Paper piecing


If you haven't caught on yet...I adore paper piecing  !!

Little Claire Dinkies are fab for this technique, just makes them MORE super cute !!

For my first card I have used "Balancing Act"

 Cut loads of small squares of matching papers to make my background and loads more faux stitching. Did I mention I adore faux stitching !!....Then paper pieced my Balancing Act with the same papers.

For the second card I have used "Branch Owls"

This time I made a moon background with blue distress ink and then stamped my owls on top and paper pieced and yes more faux stitching !!

Both my cards are 5" x 5" which is a nice size to work with.

Go on..why not give paper piecing a go, it's very relaxing and your sure to find a Little Claire stamp you'll love !!

Wow these are so bright and fun. I love paper piecing but don't do it enough. That patchwork background is fab, I love faux stitching too and often do it. Thanks for some great inspiration this morning
