Paper Smooches for this card. Both of the pieces of patterned paper are from the All Seasons 2 stack by Paper Studio. Then I used a Paper Studio embossing folder with holly on it for the next layer. I rounded the corners and inked around the edges in green ink.
See the heart made of candy canes? That was my paper piecing project! I printed the picture on white and red paper. I cut out the heart on the white paper, then cut out every other piece of the red one and adhered it to the white. It came out pretty good, I think.
This is going to be it for me today, because I have real-life plans that are going to last the afternoon. Come back tomorrow to see my third foray into the world of digi stamps!
