Paper Piecing for Happy Little Stampers

It's time for another challenge at 


Here's the challenge

I have a love/hate relationship with Decorative Paper.

I love to buy it.

Hate to use it.

So I dipped into my hoard  stash and found some Fall colored papers.

It didn't hurt at all.

and we have a fantastic Guest Designer too

This is beautiful. That stamp just lends itself to paper piecing. The colours are perfect for autumn Hugs Mrs A.

The dsp you chose is perfect for this flower--beautiful! Also, Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Rachel Jolley said...

Oh this is so lovely! I adore patterned paper too and used to be just like you, buying it but loathing to use it! Not any more, I enjoy using it up...so that I can buy some more lol!

JosieD said...

What a great use for designer paper. I go through the same thing -- buy because I like it but never know an interesting way to use it....now I do! Thanks as always for another great idea and good looking sample of success....

Faith A said...

Love your paper piecing, such pretty colours and papers and of course the finished result.

JoAnn said...

Beautiful paper-pieced flower. Love your card.

Susan said...

I'm exactly like you, Bonnie, when it comes to dp - love/hate relationship sums it right up! I made a goal this year to make one card a week using up some of my stash - but didn't manage to stick to it! So I might need to cull some more! Or try lots of paper piecing - not a technique I do very often, but I sure do like your results so must give it a try. You chose such a perfect paper for your gorgeous autumn flower!

Oh Bonnie, what a lovely image, so patiently fussy cut and pieced together, just so beautiful.
Now, about DSP.....I think like you, I love some of the designs but sometimes the images on both sides are so beautiful that I HATE condemning one side to eternal obscurity so, I don't buy it, if I by decorative paper IT MUST BE ONE SIDED, PERIOD!!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful card

Sandy said...

Beautifully made Bonnie!

Good job using that DSP, Bonnie. Your petals made up of flowered paper is nothing short of genius and I love the scoring, too! This card just sings!! Hugs, Darnell

Barb Ghig said...

Beautiful patterned papers and I love your CAS design! You did a great job paper piecing the flower, too! Stunning card, Bonnie...as always! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at ATSM!

Nance E Salkeld said...

THis is beautiful, Bonnie! It looks like fabric pieces! Happy Sunday! Go my SU box too! ;)

Toni said...

LOL, you crack me up! I'm a paper hoarder too but hate to use it mainly, I think, because I find it hard to incorporate into a CAS card. Too many possibilities! Your card is perfection--love how the embossing created a layered effect

This is beautiful paper piecing Bonnie and I love the papers you have used and the little twine bow and sentiment finish it so prettily. The embossed lines are so elegant too. x

Greta said...

Incredibly beautiful job of paper piecing! Love this card, Bonnie!

Neets B said...

I'm with you Bonnie, have a fair amount of patterned paper but very rarely use it. I must try this more often when I seek out good stamps for the technique. Your flower and stem look great paper pieced, love the scoring detail too. Thanks for also linking up at ATSM x

Bobby said...

I think this is darling, Bonnie. Very country/rustic, and I mean that in a good way.
