Stamp TV Alumni Blog Hop Paper Piecing

Carolina does a wonderful job of coming up with great ideas for our Blog Hops -- this time she asked us to do some paper piecing!  I LOVE paper piecing.  It gives such great dimension to scrapbook layouts or cards.   If you have come from  Jennie Harper's  blog -- then you are right on track.  If not you may want to go to Stamp TV and start at the beginning -- take a look at Gina's video -- you will get some fabulous technique ideas for paper piecing.

Ok, here is my card:

I used "Enjoy the Sunshine" stamp set.  This stamp set has a ton of images!  I also used the Melanie Muenchinger's  "A Year of Leaves" under the strawberries. 

Another reason I like paper piecing is that I get to use some of my pretty scraps that I just can't bear to throw away.  Now hop along to Karen Knegten's blog.  You will adore her card!

Thanks for looking at my card.

Have a HAPPY stamping day.
