Welcome to the Paper Pieced Neighborhood!

K… I have some really fun cards to show you today using the April Club Stamps from The {Stamps} of Life. The set is called houses4us and it will be available  today (April 1st) at The {Stamps} of Life. If you’d like to see more samples of this set you can take a peek at The {Stamps} of Life Gallery.

It’s been a while since I’ve done any Paper Piecing and I just went to town with this set!

If you are not familiar with the technique I have a tutorial –>HERE & HERE to get you started.

Happy Happy Easter!

This week the Outlines girls were challenged to make a Easter card.

I chose the H-1019 Sketchy Bunny(on sale ~ 20% OFF) stamp for my card today. I colored the image with Copic markers and used my Kiwi Pearl Pen Pearl Pen for the flower centers.

The tail was fluffed with Polar White Flower Soft (New at Outlines!!!). The flower centers were made with Ultra Fine Citrus Crush Flower Soft.

Check out what the other girls made!
