Paper Piecing

Hi there! Jessica here with you today. I hope you are all having a great week. It is back to school week here for us, so things are a bit crazy. I have one starting 3rd grade this year and my middle baby is going to Kindergarten. Plus, we are going to a new school this year, so lots of changes for us. Hopefully my youngest can quickly adjust to being "alone" I am sure she will love the individual attention though.
Well today I wanted to share a card I made using some paper piecing. I think paper piecing is a great way to add some color to your images, and is kinda fun to cut out the tiny pieces in detail.I made this card using 2 of the awesome QKR Stampede images from the QKR Stampede Store. The flowers stamps is called Flower Bouquet. I also used the sentiment called Just a Note. I have gotten so much use out of this sentiment image. It is just so versatile. I did some paper piecing on the flowers. I pieced the leaves and the flower centers. The petals I colored with markers to go with the PP. And...a rarity for me...I decorated the inside!It is very simple, but I cut a couple of the flowers from the PP, and added them to the inside of my card. Now....moving on...tomorrow is our QKR Stampede DT Somethings Brewing Blog hop! The fun starts right here! Join us as the hop goes live at 8am Friday (9/10) morning.
