I’m a Paper Piecing Fool!

LOL!  Well, not exactly, but I have a paper pieced fool to show you!

The Moxie Fab World blog is having a paper piecing challenge to celebrate the “Stamp It” techniques magazine.  Of course I thought of the Starving Artistamps stamp set  “Antidepresstamps ~ Royality"!”

*BTW—there is a special at Starving Artistamps through March 17th!  Check out the home page for details.*

fool for you sm

On the jester, I used colored pencils to add detail and dimension to the pieces.  The edges of the flags and other elements were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Card details:

  • Size- 5.5” x 5.5”
  • Stamps: Antidepresstamps~Royalty from Starving Artistamps;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black (sentiment and outlines of Jester and flags; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain and Brushed Corduroy;
  • Patterned Paper: Sweet Nectar die cut card pad and tag pad by K & Co.;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Accessories: Colored pencils, Wire, Foam tape, Stickles (glitter glue)

There are many other fabulous examples on the paper piecing challenge post at the Moxie Fab World blog!!  Take a gander!

As always, thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today!

What have I been up to?

Just making a few cards!  All of these cards use stamps from Rubbernecker Stamp Company!



  • Stamps: Sentiment from Garden Phrase Set (SKU:508); Butterfly Inchies (SKU:427) and Bud Tree Set (SKU:505) all from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned paper: Memory Box;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Concord Grape and Vintage Photo;
  • Liquid Pearls and Stickles;
  • Foam Tape
  • Martha Stewart punch

The dots on the branch were accented with Liquid Pearls and Stickles.  The butterfly was inked first with Concord Grape then then the edges of the top of the wings were inked with Vintage Photo. (just an easy way to get a multicolored image)




  • Stamps: Sentiment from Fall Trilogy Set (SKU:480); and Create a Garden Set 2 (SKU:513) both from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (plaid) and 7 Gypsies;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, and Frayed Burlap (for inking the edges);
  • Spellbinders dies
  • twill tape and brad

The “blossoms” on the wildflower were inked first with Wild Honey; then I blotted the edges on a scrap paper; then inked the entire image with Scattered Straw.  This method (a revised Rock ‘n Roll technique) made a blended image with just a touch of dimension.


blessed are those


  • Stamps: Ethel With Shopping Cart (SKU:74-01) and Laugh at themselves (SKU:504-20) both from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned paper: K & Company;
  • Watercolor paper;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black; Tim Holtz Distress Ink for water coloring;
  • Martha Stewart Punch;
  • staple;


I hope you enjoyed this selection of cards!
