BasicGrey Challenges # 31...Paper Piecing....Sorry!!!
Hey! Hope you are all well and had a productive week! I am sure you are happy to see the weekend though! Well, I know I'm ready for the weekend and a crafty challenge! How about you?! Well, you are in luck because we have another great challenge for you at BasicGrey Challenges! One that is an all time favourite of many of us! This week we would like you to try your hand at paper piecing!!!! Remember to use at least one BasicGrey product on your creation and to have FUN!!!!! The having FUN part is mandatory,lol!!!
For my card this week I made a 4.5X6 cardbase from Bazzill basics cardstock and used 6x6 pad of BG pp Eva and Lilykate! The colours combo was inspired by the yummy ribbon that I got at Micheals on sale this week... just love this plaid and the colours! So, I stamped Tilda on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock and coloured her hair, skin and tag with my Copics and then I stamped her again on the Eva floral patterned paper and cut out the parts for her dress and hair bow and then stamped her again on the purple pp from Eva and cut out her socks!
Well, After all that cutting I realized...well, actually I have known for a while now that I need new pair of micro tip scissors! I did look around the shops to see if I could find this Fiskars Scissor sharpener but no luck! So I bought a new pair EK Success Honey Bee scissors with my coupon a t Michelas! I have heard good things about these scissors so I am looking forward to putting them to work!!!
I added a few Prima flowers, dollar store paper roses, a some Qk swirls and flourishes and lots of Stickles for a little extra bling! The sentiment is from All That Scraps and is the CC Designs Sugarplum Sentiments set!
So, there you have it! I hope you have time to play along with us this week at BasicGrey Challenges!!! Also, be sure to go to the BasicGrey Challenges blog and visit all the BG DT ladies! Their cards are just outstanding and sure to inspire you to join us!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!!!
