Friday Mashup #146

Good Morning Stampers!! Today is Friday. Yeah!!! That means another challenge from The Friday Mashup. Now I first want to say, I loved, loved, loved this challenge. It was a challenge for me. 3D paper piecing is something I have never done before. I also loved this challenge because I actually go to "create" instead of just putting together a quick card.

Here's Today's challenge:

You can see Mariska's Tutorial on the 3-D paper Piecing Technique fromSplitcoaststampers here

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Soft Sky & Marina Mist."
  2. Create a project using "3-D Paper Piecing"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "3-D Paper Piecing Project with the above Colors."

Here's my card:

So for starters, I would really recommend that you watch the video link provided on this challenge. I found it very helpful. Second, I realized when I went to make this card, that I don't have very many "outline" stamps. I bought this one because I fell in love with it when I saw it.

Now the purpose of this challenge is to make your image 3D. It's hard to tell from the angle of the picture, but the tutu itself is 3 layers deep. Don't let the detail of my card intimidate you. Head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the others have done as well.

Happy Stamping!


  1. Wowzers Lynda! The detail on your ballerina’s tutu is fabulous and you did a great job at paper piecing your whole ballerina. I really like your card!

  2. Love it, Lynda! So glad to hear that that challenge got you 'creating' instead of just 'making'. I felt like that as well. Great idea added the dimension to the tutu.

  3. I noticed the depth of your tutu right away, you did a fantastic job!
