Archive for the ‘Paper Piecing’ Category


For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC825) we’re headed to Perfectly Posh Boutique & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture for my inspiration.


My card started w/ die cutting the pieces for the truck & pumpkins then paper piecing them together. To make it appear that the pumpkins were in the bed of the truck, I attached them to the back side of the lower section of the truck then attached the top of the truck under the pumpkins. On the kraft colored background I used the 2 part plaid stencil & a combo of the two blue Distress inks. The color is much closer to the truck in real life.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re headed to Elle Decor where I found THIS picture.

For my baby girl card, I die cut the toy blocks out of white, pink & green then paper pieced before stamping the letters on them. I used foam to pop them up a bit & a little green/white twine to “hang” them from before attaching the envelope like topper. The topper is slightly elevated but not so much that it won’t fit into a normal A2 envelope & it will go thru the mail w/ no problem.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
