Archive for the ‘Paper Piecing’ Category


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!

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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
