Totally Papercrafts ,,,, Paper Piecing Challenge

Good Morning :-) Thanks to everyone who joined in with our Christmas Punch challenge last week :-) This week it is Sarah's turn to choose the theme and she chose ...


We are sponsored by Sew Many Cards and the winner will get to choose 5 fabulous images :-)

I used my lovely new Penny Black stamp ,, cute eh !! This one is called Wise Wishes . I coloured with Copics and paper pieced the little gift,, I know it is only a tiny bit, but it is there :-) I used Basic Grey Joyial papers and I paper pieced the gift from the sample bits on the front cover. I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used a Martha Stewart border punch and Snowflake punch I added Art Institute ultrafine crystal glitter to his hat trim and along the branches to make it look icy, if you have never used Art Institute glitter you should try it, I think it is much better and more sparkly than any other I have tried. I also added Star Dust Stickles around the edges.
