Family Challenge #7 - Paper Piecing

Once again Nina has tossed us another fabulous challenge, based on the following tutorial:

And here’s my take on that:



Designer Paper - Blank Canvas by Kristin Cronin Barrow


Stamp - Jar by Dear Lizzy

Stamp - Bo Bunny, Sentiments

assorted punched hearts and pearl accents

pearlescent paints

embossing powder

Ok, so I fully confess I wanted to cheat and fit my trusty Cameo in here somewhere but I resisted and look it turned out just anyhow.  How cool is that? 


I stamped the jar image onto the card itself, then stamped it again onto a scrap of music -themed designer paper.  I cut the lid apart from the jar. Then I stamped the tiny hearts all into the jar.  I coloured up the jar and lid with a wash of pearlescent paints.  Then, I embossed both with a transparent powder.  Now I used double sided foam tape to raise the lid and jar, but I also spaced it enough away from the top of the jar that I was able to glue the top of the “glass” part down to the paper, to give it a more 3d look. 


Lastly adding the cardstock layer behind the sentiment adn affixing the pearl and winding it all up with a teensy bow made with crochet cotton. 

Hope you enjoyed your visit and suggesting you might hop over to my sister Nina’s blog and my SIL Judy’s blog too to get their take on today’s challenge.
