Over The Moon Monday - Paper Piecing

Good morning and welcome to Over The Moon Monday here on the blog.  I hope you had a nice Easter. My hubby, who is the cook in the family, fixed a ham, lamb, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, green beans, crescent rolls, deviled eggs, and for dessert we had fresh strawberry shortcake.  Yummy!  I think I heard the table groan under the weight.  We shared it with my daughter and her family and her mother-in-law.  I don't think anyone went away from the table hungry.

Paper Piecing is so much fun, and today I want to share another one with you. The stamps are from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle. And as always, please share a link to your creation in the comment section.

I stamped the rabbit on white cardstock and colored in the parts that would be showing.  I stamped it again on the dotted patterned paper, and cut out the dress and the wagon. I used the same patterned paper for the mat.  Then I glued them to the stamped bunny.  You could also use double sided tape or xyron to attach the dress.

I also cut out the Catch A Falling Star stamp on the patterned paper that was adhered to cardstock (to give it support), then used pop dots to attach it to the background, which is contrasting patterned paper.  I sponged coral ink very sparingly around the edges of the white cardstock, then attached it to the dotted patterned paper and adhered to the background.

I used glitter goue for all the stars. I don't think it shows very well, but the background has some glitter also.

I used this card for a birthday card for my stepdaughter.  I was very pleased with the way it turned out.

Now that spring is here and the weather is turning nice for those of you who live in snow country, you will be able to get out of the house and enjoy the warm weather.  But don't forget to take some time for yourself and do something crafty.

Don't forget to share your creations with us. And be sure to watch the header area for a special one-day-only sale coming up soon.  Check back often so you won't miss it.

Thanks for your kind comments. I really liked the paper, and with the bunny stamp the paper piecing was easy. I'm all about easy.
