Paper Piecing and the Colour Yellow!

Saturday, June 13th, 2020

Happy Saturday!! It’s Laurie here to share a card featuring the Main Squeeze Stamp set and co-ordinating dies from MFT. I decided to do a technique that I haven’t done in ages..paper piecing! If you’ve never done this before, it’s super fun! It can be a bit time consuming depending on the images but well worth the effort!

I started by stamping all the images I wanted to use onto white cardstock as well as patterned paper. For the patterned paper, I used the Woodgrain Whimsy paper pad, also from MFT.

After trimming around each of the images that were stamped on the patterned paper, I went around each piece with a black marker to get rid of the white edges. To add a bit more shading to the images, I used some Gina K Inks in co-ordinating colours and a sponge dauber. I added some ink just around the edges.

Now, it’s as easy as gluing each fussy cut portion onto the white cardstock image. I used Gina K Connect Glue for this. I then used the co-ordinating dies to cut each image out.

For the background, I used Transclucent Gloss Embossing Paste along with the Scattered Florals Stencil from Taylored Expressions. I added this to the top right corner of a piece of white cardstock. After it dry, I lightly blended a blue ink over top. This panel measures 3.25 X 5.

I used a combination of liquid glue and foam adhesive to add the leaves and the lemons. I ended up placing the main panel onto a piece of the light yellow patterned paper I used for one of the lemons. This whole piece was adhered to an ivory, top fold card base.

And as per usual, I forgot to stamp the sentiment! Luckily, it worked out okay! To finish, I added a few clear sequins from my stash as well a covered the lemons in Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen.

I made this card with the prompt from our current monthly challenge on our FB Page which is “Yellow”. I hope you’ll check our page and play along!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
