Paper Piecing and Stamping

Good Afternoon Victorine Originals Fans!  I wanted to share with you this beautiful Iris stamp I made using one of our very own gorgeous stamps!  You can find it here: Victorine Originals.

I did a technique called Paper Piecing to make this card and I truly love how it turned out. This is what you will need:

  • White Cardstock
  • Black Cardstock
  • Oval Die
  • Oval die with Scalloped edges
  • A colored piece of cardstock for your stamped pieces , of your choosing
  • A matching piece of cardstock for your background
  • A piece of cardstock for your card base to match your colored pieces
  • Momento Black ink for to stamp your images
  • A Stamp of your choosing, from Victorine Originals

This is how I put it together.  although you can find  a few videos on You Tube also.

  • Take the white cardstock and stamp your images in a close arrangement.
  •  Take the regular oval die and position it so the stamps are somewhat hanging off the die so you will be cutting the images off.
  • Cut the scalloped black die and glue the white and black ovals together
  • Now take your pattern paper you want your stamps to be in and stamp your images on the pattern paper.
  • Fussy Cut your images out from the pattern paper.
  • Glue the fussy cut images over the white images in the oval , applying the glue on the white oval being careful not to go over the edge with the glue.  You want your image to hang over the scalloped black oval.
  • Then lay your matching colored background cardstock on your base cardstock and glue
  • I then pop dotted my ovals before I laid them on my base so my images would really stand out and you could see how they hang over the edge.

I really love this technique for stamping and hope you give it a try.  If you do, please share it with us at Victorine Originals.  We would love to see it!
