DTBST # 169 - Paper Piecing

Hey y'all, and happy Thursday!  You know what that means....a new Sassy Studio Designs Dare to Be Sassy Thursday challenge!  Woo hoo!

This week the challenge is:

Paper Piecing

I think you all know what that means.  Just in case you're not sure, it means that instead of coloring part of your stamp, you should stamp it on a different paper, fussy cut it out and adhere it on top of your stamp.

I used the fabulous Evanora from last weekend's image release.  I just couldn't resist those feathers!  What's that, you ask?  Why, YES, of COURSE she's available in the store!  =D  I paper pieced her dress and cape, and colored her body, hair, feathers and gems using Copics and Stickles.  The papers are primarily from Stampin' Up, except the pink half circles, which are from DCWV's Sweet Stack.  Gems are from Archiver's, I can't remember the company.  (They've been in my stash forever, but the're my favorite kind of gems! They're smooth instead of faceted, so they seem to glow.  Awesome!)  The corner punch is from Martha Stewart.  I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it says "Have a FABULOUS Easter, dahling!"

Ready to play along?  Head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs Blog to see what the other Sassy Sisters came up with and to link up your cards.  Remember, if you use a SSD image you get to enter your creation TWICE!  That's another chance at winning an awesome prize. I hope to see you participating!

I typed out a looong msg to you last week & the darn think completely disappeared when i hit submit, typical : ) I can't believe your little man is 3months old already,I bet you can't either-lol. How is work going?? I'm sure by now you have your routine down, you must to find time for cards. I get kind of antsy when I dont make cards for a couple days-lol. Just didn't want you to think I forgot about you...I try to peek every couple days at your blog. Give that little Bear of yours some snuggle from me : )
