Paper Piecing


As soon as I soon this stamp from Woodware I knew it had to be paper pieced as well and while I had the papers out for the neutrals Less is More I might as well use this stamp as well. You could use pinks too and add some flowers. All I did was to stamp on three contrasting colours and cut the letters, not forgetting the holes in the letters. I use the Xyron X sticker thingy saves making a mess with glue and it sticks to the edges.
I did use a sharpie to make some matching doodling round the edge of the card and job was done another great simple idea to use for those pesky men.

  53. obviously like your website however you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will surely come back again.
