Simply Paperpieced :D

Good morning Sassy girls! I'm here to bring you a little inspiration on this, the last day of the weekend. Why do the weekends go by so fast eh? I would love some more card-making time of a week, but unfortunately that won't pay the bills so it's back to work we go tomorrow ;o). But for now, I hope you enjoy what I've made for you today!

For my card today I have used Star Dust, and this adorable Sassy is available from Funky Kits HERE. Like with all the Simply Sassy stamps, this one too can be used for many occasions! I have chosen to put her on a Stair Step Card, there are many different variations on this card, and this is one of my faves :D.

As I don't have all the Copic colours (yet ;o)) I couldn't match the reddish pink in the paper so I paperpieced a lot of her clothes. A huge thanks goes to whoever first came up with the brilliant paperpiecing idea, which ensures that you can always have the perfect colour combinations on a card :D!

I haven't used a lot of embellishments, it's not my style for one and for another, these cards aren't huge so I think there's quite enough on there already ;o). I will decorate the inside as well though, that'll be just the finishing touch it needs I reckon!

Materials used:

Stamps: Simply Sassy "Star Dust"; sentiment from Papertrey Ink; Stempelglede
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock cream; Kaisercraft design paper "English Rose"
Embellishments: Zva Creative pearl swirls; Kaisercraft pearls
Tools: EK Success Retro Flower Punches; Magnolia Doohickey border die
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks)
E49, E47 (hair)
E41 (gloves, socks, stars)
YG95 (eyes, leaves)

That's all from me, hope you get some nice crafty time today as well, see you soon!

  8. I love those flowers of yours with the pearls - & the patterned decoration is stunning. The paper piecing is so pretty with her & this is a real stunner with the way you have done the layering. I like the way the sentiment panel sits on top when the card is flattened too.
