Paper Piecing at MMM

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Make My Monday. This week our hostess is the lovely Fliss who would like to see:
Paper Piecing
here's mine: All you need is love and a garden to make a home.....  :))

Paperbag Studio: News Print House
Basic Grey Paper Pad:  Stella Ruby
Hobby Craft sentiment: All you need is love
Oxford Impressions: Jane's Garden: the word garden.
Cartridge Paper
 Versafine: Onyx Black
 Adirondack: Cranberry

Newspaper house has been  paper pieced from the paper pad and raised on foam pads then adhered to  thick cartridge paper which was mounted onto the backing paper also with foam pads.
I cut round some of the petals of the flower to the right of the house and placed  the  image square behind the petals. The rest of the flowers were cut from a second page of the same design

Here's a few more I played with...
Main image from Chocolate Baroque, I can't remember where the little stylised rose is from,  I've had it forever but this is the first time I've used it. Both roses paper pieced with DP from Papermania, Rose Garden.  This card is for a very dear ex colleque... xx
 I don't like the way this one turned out
 I like News Print House just not the card :(

 It started life like the one below... actually that's a fib! I got a big black smudge  on the original, which was all in the pale script paper so I chopped it off and put the blue paper on the inside... I didn't like it... I still don't now it's altered.. lol! but I like to show you warts n' all 
 Hope you can join us this week I'd love to see how you go about Paper Piecing! Pop across to MMM.
to see the fabulous inspiration provided by the DT.  It would be lovely if you could visit each of the DT's blogs and say hello.
 Thank you for looking and commenting, it gives me such an enjoyable boost.

Suzi I have to say, I like all of them, even the one you don't like.... we are always our own worst critics I think.... I am never quite sure what paper piecing is, I shall have to check it out. All I can say is that your cards look great!

Christine B. said...

Hi Suzi, Really like your cards, have to admit I like the first two best. Have a good day hugs x ChrisB

You have been busy with the paper piecing - love the house and garden one - nice words too. Sometimes what we make just won't seem to come right or at least in our eyes but good of you to share your 'mishap' - looks OK to me from here!!

Jacqueline said...

Hi Suzi - love all your paper pieced pieces - looks like you enjoyed this one! - Jacqueline xx

Just gorgeous Suzi. I really love the paper pieced house and the whole card is a stunner.
I don't know what you were worried about either!
Hugs, Fliss xx
