More Paper Piecing

Evening, all!

I have been paper piecing some thank you cards, since I needed a bunch, using Penny Black flower stamps Gossamer 3865K and Whispers 3377K


This one is made with blue Snippets - paper piecing is such a good way to use up scraps of paper! Though even so I have to force myself to throw away the snippets left after fussy cutting the design! And I apologise for the naff photo, the card base is in fact white!


And this one is, of course, made with pink snippets. the very tiny areas are coloured with felt tips.

The banners are by Lawn Fawn and I edged them with Spectrum Noir pens in the appropriate colours, to look like mats, and put them on foam adhesive to give some dimension.

Two very simple cards, with no glitter or Glossy Accents, just stamped and cut papers! An ideal technique for quietly cutting out while watching tv!

I'm now off to enter Pixie's Snippets Challenge

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

These are both so lovely. I think my fave is the pink...the paper is so delicate!
You and I have both been fussy cutting!

I second you I. The crime stats for Midsomer...I would not want to live there at all. We liked it so much better with John Nettles though!

Our all time favourite series has been Morse, Lewis and now Endeavour...such fabulous acting!!!

It is pitching down rain here, lots of thunder and lightening . It has knocked the power out and the cable and internet too...going to be a long night.

Hi Mags

Great use of your snippets using two of my favourite PB flower stamps.

Love how each flower head has a pattern all of its own.

Hope all is good with you.

Love Jules xx

Such pretty cards, the paper piecing looks fabulous. The coloured edge on the banner is a great idea, it looks really effective, Cathy x
