TLT - Pami's Challenge - Paper Piecing

Happy TLT's so great to be back!! Well, we actually haven't been away but back to normal IYKWIM lol. The summer...if you want to call it that...has been a wash out. Yesterday was just didn't stop raining until dinner

Enough of my whining...I hope you all had a great summer and are ready to roll up your sleeves and get back into crafting big time! The Summer Fun Challenge was a hit with a lot of you and your entries were fabulicious. Make sure you check out the Challenge Blog to see if you were the winner of the overall challenge (£10 spend in the LCI store), winner using an LCI image (£10 spend in the LCI store) or a Top 3 (winner of a badge lol)

This fortnight's challenge has been chosen by our super talented Ladybug Pam. She has chosen one of my favourite things to do....Paper Piecing! The first image that came to mind was Nikki Walking With Buttercup. This is what I came up with...

I stamped NRWB onto white cs then stamped her again twice on 2 different Nitwits Mr and Mrs digital pp. I coloured in everything but Nikki's coat, scarf and gloves and Buttercup's scarf then cut these out of the pp and glued them onto the stamped image. I then cut her out with my Nesties and stitched her onto a fancy mount (think it might be called Eyelet Circle??) 

I added LOTS of Glamour Dust for mega sparkle

Closeup of Nikki's Jacket, scarf and gloves. I added nailheads for buttons

Buttercup's scarf

Really gorgeous Kerry! Love that felt snowflake!

Marianne said...

Gorgeous card, Kerry. Love the colour combo and all that sparkle, and that felt snowflake looks sooo fabulous and soft. Love the paper piecing too, including Buttercup's cute scarf.
I really intended to play along last month, but it always seemed like there was enough time left... Hmmm, sounds like a recurring theme, since I'm always thinking I have plenty of time to create birthday cards or Christmas cards for that matter LOL.
