Stamp Fairy Challenge - Paper Piecing

Happy Monday everyone! It's StampFairy challenge day! I find it fun to start the work week with the adorable images from StampFairy - they'll perk up any day but sometimes we just need a lift for Mondays - don't we?!!  We have a new challenge this week too - the focus is paper piecing and StampFairy images are so perfect for that technique.

For my card, I've chosen one of the adorable Kasi the cat images to paper piece. Here I've used papers from the Stampin Up "Woodland Walk" series. I've popped darling Kasi's head and yarn ball for dimension and also sponged around Kasi's body and face to better define the image on the DP. I also did the nose and inner ears on white cardstock and colored them with Copics first, then cut and glued them on the paper pieced image. It's that easy and I love the look of paper piecing - just a fun way to enhance your images and so easy with digi stamps.

We'd love to have you join us in the StampFairy challenge this week and it's simple to do. Just create a card or project with paper piecing and enter your creation at the StampFairy Challenge Blog. We will name three winners from the entries that use a StampFairy image from the Shop: 1st place receives 3 StampFairy images of your choice, 2nd place receives 2 images and 3rd place picks 1 image. Challenge entries with non-StampFairy images will be eligible for our Top Three Badge and will be entered into a monthly draw for a free StampFairy image.

Here's some of the new StampFairy releases to get you inspired - you'll find these in the StampFairy Shop and are perfect for paper piecing too!
