All Occasion Card Using Ornate Frames for Sisterhood of Crafters

Paper Pieced All Occasion Card using Stampin' Up! Products

 

We have a fun new challenge for you over at Sisterhood of Crafters, “Paper Piecing” and is hosted by Sistah Diane. I have done this technique a few times with both stamps and dies. It’s so much fun! I went through my dies and found a die from Spellbinders that I thought would work and hadn’t used yet. Pairing it with a couple of stamp sets, Good Morning Magnolia and Butterfly Wishes, as well as keeping it with a soft, monochromatic color scheme really brought out the pretty details of this die. Did you notice the pretty frame around the sentiment? That’s a new die in the Holiday Catalog called Ornate Frames. You will find it on page 53 with Halloween products but I promise you that you will be using these all year round!

 

What is Paper Piecing?

Using a stamp:

1.  Stamp image on card stock

2. stamp image on patterned papers (as many as you need)

3. Cut images out from patterned papers, then adhere

patterned paper pieces over card stock.

OR

Die cut a die, with different colors of papers

and ‘piece’ colored pieces back in to make your scene or design.

My Secrets to Making This Project Using Ornate Frames

  • My big secret to make the paper piecing for this card easy is to use Glad Press ‘n Seal. Once you have cut the die with the background color and removed all of the bits and pieces, lay it down onto the Press ‘n Seal. Then, cut the die again, lay it over the first one and poke all of the little pieces into the spaces of the first one. Make sure you really rub the Press ‘n Seal over both of them! Finally, cover it with adhesive and adhere it to the backbround layer, then remove the Press ‘n Seal.
  • The sentiment was stamped and cut out with the new Ornate Frames dies from the Holiday Catalog. These are a “must-have”!
  • The butterfly from Butterfly Wishes was stamped and fussy cut.
  • The “flower” die from the retired Snowfall dies was cut.
  • Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (retired) and Mint Macaron Textile ribbon were adhered to the die panel, then a bow was tied with the Mint Macaron ribbon.
  • Very Vanilla cardstock was cut and embossed with the Scripty embossing folder for a subtle bit of texture. Then, everything was adhered to the Mint Macaron card base, and a few rhinestone were the finishing touch.

  4. I love the colours that you have used and the lovely dies. I use paper piecing a lot and I especially like to do it with large flowers when I put at least three layers on so the flower head is really raised up.
