Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers
Having fun with a House-Mouse Designs Stamp that I have had for years. This one is called 'O Lucky Day' with Mudpie the mouse. I have a special love for them since they were the first stamp I bought and enticed me to color and craft cards. Right now...it makes me smile and happy to see I have taken my crafting and love of making cards to another level with the blessing of God. What tickled my creativity for this card is a Theme challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends-No coloring image. Immediately I was tickled to join in with the thought I don't even have to color a stamped image to feature it on a card. For this particular card design I decided to use some fun with 3D Paper Piecing. It takes a little more time especially since I was going to need to fuzzy cut some of the flowers into individual pieces. I actually find it therapeutic for me as I put on some soothing and encouraging Praise and Worship music on as I do my fuzzy cutting. After I fuzzy cut needed pieces I also use my embossing tool to give them dimension.
I hope you try this 3D paper piecing style. I was introduced to it a couple years ago by Blog Hopping where I found this wonderful, amazing card maker Mariska van der Veer. Here Blog is called Sending You a Little Smile. I encourage you to visit her because her works are jaw-dropping gorgeous with all her intricate details. Mariska has a Tutorial tab on top of her blog that gives you instructions on how she does her 3D Paper Piecing. She has several but the one I used is on her Whiffs of Joy line and/or Here.
