DDH4 Challenge - Paper Piecing - Week 1

The Digi Design Challenge for this week is Paper Piecing.  This is a little more tricky with digital images than with rubber stamps because the printed or colored paper to be used for paper piecing has to be run through the printer so that the image can be printed on it.  Then it can be cut out and pieced on to the main printed image.

I chose the DDH stamp Quilt for my project.  It had so many different colored pieces that I ended up printing several times to get all the pieces covered.  But I am pleased with the outcome

I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder to make the background piece and then found a ribbon that had a similar swirl in it to tie around the cardstock piece.  The cardstock is Bazzill.  There was no coloring on this card since it is all  paper-pieced.

Be sure to check out all the DDH Dream Team Designer's blogs and see their creations. 
You can find them all listed at the DDH blog, so be sure to go there and you can also link your
paper piecing card to the blog for a chance to win a free DDH stamp set of
your choice.  And if you use a DDH image on your card, your name will
be entered twice in the drawing for a free stamp set. 

All the submissions would love to have you visit their blogs and leave
some love and comments for them there.  We do hope you will
play along and join the fun. 

Pin It!
