Hi Stampers,

Today I am sharing a technique I haven’t used in quite awhile.  An old friend of mine brought it to my attention.  She had just finished a whole series of paper pieced cards so I thought I would create one of my own.

The base card is Granny Apple Green followed by a piece of retired DSP.  In fact I used retired DSP for all of the pieces on the image.  I chose the image from Good Morning Magnolia.  It is easiest to paper piece a larger image.  I chose three different paper designs in the same color family.  I stamped the image on each of the papers and then fussy cut three different sections of the image. I then stamped the image on Whisper White CS with Memento Black ink.  I did sponge So Saffron on the background first.  I put the puzzle back together by laying the pieces over the stamped image.  I colored the stem with Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces to the image.  I absolutely love how this turned out.  I’ll be doing more of this soon.  It realy is a fun technique.  I hope you give it a try.

PAWS TO PONDER

Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
