Beautiful You- Miscellaneous Monday and Technique Tuesday

    Beautiful You is a very versatile stamp set.  There are 3 images and 8 sayings.  This week I want to show you many ways to use this set.  Monday's card shows 

a stamped image
a stamped saying 
Some color using our new water color pencils
Some sprinkles in the background made by tapping an aqua painter or marker on your finger
The ground made by brushing color along the bottom edge of the card.

 The technique for this week is called Paper Piecing.  It is simple and involves just two steps.

1. Stamp your chosen image on a piece of cardstock.

2. Stamp the same image on a piece of designer paper.

3. Cut out the hat and the dress from the designer paper, and glue them onto the same parts of the cardstock image.  You now have paper pieced a dress and hat onto the original design adding a bit of color.

Notice the stamped lace image.  That is one of the free stamp sets you can order from the Sale a Bration catalog.  It is called Delicate Details and can be used in so many ways.  In this card it just finishes off the card in a feminine way.

Sale a Bration continues through the end of March.  So, check out your wish list and find $50 worth of items and you can have Delicate Details as your free stamp set.

Come back tomorrow to see a WOW card made with the Beautiful You stamp set.
