I had alot of fun making additional Paper Piecing Cards using Honeycomb Hello this past weekend. You may remember the cute little chicks from my last post, but I also wanted to show my Stamp Club ladies some additional samples in case they liked them better. It gave them some ideas on how valuable the set might be (beyond a baby chick) and a few of them created the balloon card simply to avoid cutting out the chick! But I was reminded how fun it is to paper piece.
For the Ice Cream card, I used Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, and Tip Top Taupe on the scoops. The cone is colored with a Blender Pen and Soft Suede Ink.
For the Balloon cards, I colored the ribbon image with a gold marker, and then added the Gold 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon on top of the “Happy Birthday” card. I wasn’t sure if I liked the ribbon or not, so I left it off of the “Hang in There” version.
All of the sayings on these cards were embossed with Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder. Supplies are shown below.
- Whisper White Base: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky Layer: 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Whisper White Top Layer” 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Small scraps needed for the paper piecing
