Paper Pieced Stamping

Welcome to the third edition of our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 11 of us highlighting the “Paper Piecing” Technique as shown on page 27 in the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses at the end of my post if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Sheila's Blog, you are on the right track!  This technique is highlighted with the Mayberry paper packet in the Idea Book but you will find variations for its’ use through this hop.  

 In my first layout, I chose to also use the Mayberry paper packet X7136B.  The quilted piece was perfect for stamping my little birds and nest on.  Using our stamp set Love You Forever C1398, I stamped the image 4 times...once on each different piece of the quilt pattern, making certain that my image was lined up on the corresponding quilt block.  Then, I cut them all out and "pieced" them back together on the layout....pretty stinkin' cute!!

Here is the detail of the stamped images once they were pieced back together.

In this layout I used the Mayberry paper packet again (I just love this paper...can you tell?).  For the stamped piecing parts I used the heart from the stamp set that is included in the Sweetheart Workshop On The Go G1017 and pieced together my flowers.

This is one of my very favorite stamp sets.  It is so versatile and can be used on so many other projects.  The stitched swirls can be bent and moved to create almost any to love acrylic stamps for that very reason!

To order any of the items used in these layouts visit my site here where you can shop any time!

Now please continue onto Michelle's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
