Fun Crafting Hack – Use Your Scraps for Paper Piecing

by Lydia Evans

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday. Lydia here. Today, I'll be sharing with you how you can use up some of your patterned paper scraps by paper piecing stamped images.

I started with Charmed Stamp Set and some scraps from Summer Garden 6×6 Paper Pack. I stamped the image from the stamp set various times onto different portions of the patterned paper using Obsidian Pigment Ink. Once this was done, I fussy cut around all of the stamped images. I then stamped the image again onto a piece of white cardstock and again fussy cut around this, but I did leave a thin border around this to save a little time. When I had this image, I took the fussy-cut pieces and added them into place. I adhered the leaves and most of the flowers down flat but added foam tape to the large and small flowers to add a little interest.

To add a little texture, I added Sunkissed Enamel Dots from Warm & Cozy Enamel Dots to the flower centers. I just love how playful this makes the flowers look.

The patterned background is again from Summer Garden 6×6 Paper Pack and the sentiment is from Charmed Stamp Set.

To see how this card came together, please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

This Charmed set is still one of my favorites because of it’s versatility and I love what you created here. I love to paint the design or color with colored pencil, but this is a great idea. I can see using scraps pf background papers I’ve created as well! Thanks!
