TJ Blogstravaganza - Paper Piecing


I was talking to my friend Marjie the other day about the Holiday Lineup set, and mentioned it would be the perfect set to use with the Paper Piecing Technique, I'm happy with the outcome of the card, but don't think I'll be adding it to my "make these cards for Christmas List", unless I can talk one of the boys into cutting out the pieces of DSP after I stamp them!

Paper Piecing is a great way to use up the scraps of DSP that you save. Here I used some scraps from my Holiday Treasurers and Ski Slope DSP, to add to my stamped image from Holiday Lineup. I also used scraps of black and orange card stock for the hat and snowman's noses.

I stamped the Sanded Background in Kiwi on my Kiwi card stock, added my sentiment from Many Merry Messages in Black, and used my crop-a-dile to punch holes so I could add my Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon tied through my Silver Hodge Podge Hardware piece.

Details:
Stamps - Many Merry Messages, Holiday Lineup, Sanded
Ink - Black, Kiwi Kiss
Card Stock - White, Black, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Only Orange
Other - Holiday Treasurers DSP, Ski Slope DSP, HPH, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Crop-a-Dile
