So...how many of you long-time stampers remember what it was like to enter your very first challenge? I do! It was a challenging experience, for sure! I remember my hand shaking when I finally
pushed the button to submit! Took a deep breath...

Well. In all these years of papercrafting, teaching my own workshops, submitting for publication, etc., I've been terrified to submit a card of mine to the Our Daily Bread Designs challenges. Seriously terrified!
Friends, there is some phenomenal talent over there on that DT, and I almost (ALMOST!!!) had to take up drinking to make myself step up to the plate. Anyhoo......took a deep breath! Above is my card for the ODBD 'Wing It' challenge. It's in the mail to a friend at church.
Next up, I have two ladies who have requested a photo tutorial on paper piecing. Believe it or not, I had just stamped an image, and was getting ready to do a tutorial, when I saw that the challenge this week at Great Impressions Stamps Blog, was to use a Great Impressions tutorial. I am using paper piecing! Mynn has a wonderful tutorial on the GI blog, if you need to check out another one.
|1. Stamp your image on cardstock panel. 2. Stamp image on fun papers. 3. Cut out the section to be paper pieced.|
|Decorate your paper pieced panels if desired. I colored mine a bit with some markers. I also colored my spools with markers.|
|Adhere the paper pieces to the stamped image.|
This card needed a very special hand written note inside, so there is no sentiment stamped on the front. Love, love, LOVE Great Impression stamps!
Hope you all have a great day!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
