Lovely Lattice with Pieced Flowers

Time for another Blog hop - this one featuring Sale-a-bration Products. This card was made with the Lovely Lattice Stamp set and features a fun coloring technique:  Paper Piecing.  I also have a tip to share on how to add sparkle to your stamped sentiment.

Card showcases paper piecing with Stampin'UP!'s Lovely Lattice Sale-a-bration Stamp Set.

This card looks so clean and fresh, perfect for spring. Given the fact that I live in Wisconsin and my driveway has 2 inches of ice from a freak storm last week and covered with 10 inches of snow and we're due for another half-foot today . . . I am ready for spring! But not too ready, because I want Sale-a-bration to last a little while longer.

For those readers who don't know about Sale-a-bration it is Stampin'Up!'s biggest sale of the year.  EACH qualifying merchandise purchase during Sale-a-bration earns you a free item from either the Sale-a-bration catalog or one of these 3 additional options from the 2nd release. The Lovely Lattice Stamp set is one of the FREE options.

Are you someone who likes to color? This set is perfect for you with the open flower imagery.  In the closeup above you can see that I did color some of the flowers and the leaves on the white card face.

You'll also notice on the larger flowers that I did some paper piecing.  Paper Piecing is a fun technique to add some dimension to a project.  Its super easy: 
  • Stamp the image on colored paper
  • Cut out with a scissors and glue onto the main project
Did you notice I used my markers on the colored paper too! I even colored the sentiment with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush - because you can never have too much sparkle, right?
