Shopping Our Stash #146: Pieces of April (Paper Piecing)

Hello friends and happy Tuesday to you all! We have a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH, which is paper piecing! Here is my card:

Here is the inside:

I'm so proud of myself. Except for the card base, all the papers I used were from the scrap bin! Yay me! My little bunny is paper pieced with two different pink papers and white cs. I even found the streamer that I had stamped/die cut a couple months ago in the "die-cuts-to-be-used-in-the-future" pile. (You have one of those piles, right?) I just manipulated the sentiment to follow the curve of the streamer then stamped it in green ink. After I finished the card, I kept looking at the bunny and thinking it needed more. (of course.) So I added the googly eyes. Much better! This bunny image should have a disclaimer on it that says that whenever used, it is mandatory to have googly eyes! LOL! Hey look at that, Paper Smooches is having another Sparks - Anything Goes challenge. (wink!)

So now it's your turn to get your paper piecing party on, (Try saying that three times fast. HA!), and link your project up at Shopping Our Stash! Please be sure to check out the fabulous creations that my teammates came up with for your viewing pleasure! Now go forth and get crafty!

  1. Haha, how adorable, Chris! Love that pink argyle bunny, and yes, the googly eyes totally makes it! Absolutely love the inside with the bunny popping up from the corner. And way to go using up some scraps. Yes, I have one of those waiting to be used die cut piles, too! Always feels like an accomplishment when you use something from it. :)

  2. pink argyle easter bunny??!?! YES PLEASE!!!!!! totally love this... and the inside is equally FAB! :)

  3. SUPER image for paper piecing!!! I love the PS critters!

  4. PS: Not only do I have a "die-cuts-to-be-used-in-the-future" pile. I might have more than one of them. *ahem*

  5. Who doesn't have a "die cuts to be used in the future" pile??? I have a drawer full! Kudos to you for actually using one (love that banner by the way!!) and for using up some design paper scraps. I think I am going to have to buy that stamp set...every time I see that bunny image I WANT him!!

  6. Super cute bunny. perfect paper piecing too. oh yes I was just going through a box of scraps, diecuts and coloured images and scraps too small to even use lol.

  7. My die cut pile is more like a giant die cut BOX! :D Googly eyes and pink argyle -- hard to beat! Such a cute card.

  8. The bunny is so cute! Love the googly eyes and the bunny peeking on the inside.

  9. I love how you've stamped him 'stalker bunny' style on the inside :) I think this might be my very favourite Paper Smooches stamp, actually. I mean, LOOK AT HIM! Plus, like Riley says - everyone enjoys googly eyes! Love him in the pink argyle :)

  10. Oh my gawd! He is too cool. I love his "dye job" so perfect for Easter and so perfect for a laugh. The googly eyes and Paper Smooches are always a winning combo.

  11. LOOOOOOOOOVE that little bunny on the inside-- I always forget to do the inside! LOL! LOVE this card:) THANKS so much for joining in the fun with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge;)

    Hope you play along with us this week for our Picture Perfect challenge <3
