My card today highlights our Pretty Pattern Paper Tutorialswhich teaches you ways of using that gorgeous DSP you have sitting in your cupboards or on your shelves waiting to be used.
As this lovely stamp set “Hey, Girl” is retiring at the end of the month, I thought I would share a card I created a couple of weeks ago featuring the Technique “Paper Piecing“.
I also wanted to share with you one of my more popular pins using the same lovely set, again using the “PaperPiecing” Technique, along with lots of colouring. You can find the Free Tutorialfor this card by clicking on the highlighted link.
For today’s card I Paper Pierced the top & skirt while I coloured her hair, skin, bows & shoes with a Blender Pen & Crumb Cake & Rose Red Inks.

I just love this gorgeous little Stamp Set. Fantastic for so many techniques. On our card, we played with the Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, paper Pierced & Freehand.
My card today is one we created in my Friday’s volunteer class yesterday. We decided to take a much earned break from the Christmas Cards.
I had a number of kids in the class as it is school holidays in Qld & they usually like to come along, so I like to aim the cards at them. Mind you, the ladies love creating them too.
For my card, I used both the Blender Pen & Aqua Painter along with Markers & Inks. I will warn you that if you are using both, please be a little patient in the colouring. This way you are guaranteed to end up with a lovely result.
I started off by casing the card on Page 44 of the Catalogue but as I went along, it sort of developed a mind of it’s own, so I just went with the flow. I especially love how the footpath developed. I bet if I tried to do it again, it wouldn’t happen.
I also love how her eyes have lit up at the site of the Butterfly landing on her hand. The DSP I used has long since retired, but worked perfectly with the image. You could change it out to a more current DSP.
As you can see, I carried the footpath onto the card inside.
