KKS145-Paper Piecing

Hey everyone, and welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge!! This week, I am the challenge hostess, and I have challenged everyone to make a card using paper piecing!! I love to paper piece, and I really wanted to see what all my teammates can do....can you say WOW???!!! 

For my card, I used Lola Lollipop so she will be this week's prize!! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and some MME The Sweetest Thing Honey paper. I paper pieced her skirt, and then colored the rest of her with my Copics. She was layered with Bubblegum, Steel Grey, and Black Licorice cardstock. My ribbon is Black Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and I used the Notched Border Die-namics as well. My brads are from Michael's, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express. 

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out the Kraftin Kimmie blog to see more of my teammates creations!!!

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my a la mode Big Birthday Wishes on X-Press It blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. I then paper pieced her shirt, and cut her out using the Oval Stax Die-namics. My image was then layered with Fossil cardstock. I also used Bubblegum, Blu Raspberry, and Sweet Tooth for my card. My sentiment was placed on one of the Fishtail Banner Die-namics, and tied to my Bubblegum bow with Hemp Cord. To finish, I added some flowers using the new Flower Medley Die-namics. The paper I used on my card is the MME The Sweetest Thing Lavender pad. 

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies. I also stamped an image in the bottom corner, and used another sentiment from this set.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
