Paper Piecing in Your Card Making

Paper Piecing in Your Card Making -

Would you like to take your designs up a notch?  Try integrating a little bit of paper piecing in your card making.  It's such a small thing, but it sure can make a huge impact.

I created this card for a friend who is struggling with some serious medical issues right now.  I hope you don't have friends or family facing the same issues, but if you do you're in my thoughts, too.

Here I used one of the stamps from In The Moment.  This set is perfect for using your Stampin' Blends, Watercolor Pencils, or whatever your preferred coloring tools are.  I used Stampin' Blends here.

To do the paper piecing I also stamped portions of the stamp on a few patterns from the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper collection.  Then I used my Paper Snips to cut out the pajamas and pillows. 

After coloring the image I glued the pajamas (or what I imagined to be pajamas) and the pillows over the corresponding area.  They blend right in, don't you think?

I decided before starting this card project that I was going to use the new In Colors on it.  I didn't think about the color palette more after that, but once finished it occurred to me I could have made the circle a moon color.  Oh, well, next time I guess.

If you'd like to see some other ways to use paper piecing in your card making, here's a handmade sympathy card with another interesting paper piecing technique.  Check it out!
