Stampalicious Challenge - Paper Piecing

It's time for another Totally Stampalicious Challenge - this weeks challenge is PAPER PIECING. I chose to use this cute Totally Stampalicious "Willameana" image and sentiment for my paper piecing.

We are getting ready for another release

Totally Stampalicious is having a Blog Hop

9 PM Eastern Time

I stamped the image three times. Twice onto water colour paper and once onto the "Amuse" checked designer paper. I coloured the Santa list on the bottom image and only her head on the other. Cut out the coloured head, and from the dp stamped image her headband and pj's. On the pj's I used a SU Regal Rose marker and a white gel pen to colour part of the collar and zipper and pockets, plus the headband was coloured with Regal Rose marker. I cut out a piece of dp for the floor and drew in some lines with a Prisma colour pencil crayon and smudge the lines to make it look like a hardwood floor. Willameana's head and pj's are popped up. I added the little flower rhinestones to her headband and to the little wooden Teddy bears belly. Added Fruit Punch Stickles her collar, pockets, headband and to the trees on the DP. The designer paper is from My Minds Eye - Colourful Christmas.

Below is a card I made for today's CAS sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. The mug and sentiment are from Totally Stampalicious's "Coffee Brawd" set. I paper pieced the mug, I stamped the sentiment onto Shrinky Dink and heated it in the oven. Cut out the mug with exacto knife, tied on the sentiment.

I hope you will come and join us over at Totally Stampalicious, make sure to check out what the other DT members have come up with to inspire you. If you do decide to play in the challenge - make sure to leave a link to you blog or online gallery on Mr. Linky.

I am also entering the first card on this post "Willameana" into the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge #C4C63 - to make a Christmas card or project....

Happy stamping and creating

Hugs.. Pat
