A Few more Cards...

I was checking out all the PTI designer's blogs (as I do everyday :)) and Betsy Veldman the cutest card ever that she paper pieced. I love everything she makes. It was published in the new PaperCrafts Magazine. She says that paper piecing is one of her favorite techniques. Well it just so happens that it is one of my favorites too! Thought I'd share a few cards that I made recently..

I don't even remember who this was for but it was in my camera. lol. I love PTI's cupcake stamp set and use it on almost every birthday card. I also just got Big and Bold Wishes and have been using that quite a bit also. The little birdie is from Hero Arts. I paper pieced the cupcake and bird with papers from K&Co and Basic Grey. The tail is just colored with Copics.

I made this next one for my daughters friend. I used Basic Grey stamp and paper. and PTI Polka Dot Basics and Around and About Sentiments. Used twine to hold the balloon that I just cut out of card stock. I paper pieced his hair and clothes then covered him and stamped the polka dots.

This one I used another Hero Arts stamp. And PTI card stock and ribbon. I colored it in Copics and added some jewels to the tree.This is my favorite. I made this for my daughter's House Mom at the sorority house. I used K&Co papers and just cut out a house. The stamps are Hero Arts (squirrel, bird, tree)And on the inside, I used PTI's Big and Bold WishesAnd my next favorite is this one that I made for her House Cook. It's a Hero Arts stamp, paper pieced and colored with Copics.(I cut out the apron and pockets) The base is more K & Co paper. (Cut and Paste stack) Here is the inside..This card is for my other daughters best friend that love monkeys. Used the same K & Co pad. I also used PTI card stock and the Cupcake Collection and Big and Bold Wishes again. The paper pieced monkeys were from a stamp set that I picked up from Target during the summer.And last but not least, here is a card that I copied completely from one made by the super talented Dawn McVey. (I only changed the colors and tried to do everything else exactly) I really like how it turned out. Oh..on her card she used Friends til the end paper and I didn't have any so I stamped some. and Dawn sewed on the ribbon but my machine broke so I stapled. haha almost exactly! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow!! What fabulous cards, Colleen! You've been busy! I really love the quirky little guy holding the balloon - he is too cute. And that apron is so adorable...I love aprons, especially bright colorful ones (as long as I'm just looking at them and not cooking in them..ha!) Thanks for playing along!
