Polka Dot Pieces
I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything except the new PTI release tomorrow night, but today I made a simple card for Betsy Veldman's paper piecing challenge. I had just watched Dawn McVey's video about how to cut out embellishments and decided to give the flowers in the In Bloom patterned paper a try at cutting them out. I don't have the In Bloom stamp set, so the smaller flowers in the patterned paper were what I had to work with. I started with kraft cardstock and stamped an outline polka dot basics grouping of dots in enchanted evening ink, I then used a hole puncher to punch out berry sorbet, ripe avocado and enchanted evening dots of both In bloom paper and the same colors of regular cardstock. I glued them into the dots with a quickie glue pen. I separated the colors with strips of enchanted evening cardstock. I cut out the two flower and one leaf images and popped them up with foam and embossed the sentiment with white detail powder. One little rhinestone finished the card off. See you all tomorrow night at the release party.
