Hi there! I'm back today with a great little technique to use with outline stamps when you don't feel like colouring. This is Paper Piecing!
It's an effective technique…. simply stamp your image once on the base card and again on DSP, cardstock or other decorative paper (hey, you could even make your own with stamps and ink!). Trim the second piece carefully on – or just inside – the line, and adhere this to the base card.
I made a whole bunch of these last week to send to the demonstrators on our EurekaStampers team forum, and it was so much fun!!
Here is a brunette version of Tess.
And if you want to see how she was put together, here it is in just a few simple steps!
I added heels to this Tess 😉
And here is Tess's wardrobe. DD6 and I mixed and matched her outfits.
And some of the finished cards…
Tote-ally Tess is one of the stamp sets now available in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalouge in your choice of wood-mounted OR clear-mounted! If you are a customer of mine you should have received your own copy of the Mini by now – if not just email me and I'll pop one in the post for you.
And finally (phew, this is a long post!!) here's a close up of the tags which were punched out with the super cute new Jewelery Tag punch.
Check back over the weekend to have a look at some fabulous cards that I received from our team card swap. Soooo many great ideas!
Till then, happy stamping!
