So today I've been working on a card for a challenge at Gina K's blog. The challenge was to choose your favorite video episode and create a project using that technique. You must use Gina K stamps. So my favorite video and technique was about paper piecing. I love this technique and use it often. So using paper piecing I created this card.
You can see I paper pieced the parasol with Basic Grey Indian Summer designer paper. I then cut the image out with Oval Nestabilities and embossed the oval.
The second set I used is called In Stitches by Tami Mayberry. The arch stitch is stamped in VersaColor Raspberry and I added Golden Rod Stickles to the ends of each stitch. The background designer paper is a burgundy color cut with Spellbinders Frameabilities Scalloped Edge Frame. I didn't use the entire frame. The second background paper is from Basic Grey Indian Summer and cut from the second frame in the same Spellbinders set.
This card also works for a couple other challenges:
- DRS Sketch challenge: I used their awesome sketch to make this card.
- Scrap Creations: Use Basic Grey and 3 embellishments
- Stamp and Create: Use stitching in your card
