Um, yes! It's the second Tuesday of the month and we are almost halfway through this month's challenge
And this month's challenge is to PAPER PIECE. Paper piecing is one of my all-time FAVorite techniques and it's one I go to, again and again. It's perfect when I am creating away from home, because I don't have to worry if I brought the right marker, or pencil. And, best of all, I can use every little bitty SCRAP of my favorite papers.
Nancy Thomas created this terrific card, just paper piecing the cupcake from the "One Cupcake" stamp set. You don't need much of this technique to make a statement. Her card is bold and fun, and the small touches of patterned paper make it sing.
No one does Sock Monkeys like Wendy McGaffey. And her choice of paper is perfect for this little guy.
Now, check out Julie Masse's card. Lot's of pretty patterns, but the only item paper pieced is the tent. PLAID! I love it! And, what about the paper she chose and used with the "Holiday Toppers"? I love it, too!
Can you say "Sweet"? I'm sweet on Lori Tecler's card. Her coloring is just amazing. And, her cupcake is just yummy!
