Archive for the ‘Paper Piecing’ Category


For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC801), we’re headed to a lovely Pinterest Board & I found so many pictures I loved. I kept coming back to THIS picture, though, so I used it for my inspiration. All the lovely watercolors in the palette reminded me of this multi circle die. As side note, I always see the pretty little ceramic palettes w/ watercolors in them & they look so good. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to have breakable things like that in my craft room. So plastic it is! (And kind of messy at that.)

On my cards, I first die cut the large background die w/ all the circles out of watercolor paper, then used watercolors to paint in the circles & lightly color the background. When I put it together, I decided the w/c bg on top of the w/c circles was just too much, so I die cut a plain white version & did a mix-match ending up w/ 2 cards. The top backgrounds on both cards are popped up a little higher than the circle insets.

On this card, I die cut the fab new script word w/ shadow out of black & again in white, then switched them up. The rest of the greeting is white embossed on black. Then I added a few sequins.

I did basically the same on the companion card, but switched up the You die cut & used a different greeting to go w/ it. On both cards, I used a corner rounder to trim the card edges. A small one on the first card, & a med on this card.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC778) on Splitcoast, we have Kia as our Guest Hostess & the site she chose is Beijos. They have many beautiful things & I was inspired by THIS picture. I just love the cute little patterned stockings.

I actually die cut these stockings out of a few different papers, including a plaid..but w/ the background paper & the red frame, the ones in the white print were the only ones that really worked. The circular frame w/ the red stockings was die cut into a red square & I pieced the print & also some white stockings for a little layered contrast. After attaching the white fur top, I coated them w/ stickles. I love glitter glue, I cannot lie, lol. Everything is attached to a white stitched square w/ the center cut out & replaced w/ just a leftover circle frame. For the greeting, I used a tag die, cut to the center point, turned the die around & cut the angled end again to make it symmetrical.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC776), we are headed to Halloween Costumes. Some really spooky stuff there & I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my spooky scene, I die cut the grey bg & all the crows, bats, tree & owl out of black. The moon is just a largish yellow circle & I sponged some orange ink around the edges. The white fence & tombstones were die cut & I wrote RIP on a few of them & added cracks to others (these are all part of the Spooky House die) . I had a sponged piece of yellow/orange & die cut the pumpkin out of it. For the clouds at the top, I sponged on some picket fence Distress ink on the edges in order to have them show up a little more. Then it was just a matter of piecing everything all together. The only stamping on this was the greeting & I sponged the edges of it, too. The eyes were added on the crows & bats using a white Posca paint pen.
