20 days of paper projects – day 16

Today is Day 16 of our 20 day series of projects using patterned paper (also known as Designer Series Paper or DSP for short). This time we’re using scraps of paper for paper piecing a design in the foreground and a larger panel for our background.

Paper piecing is a great way to use your outline stamps and any scraps of paper you may have – a little goes a long way. And as an added bonus, the colours in your paper can give you a colour combo to use for the rest of the card.

The card base is an A6 portrait of Soft Sky. After adding a panel of Painted Autumn DSP to a mat of Garden Green card, the exposed edges of the card were run through the Big Shot with the Quilt Top embossing folder before adhering the layers direct to the card front. Stitched Shapes framelits were used to die cut two different size ovals from Whisper White card. The elegant lady from the Beautiful You set was stamped once onto the larger oval with Black Memento ink and again onto Painted Autumn DSP. The dress and the hat were fussy cut from the DSP and adhered in place over  the stamped image on the oval. Stampin’ Blends (coming on 1 November) were used to colour the skin and the inside of the hat. Using Garden Green ink, a birthday sentiment was stamped onto the smaller oval. Both ovals were popped up on the card front with dimensionals.

On the Whisper White insert, two more sentiments from the set were stamped in Garden Green ink and a small strip of Painted Autumn DSP was added to the bottom of the insert.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.
