A Krafty Old Bit of Paper Piecing :)


Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.

It’s another cold one here today and it has been snowing earlier but nothing has really stuck.

Anyway, without further ado, let’s nip across the pond and join our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is

Paper Piecing

The DT are using products from Lily Bee this week -  you don't have to of course, but if you have them we would love to see them :)

As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

… for one lucky winner to spend …

… right here :)

So ….

.. here’s what I did.

I did the kraft card thing again – love love love kraft card – and kept it fairly simple.

The papers are from the Lily Bee Head Over Heels paper pad I used them to paper piece the flower from a Hero Arts Clear Stamps To and From Petals stamp set (the leaves are also from that set).

The centre circle was made using one of the stamps from the Hero Arts Clear Stamps Many Dots set

A sweet little rolled rose made with paper from the Lily Bee paper pack plus a bit of string that was handy :)

There’s only one thing better than a bit of Tilda Lace and that’s three lots of it  - and all of it inked :))))

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Clear Stamps Live and Laugh stamp set.

I do quite like simple cards, even though they are sometimes a bit more tricky to make.

Right well that’s me off for today. Don't forget that there is my gorgeous giveaway which is open until next Tuesday – you can see it here if you haven't yet entered.

You gotta be innit to winnit!!!!

Just before I go (Colombo mode yet again lol),  I get quite a few emails asking about the way I do my pics so I thought it might be an idea if I do a little bit of a tutorial – keep watching and I’ll get onto it asap – hope that will help.

See you soon as soon sweet peeps and stay warm and safe.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
