Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #50 - Paper Piecing

Hello Friends!! Well it's Friday and it's that time again! What time? Well it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time! Can you believe it but there's only 6 more month until Christmas? I can't believe how quickly time has flown. It's almost 2011! LOL!

This week's challenge is a fun challenge! The challenge is "Paper Piecing". I love paper piecing. It just add something more to your stamped image. . .something you can't achieve through coloring. The results are so pretty.

Stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out all the pretty cards the design team created. The design team did a wonderful job with their paper piecing. Hope you'll play along this week!!

I decided to use my InStyle Stamps image. Isn't she a cutie or what?? Okay. . honestly, this card almost turned into a major disaster. Do you see the fluffy snow? Well I used Liquid Applique and I heat embossed it to give it the puffy look. Well. .. I thought it was dry and I sort of accidently smeared it on various parts of the card. I wanted to SCREAM. . .luckily, I found ways to fix the mess up!!

I colored my image with my Copic Markers, embossed the background with my CB embossing folders, rubbed a bit of white pigment ink to the embossed snowflakes, added Liquid Applique and Stickles to create the snow and paper pieced the Stampin Up designer paper to my image! That's about it!

Life has been so busy the past week. I'm so glad it's Friday! I can't wait for the weekend. Hopefully, I can catch up on life stuff. . .there's so many things to do! Chores, chores, chores. . .uggh. The bane of my existence!! Life would be perfect if only I had a maid. LOL!

Anyway. . .I'll shut up now. . .hope you all have a beautiful Friday!

Hey, this is a cute card - we'd never know about the screw ups if you didn't tell! I agree with having a maid.. then I'd only have minor chores ..
