My Time to Craft DT #253 'Paper Piecing.'

Good morning, all! I hope you're enjoying your weekend! My house is full of people - my daughter is over from Ireland, and my son, daughter-in-law and baby granddaughter are here from Shropshire. We have a family wedding tomorrow, my niece is getting married!

It's time for another Challenge at My Time To Craft! and it's a technique that is very popular: Paper Piecing!

My card is very simple because I wanted the Penny Black image 'Love Blush' to stand out. (Sadly, it looks as though the stamp is discontinued, at any rate, I can't find it online.) It is very fiddly to cut out all the petals!

I used Lotv Bonnets and Bowties papers. I stamped the image on 3 pink papers and 1 green one, and then I stamped the image in the middle of my card blank. Then it was a matter of finding my scissors and snipping away - it took quite a while! i did cheat a bit and coloured the very narrowest sections with felt-tips!

The banner is the Bannerific set by Lawn Fawn. I love these banners, the stamps come with matching dies! i added it on foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

Go and see the wonderful paper piecing done by my teamies at My Time to Craft you will be inspired! :)

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
