Welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! This is Cindy’s last challenge for the month and this week she’s challenging us to paper piece. I looooooooooove to paper piece :)
I’m using a set that MFT will be releasing on May 1 at 10pm: Claire Keay - You A-mews Me. Isn’t it adorable??? Being it’s a cat, you know I love it!
I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper and again on the patterned paper. I love this cat spotted paper! Then I cut the patterned paper out and adhered it. When I was cutting it out, I cut out the ear triangles and colored them with Copic markers on the base image. I stamped the image a third time to get just the nose, which I colored and cut out, then adhered to the patterned paper layer to add just a bit more dimension.
Then I cut the entire thing out with my soon to be released Die-namics Rectangle STAX dies. I used one from each set to get a nice mat. I stamped the sentiment from the set and then added the horizontal element, with edges created with another die to be released on May 1: Die-namics Mini Scalloped Edge.
Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
