Paper Piecing with Whiff of Joy

***If you are interested in trying out for the Whimsy Stamps Design Team, please click HERE for more information....TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO APPLY!


Hi All and happy Friday!

We have a fun new challenge posted today on Stamp Something and it's an easy one with a super cute blog candy prize! This week we want to see your paper pieced somethings! And one lucky participant will receive a brand new Whiff of Joy stamp that Katharina has kindly donated as our sponsor this week! Head on over there now and check out all the details of the challenge and the beautiful creations by the design team.

For my card I wanted to use the color combo of green and purple so I grabbed my Wisteria paper pack from BasicGrey and then my image and started piecing!

I colored the non paper pieced areas of the image with my Copics and highlighted with a glitter and gel pen. The layout is from the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar. I used the cardstock colors of Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss, and Almost Amethyst from SU!. I distressed the edges of my paper with scissors to fit the challenge at Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from SU! short and sweet.

I embellished with Prima flowers, flower soft on the image, and a jumbo silver brad. I also added some stickles to the wings of this sweet angel. All the flowers fit this week's Whiff of Joy challenge. And lastly, this card fits the challenge at Cute Daisy May, which was friends. I plan to send this card to a friend today in fact.

OK, well, have a fabulous weekend. Hope you'll join us this week and play along with our Stamp Something Paper Pieced Somethings challenge! Happy Stamping!
