Paper Piecing

I love paper piecing! Isn't the little mouse super cute in her paperpieced ensemble? I love it! It may look difficult but it's really not. All you have to do is stamp your image on your base paper and then stamp it again on patterned paper. Cut out what you want to paper piece and then glue it to your base! Now, Heather taught me a great little short cut for those super small pieces. Stamp your image on the patterned paper and then put doublestick tape on the back of the image before you cut it out. Then, you can cut out your paper pieced parts and they'll be ready to stick to your paper - no fuss, no muss! Thanks, Heather, for the super tip! card parts: TAC Stamps: Have a Mice Day and Just Because; Cardstock/Paper: Kraft, Black, White Ultrasmooth, Winterberry; Ink: Palette Noir; Other: Pink and Black Scrapper's Floss, Cloud Scissors, Giga Scalloped Square Punch, Pop-it Pop Dots

*edit: Barb F. caught that I forgot to list something in my card "recipe." yep, it's the champagne dazzle versamark and aged ornaments stamped behind the sentiment. love the sparkly versamark!!!

Happy Stamping!
