Paper Piecing Take two……

Here’s another Paper Piecing tutorial. This is such a fun technique I figured I needed to do another step by step for you to try!

All stamps are from My Favorite Things

Stamps: You Take the Cake, Behind the Scenes – My Favorite Things

Paper: Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, DP from DCWV

Ink: Noir Black Palette, Creamy Caramel

Accessories: Markers, Diamond Stickles, Sharp Scissors, Ribbon from IQ Accessories

Step 1 –

Stamp you images. Here’s what I used:

Dress and background – DP from DCWV

Arms – Blush Blossom (or any flesh looking color)

Cake – Close to Cocoa (or off white if you want a white cake)

Add shadows and glitter. I used markers for the shadows on the cake, dots on dress and candles.


Step 2-

Cut out your pieces. I sponged the inside edge of the dress with a little red for shading.


Step 3:

Assemble your pieces onto the background piece. I did it in this order:

1. Dress

2. Arms

3. Cake


Finish your card!
