My first try at paper piecing


I don't know if just cutting out one piece counts as paper piecing, but it's more than just stamping. I won the stamp set free from Gina K. It's called Retro Boutique. All of the paper is Stampin' Up! (Groovy Guava and Whisper White cardstock, Groovy Guava Designer Paper). I first stamped the dress on the Whisper White in Stampin' Up!'s Basic Black ink. Then I stamped the dress again on the Groovy Guava Designer Paper and cut it out. Cutting around that hangar was a bugger! I didn't cut all the lacy fringe on the bottom. I also used the Word Window punch from Stampin' Up! for the sentiment.

I really like how quickly this card came together with all of the Stampin' Up! designer paper. And I picked the pattern for the dress and background, then used the back side for the other layer. The SU! designer paper is double-sided, so there's a lot of designs.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! except for the dress and sentiment.

And to boot....Gina K. herself commented below!  My job here is done....hehe!
