Hi guys, I’m back with a card that uses an oldie but goody, stamping technique…paper piecing!  When I first started making cards, I really loved the look of paper piecing.  Now I find I use paper piecing all the time and love the results!  For my card I used Ships Ahoy & Die Combo (I followed THIS tutorial for my step card).

As you can see, the tugboat has paper piecing.  I used Rainbow Brights PP and stamped the smaller portion of the tugboat onto it and cut it out.  Once cut out, I simply adhered it over the stamped image.

TIP – Using stamps that have images with straight lines or smooth curves make it easier to cut out.

You can see how a little bit of pattern paper can make the image pop!

I did the same for the sailboat…see the green sails?  Paper piecing is such an easy and fun way to change how your images look.  Do you like to paper piece too?
