Default WT847 ~ Paper Piecing ~ June 3, 2021

Lisa here your hostess for this weeks Ways to Use It challenge.

I am pretty certain one of the first few techniques I learned was paper piecing. My best friend and I use to have pages of images we could create and we just needed to trace the shapes, cut, add some color and layer to create some super fun embellishments for our scrapbooks. Thankfully things have come a long way since those days. We have punches, die cuts, great open stamps to stamping shapes and cutting and some might even have Cricuts. Today's challenge is to paper piece.

Here are some fun tutorials that have some great paper piecing ideas:


Faux Diecut Inlay Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Starburst Background Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Paper Mosaic Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Digital Paper Piecing Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Bargello Technique Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Here is a link to our gallery: Paper Piecing

Here is my sample: WT847 Bee Smart by Shoe Girl - at Splitcoaststampers

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:

1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

We have amazing cards this week from the very talented team.

Just straightforward old-fashioned plain piecing from me, although I hope to get to a 3D project over the holiday weekend.

WT847 Happy

Be careful if you try digital - I had a piece jam inside my printer - expensive mistake!

Here 'tis: deer I'll have to try the technique again, as this one was so small that it's hard to see the effect!

Smile WT847 you bring sunshine

Thank you Lisa for the inspiration! For my card creation I went with a truck under a blue sky- a few clouds, but sunny! Put a layered fussy cut sun in the pickup bed, and added a golden "road" and a aqua blue top border. Used my watercolor pencils, then misted for a diffuse effect. Added yellow hubcaps for my truck. Here's you bring sunshine

I actually posted this card late yesterday but didn’t have a challenge category in which to add it. The golfers shirt is paper-pieced so I am adding it to this Ways To Use It Challenge.

Great ideas to try! And it only took me reading three tutorials before I finally realized that the topic was paper piecing, not piercing, as I had read it. Sure makes a lot more sense now!

Once I figured out we were piecing and not piercing, I got to make one of my favorite layouts. Starbursts are just plain happy! So little cake! by CardCountess at Splitcoaststampers
