Have you ever paper pieced a lemon?
Paper Piecing is one of my favorite stamping techniques, but I usually use it with a whimsical stamp rather than a realistic one.
I like how it turned out with this A Happy Everything stamp set. By the way… this is one of the Free Sale-a-bration choices, as is the paper used, the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper.
This card was inspired by the Mojo Monday 378 Sketch.
I changed the circle shape into an oval shape since it fit my stamp better, and I chose to not back the card with another layer.
(I love the love of clean cards so I will more often remove a layer than add a layer.)
To make this card, first stamp the lemon on Whisper White and cut out with the Oval Framelits.
Then, stamp the lemon two more times, on two different pieces of paper from the Best Day Ever DSP.
Next, cut out the lemon from the Crushed Curry DSP and the leaves from the Coastal Cabana piece and layer them on the original stamped image.
Hexagon Punch Tip:
Use this punch for making nice flag ends for your banners!
This was a fun card to make. Here are a few more cards using the Paper Piecing Technique:(click on the titles to see the original posts)
What stamps do you own that would work well with this paper piecing technique?
