Piecing my Mr & Mrs Snowman together!

Hi dear Blogger!

It is a dull day here in Scotland today, but a fantastic excuse not to do gardening and stay inside to craft!!!!  I had a fab weekend so far! I am still helping my friend with the Lazer Cutting Machine to build up stock for a few big shows later this year, well saying that the 1st is only 4 weeks away, wow the time does fly when you do have fun!

Well it is again time for another monthly technique across at and this month it is
Paper Piecing

I loved it so much I even created my back ground with the same paper as 
what I used to do my paper piecing on my stamps and 
created a quilt blanket effect.

This  Months Technique Challenge across at!!! 

Just a reminder that this challenge lasts until 14 October

The monthly challenge at SweetStamps Challenges is focused on techniques and will run from the 15th of the current month to the 14 of the next month.

You have a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on lovely nice 
goodies at the

You get an extra chance to win when you use a SweetStamps image on your creation.

**All of these techniques and more can be found on the TUTORIALS page of our website**  

Well here is my take  on it!

I used a plain white card stock and made a 6 X 6 card
I made my background  like a patchwork quilt with the squares
all measuring 3.5 cm and used the papers that I used
to do the Paper Piecing on my image
I layered it with plain red card stock

for my image I used the Mr & Mrs Snow Duo 207K from
The DP papers I used is from Wild Rose Studio - Traditional Christmas
I made the broom stick from a Tooth Pick and Butchers Twine 
I added a bit of blink to both for buttons
I used 2 Spellbinders dies, the Grand Scalloped Oval and the Small Scalloped Oval
I used Distressed ink for the background

Here is my list I used from

Well I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and hope I could be of some 
inspiration to you!
