Paper Piecing Tutorial

Good Morning
for today's masculine card from 2007 we are back to Stamping Bella and this cool dude is called beerafella. If you take a close look at his shirt and shorts you'll notice a pattern on them. The technique I used here is called paper piecing and is super simple to do.

He is a quick tutorial for how I made this card....
  1. I stamped beerafella on to 3.5" x 2.25" white card stock
  2. then stamped him on to a blue & red patterned paper
  3. then cut out the shirt on the blue paper and the shorts on the red paper
  4. and coloured in the belt on the shorts with a black felt 
  5. then designed card front 
  6. and attached the white card stock with first stamped image to it
  7. and coloured in desired areas on the white card stock with twinkling h2o's
  8. then attached the shirt and shorts with dimensional tape to pop it off the page
  9. and viola....
...and with the leftover pieces on the patterned paper you can make another card but with a red top and blue shorts. 

    Have a great day
