Pam is hosting our challenge this week, and she has chosen a technique I use quite often...paper piecing. And since this is Breast Cancer Month, we've thrown in the option to use pink on your card.
Isn't that a cool graphic? The girls have really rocked the graphics for the blog, let me tell you! I was so excited when I heard that paper piecing was our challenge because I had just finished making 20 baby shower invitations for my nephew and his wife last weekend that I paper pieced. Here's my take on the challenge.This photo is somewhat washed out...it's much more colorful IRL. I used SU's new dp from their Holiday Mini catalog called Pawsitively Prints. The white mat was run through the cuttlebug using a Quick Kutz folder (I think!). I added star dust stickles to the carriage, too!
A tip for you when paper piecing: use your Xyron machine. Remember that sticker making machine that you HAD to have? Well dust it off and use it for paper piecing! I always use mine for this technique because I usually have small pieces cut out and putting glue or tape on them is so difficult. Running it through the Xyron makes it much easier!
