CSS Alumni Blog Hop: Paper Piecing

Hello my friends and welcome to another CSS Alumni Blog Hop, this time we are doing the Paper Piecing Technique! This technique is so much fun, if you have never tried it, you can check out this video that Gina made using this technique.
Now, if you have arrived from Cheri's blog, you are in the right place, if not please start from StampTV.

Yesterday, while doing yard work, my daughter was checking the garden and asked me if we could harvest some carrots and peas, and said go ahead, she harvested the peas (easy to do), but for the carrots she needed a little help, so I dug and  dug and got only the bigger ones, after that I made my projects using one of the newest releases "Garden Fresh"


Carrot Tag:
  • Die-cut a tag from Kraft Cardstock. Stamp carrots in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Stamp images onto patterned paper, cut them out and glue them on tag.
  • Stamp sentiment.
  • Ink all edges using Dry Marigold Distress Ink.
  • Embossed bottom part and add Tangerine Twine.
  • Add Baker's twine and tie tag on carrots.

Carrot Card:
  • Using Cricut Machine, cut carrot shape (twice) and leaves.
  • Stamp images on front piece.  Stamp images on patterned Paper and glue them to card. Ink all edges.
  • Emboss front of card.
  • Cut a small (1.5" x 1") tag using Cricut Machine. Stamp sentiment and ink all edges.
  • Score second piece, add scor-tape and adhere.
  • Tie on twine and add tag.
