Paper Piecing with Pretty Pumpkins for CASEing Coast to Coast

Welcome back to another cross country stamping adventure with Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA.  Karen came up with our technique today: paper piecing. She also came up with a super fun card to go along with it.  Take a look…

Karen’s senior couple certainly have a very stylish flair here!  You can check out all the details on Karen’s blog

and here’s my CASE (copy and selectively edit) of Karen’s card.

I used a different image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set and paper pieced it using a paisley design.  This paper came from my stash and I probably bought it at Hobby Lobby a long time ago.  I chose this pattern as I really like the “boho” vibe and pretty fall colors.

After stamping the pumpkin image on Very Vanilla card stock and cutting it out using the Detailed Pumpkins dies, I stamped it again on the patterned paper and fussy cut it to fit over the Very Vanilla image. The leaves were stamped with Old Olive card stock.  Before cutting them out, I embossed them with the Textured Textile 3D embossing folder for a little depth.  The stems were colored with a Soft Suede marker.

Before layering the pumpkins on a mat of Merry Merlot and Very Vanilla card stock which was embossed using the (retired) Tin Tile embossing folder, I wrapped a piece of Braided Burlap Trim (also retired) around both layers. Then glued it to the card base.

After gluing the pumpkins to the card, I added the sentiment which is from the   August 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Gift of Fall.  Lastly, I added a small linen thread bow. 

I created another card using the same patterned paper in Cajun Craze….

The inside sentiment is also from the same Paper Pumpkin kit.  I embellished the inside and the envelope flap using the Tin Tile embossing folder.

As you can see, I really used a mixed bag of products on this card.  I came to the realization that these are the cards I have the most fun creating!

If you haven’t already done so, please “coast” over to Karen’s blog and check out her fun card.  I hope you enjoyed this month’s CASEing Coast to Coast as much as Karen and I enjoyed creating it…be sure to come back soon!

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
