Paper Piecing and a Special Discount!


Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to be a guest designer for Market Street Stamps. For my card today, I chose to use the adorable robot stamps, Robo Love and Robo Star.
I love to stamp on patterned paper and paper piece my images. I love the character it brings to the stamp.


I stamped the images onto a 4"x5" piece of Whisper White cardstock by Stampin Up.




I cut a cloud template from cardstock and used pigment ink and a sponge to create the sky background. It is okay to get ink on the image since I am going to paper piece the images. When sponging, I swipe the sponge away from the template, or use small swirls along the edge of the template. You may want to practice on scrap paper first.


When you are happy with the sky you may sponge the grass with pigment ink until you get the look you desire.







Stamp the images again onto the patterned papers of your choice. Cut and paste the patterned paper to the images. Embellish as desired. I used a SU punch for the red hearts and a white Sakura gel pen for the dots. Tied a little red bow from 1/8" grossgrain ribbon. I used a corner rounder on two opposite corners, layered it onto Real Red cardstock, and then onto a light gingham print card base.

I have a special 15% discount code that you may use at Market Street Stamps store. You may find it on my blog in the left sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure and visit often to see all the fun projects the new Design Team has in store for you.

Hugs and smiles, Janice
