Paper Piecing Technique for the Totally Techniques Blog Hop


Paper piecing tutorial oceanfront stamp set with Count on Me

Welcome to the June Totally Techniques Blog Hop with international Stampin' Up! demonstrators across the globe.  We are sharing the Paper Piecing Technique this month and showing you how to paper piece and ideas for using the technique. 

For my card I've paper pieced this super cute bear from stamp set Count on Me to add swim shorts and a hat, inflatable, towel whatever you see it as. I drew on the goggles to make him swim ready. 
Start by stamping your image onto offcuts of DSP ( designer series paper/patterned paper).  If you have scraps of paper then you only need a piece big enough for the area of the image you want to use.  

In my case it was his bottom! 

You can then cut the image out with scissors and leave some of the outline as on this occasion it helps to have the outline.  Then cut the part of the image you actually want to use. As I wanted shorts I cut off his feet and part of his back.

I used the same process for the hat.  I also stamped the bear on white card so that I could colour him and then add the clothing.  I fussy cut out the whole image and also stamped the image onto my design to pick out some of the 'furry' sections.  Having left part of the outline, on the paper piecing it just highlights the outline and gives a little more depth.

Using the Oceanfront stamp set I created a beach scene and used masking paper to mask a sun and then used a blending brush to add colour through the mask I created.  

A simple sentiment from Art Gallery stamp set finished my design. Although it took a little time this is fundamentally a #SimpleStamping card with just stamps ink and paper. 

A card perfect for children or grownups and this summery time of year in the northern hemisphere.
