Weekly Trends - Paper Piecing

Kim here with my first solo post as one of the new Trendsetters!  

For this week's trend, I chose paper piecing which is one of my favorite techniques to do.  It's like playing "dress up" with your images!  I decided use one of my favorite TSG stamp sets.....Puppy Love to show you this technique.  

I stamped the image in Momento tuexedo black ink and colored all but her dress with my copics. I chose patterned paper that I wanted to use for her dress and stamped the image again onto the patterned paper.  As Karen Giron would say, I then "fussy cut" just the dress from the patterned paper. 

Then I simply glue the dress into place.  I like to use Diamond Glaze.

And here is my finished card:

It's always fun to do paper piecing on clothing, but try doing it on something like a flower image, a lamp shade, an umbrella, etc.  The possibilities are endless!  

Thanks for stopping by!
