VIDEO: SBC August Hop! // Paper Piecing Card Creations

August 26, 2017

Hello fellow crafters and welcome back. This is a very exciting Saturday since it is time for another Scrapbook Blessings Club Hop! This month we are sponsored by Dare 2b Artzy! They have so many different stamp sets and you should definitely check them out. I'm featuring their hot air balloon set on my project today. Be sure to check out the other design team member's projects too! Plus, don't forget to enter the giveaway on YouTube!

This card uses the paper piecing technique to create fun dimension. Whenever I paper piece, I tend to stick with one simple color scheme, but mix patterns together. This card features patterns from KI Memories. I also experimented with some dimension in my paper piecing. I explain this further in the video, but it adds so much detail to a card. Enjoy the video tutorial below and don't forget to hop along and enter the giveaway!

I think that the glitter embossed background also adds a subtle theme to the card. It is almost a more mature hot air balloon card instead of a childish/whimsical version. The pom-pom adds a little bit of the whimsical feel back, but I like how fun it is! I used gold glitter embossing powder from WOW! to highlight these beautiful clouds. The burgundy cardstock with the gold and mustard yellow compliment well.

Paper piecing is an oldie, but goodie technique that is often forgotten about. I highly encourage you to give it a try with some of your stamps! I hope you enjoyed all of the projects created by the SBC team! Thanks for stopping by!
