This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is paper piecing. This is a fun technique that adds lot of pizzazz to your hand stamp cards, and it’s easy to do!
All you have to do is stamp your image on paper or cardstock, cut it out and add it to your project. You can keep it simple, or use a more detailed stamp, stamp it on different colors and/or patterns of paper and layer your heart out!
For my project I used the Chic Boutique stamp set and the Love Letter DSP to paper piece the dress forms. I used my Stamp-A-Ma–Jig to position the design on my form then stamped it with Versamark, Classic Black ink then heat embossed it Iridescent Ice Stampin‘ Emboss Powder. I love this powder because it adds just the right sparkle. I cut out the dress form images. I stamped three dress forms on a Very Vanilla Top Note Layer that has been altered to look like a square. I trimmed the Very Vanilla Top Note square layer by cutting along the perfed edge. It’ very easy to make this shape. Click here for tutorial on creating this fun shape and a circle. I die cut another shape in Riding Hood Red to layer behind the Very Vanilla. So easy! See below for card recipe.
