If the paper fits …

 

 

 

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by

 

The theme this week for the Papertake Weekly challenge is …

 

If The Paper Fits

 

So all we want you to do a bit of paper piecing somewhere on your card or project - it's as simple as that!

This weeks prize is a fab voucher to spend in the gorgeous Ribbon Girl online shop

I was thrilled when I saw this weeks theme, I love paper piecing  …and I got chance to play with my new favourite stash

These amazing new Prima Paper Dolls by Julie Nutting are fabulous …

 

 

 

PTW 8 - Paper piecing

 

 

 

I paper pieced her hair, shoes and ruffle with some red card and then her dress, cardigan and headband with some of the gorgeous papers I used on the tag which are from Raspberry Road (Memories of Mom)

 

 

 

prima 2

 

 

The lace border die is Magnolia Doohickey cut out of Coredinations and then sanded back. I used the same card to print out the sentiments

The flowers are cut with my Crealies die, I use this a lot and I put a brad in the centre of each (American Crafts)

I sneaked a bit of tulle and white ric rac on there too from The Ribbon Girl

 

 

 

prima 1

 

 

I took this close up to show you the backing paper which I made by overstamping the lovely Raspberry Road paper with a Stampers Anonymous honeycomb (or maybe it’s chicken wire??) and also one of the brand new background stamps from Lili of the Valley. This release is a bit of a departure from the usual Lili of the Valley style and I think you’ll really like them. Watch out for sneak peeks from the Design Team over the next couple of weeks

Hope you like it, I enjoyed making something a bit different!

 

 

I think I’ll do another little random prize draw from all the comments that are left just to say thanks for stopping by so make sure you let me know what you think

 

 

Have a lovely evening

    1. Kate, paper piecing is where you stamp your image again onto patterned paper and then cut out bits and stick them onto your original one instead of colouring.
      It's a lovely technique, really effective especially with a larger area x
