Paper Piecing Class

Next week the class is on Paper Piecing and masking, and I am using a SAB stamp and a stamp from the new Occasions catalogue.  Both cards are partially cased from ones seen in the catalogue.  My thanks to Rambling Rose studios and Brian King.

I did not use a tutorial, but if you have never done this technique before, there is a good tutorial on Splitcoaststampers here

I decided to use the paper piecing technique using this stamp set as the majority of comments I have heard relate to the reluctance to colour the car.

Stamps: Beautiful Ride
Inks: Black Memento, Markers(Basic Gray, Real Red, Soft Suede, Real Red, Garden Green, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist), Soft Sky
Papers: Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Pretty Petals DSP
Accessories: 3 scalloped circles adhered to form an arc to form clouds in sky

The second card used Honeycomb Happiness (SAB) with its coordinating embellishments

Masking was used initially to stamp the birds and balloons, and then using paper piecing, Love Blossoms DSP was added over top each bird.
The honeycomb embellishment was adhered to each balloon.

Here's a view that's a bit closer.

Stamp: Honeycomb Happiness (SAB)
Inks: Black Memento, Markers(Basic Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Gray)
Papers: Rose Red, Love Blossoms DSP, Whisper White,
Accessories: Curvy Corner Trio Punch, Honeycomb embellishments, dimensional.
