Paper Piecing with Lawn Fawn


Challenge #4 at Lawnscaping Challenge is to do some paper piecing on your card or project. I decided to ink up another Lawn Fawn set--Sew Lovely--that I've been hoarding for a while and used the same set of papers as on this card since there were leftover scraps.

After paper piecing the dress form, I decided to do a button banner but just now realize that those are HUGE buttons that look more like dinner plates? Hmmm.....




The "stars" in the background were made them with the asterisk (*) symbol from Harold's ABCs and Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream ink. How's that for getting the most from your stamps?







Hope you're having a sunny weekend! Thanks, always, for stopping by.


Stamps: All Lawn Fawn
Cardstock: Hero Arts kraft
Paper: Making Memories
Ink: Versafine, Papertrey Ink
Other: Pinking edge scissors, twine, pop dots, pearls, white colored pencil
Finished card size is 4.25" square
