I do think this is going to be my new favorite set! Look at the way these two cards have such a different presence but both using the same set and technique to make! I used the new set call Beautiful Day which will be available in the first TAC published Magalogue on Feb 1! It will have 48 pages of new product and new incentive sets too! Can't wait to see them. Here I used paper piecing for both of these cards but used a different paper line for each.
The first one I used Uptown Girl WIC trying to archive the look of love for Valentine's Day and the second I used Willoughby SWIC. They really do have a different feel due to the papers, colors and design! Oh, the versatility of stamping! I love it. Sorry the scans of my sets are not so great .... I have a lot to do and not much time to fiddle with them.
To paper piece, you stamp your image in the same color of ink on the foundation paper and on all of the papers you wish to add. I like to put double sided tape on the wrong side of the piecing papers before I cut them out to save time. Then cut out the papers you want to piece on to the image and attach them the foundation paper. It is a great way to get bold coloring without coloring! Blessings
