Paper Piecing at Saturated Canary

Hi everyone, I'm here today with my card for the new challenge at Saturated Canary, this time we want to see your cards with images that have been paper pieced. This is something I have wanted to try for ages, methinks I'll be doing it again, it's great for little scraps of DP you have laying around.

I've coloured Bella in with my reinkers, somehow I've managed to line up her skates, but make her wonky when I've cut her out. I've paper pieced her top and tights using paper from Maja Designs 6x6 Vintage Summer Basics papers. Sparkle has been added with glamour dust and shabby white frantage.

There is a list of products that I've used at the end, just click on the picture to go direct to the shop.

I have shaded the pieces that I've cut out with black soot ink.



  1. Hi Sweetie! oOoh she is just absolutely GORGEOUS as always! Your paper piecing is so FABULOUS .. I can never seem to cut things out for the life of me! lol .. it ends up missing parts and pieces! lol! You have done a STUNNING job of this! I love it!

    ps .. yayyy! So happy that we're on another team together! Actually every single team I'm on .. we're together! :) I'm a lucky girl! :)

    Sending Big Hugs,
