Everytime I hear this phrase, 'Cut It Ouuuuuuuuuuuuut'....I am reminded of the show Full House with the Olsen twins. Well, Uncle Joey used to say it all the time.....and yes, I used to watch Full House. Don't judge me. Hehe.
Anyway, this week that is the name of our challenge!!! Our wonderful hostess Donna wants us to use paper piecing on our creations!!! Honestly this is one of my favourite techniques yet somehow I always forget to use it! What a great (not to mention easy) way to add interest to your images by giving them some patterned clothing! It's almost like playing with paper dolls....yes I used to do that too! What? Didn't you?? I bet you did!!
I used the lovely Caroline on my card and the papers are from the Stella Rose Hazel line by My Mind's Eye! They have nice little patterns in those 6x6 pads and small patterns are usually best for paper piecing outfits, I've found.
I coloured up Caroline using my Copic markers then stamped her again on the patterned paper. I cut out her dress and attached it over top of the original one. I used my Nesties to cut her out and emboss the frame. The card base is a coral Bazzill Bling cardstock in 6x6 finished size and I used Kraft paper for matting and accents.
The sweet wrinkled ribbon is from a wonderful little Etsy shop called Prairie Bird Boutique!! She has all sorts of gorgeous colours and I have to admit that once I got my first order, I turned around and ordered more! SO yummy! I also added a pink through the ribbon's bow at the side and the sentiment on a scalloped oval punch. Lastly I added a sweet little flower in her hair with a white brad.
Now hop on over to the Krafty Girl Challenge Blog and check out the other samples from the Krafty Girls! Then be sure to join us this week for the challenge and if you link it up to that post and use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, you could be our random winner of some new rubber!!
