Paper Piecing Technique from My Cute Stamps

Hi! I’m excited to be with you today as a guest blogger on the CK Blog!

Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques in paper crafting. It’s simple, and it’s a beautiful way to add color and texture to your project.

I created a two-page spread of my daughter’s dance recital. I wanted the flowers on my page to pop with vibrant colors so I decided to use the paper piecing technique.

First, using some cute clear stamps, I stamped the flowers, butterflies, and scalloped borders on to various lightly patterned papers.

Next, I cut each flower out. This part took a while, but not much longer than it would if I had chosen to color in each flower using markers or colored pencils.

Then, I glued the various pieces together to give the flowers some dimension & color.

Finally I added rhinestones and placed my flowers, butterflies, and scallop borders on my layout.

I used the stamp set, Ella’s Flowers from My Cute Stamps for the flowers and butterflies. The scalloped border was made using a stamp from the Celebrate Chandelier stamp set. The paper used in this layout is from O’Scrap.

You can enter to win the Ella’s Flowers stamp set by leaving a comment below telling us about a layout you want to add paper piecing to. One lucky winner will be chosen!

Good luck and happy paper piecing!

    Love your layout…so adorable! I’d add the paper piecing to my great neice’s mini album. I started it when she was born and this next week she’ll be a year old…I have plenty of pages left in the book for photos as she grows.

    This idea is sooo cute! My husband brings me flowers every couple of days, such a sweetheart, only my flowers are in pots for the garden… he just started work at a garden center. I still love getting the flowers even though it means work for me too! I would love to win these stamps for my garden pages, I’m gonna have alot by the end of this season!

    I would like to use the paper piecing on a layout about the inner beauty within my parents as I was growing up. Unfortunately, i didn’t appreciate their inner beauty during my teenage years as I should have.

    Oh my gosh, I don’t know. I would like to try paper-piecing with these stamps. I think I would do a layout with kitten pictures from when my cats were little babies. Or I would do one with a picture of my mom and me. Thank you for sharing. Great layouts! And thank you for the chance to win! I don’t have any stamps from this company, but I have heard good things about them.
