Technique Tuesday #30

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this weeks Technique Tuesday. In these posts I share a technique that can be applied to many forms of paper crafting ~ card making, scrapbooking, albums and tags. I alternate Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tip just to change things up a bit.

This week’s technique: PAPER PIECING.

Paper piecing is a technique that allows you to get more out of your stamped images. It can add a lot of different textures and patterns if you want to do more than just color the images you have stamped.

You will need: card stock, stamps/coordinating dies, inks, markers, patterned or solid paper, scissors, adhesive. *Additional supplies may include adhesive and whatever embellishments/extras needed to complete the intended design.

Stamp the images on white card stock and on other paper. I used a small portion of a foil sheet to make the tool heads look like metal.

Color the portions of the stamped images that won’t be paper pieced.

Use the coordinating dies to cut out or fussy cut by hand the stamped images. If hand cutting, cut fairly close to the stamp line. *Please note: I used an alcohol wipe to clean the ink off the tool heads after they were cut out.

Adhere the extra cut images to the stamped pieces. This is paper piecing!

I really seem to struggle with creating masculine cards but I’m pleased with how this card turned out 🙂

Hints:

* Any stamped images that are going to be colored with markers or water coloring should be stamped with a permanent ink. Let dry thoroughly or heat set before cutting out. This will reduce smearing and smudging.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks technique. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. See you next time!
