YIPPEE!!! I’m really enjoying these Fun Friday posts! So much inspiration and fun tid bits of info! Every week I ask the YNS DT to share some fun tips that either are random fun facts or tips that go along with there project. If you haven’t noticed already my wonderful team of ladies are not only talented but quite a humorous bunch sooooo with that said…
It’s freezing here in Ontario and snow is everywhere so I thought it would be appropriate to start off this Fun Friday post with Jenny Peterson’s lovely snowy day tip…she emails me and says…”don’t eat yellow snow” LOL I know we’ve all heard that one before but you can’t tell me you didn’t just laugh or smirk at the comment…FUN! that’s what today is all about!
My tip for you today…be sure to visit all of the DT blogs for additional information regarding their fabulous projects and amazing stamping tips!!!
Alrightly, let’s get started!!!!
I’d like to make a very special announcement!!!!
We have a new DT member!!!! Woot! Woot!
Please help me welcome Veronica Zalis to the YNS family!!! So glad to have you joining us Veronica! She made this super sweet valentine card featuring the stamp You Make My Heart Soar! Be sure to visit her blog to give her a warm welcome to the YNS DT!!!
Jenny Peterson created this sweet card featuring Flower Fhiona and her hot tip is about paper piecing! She is the paper piecing QUEEN and she even gave me some info to share with you…
‘Paper-piecing is a great way to add personality to your stamped image. You can use this technique to tie in your designer paper used on the card, to assist with staying in the same colour palette if your collection of markers, pencils, etc is limited, or if you aren’t confident in your colouring skills but like to use the kinds of stamps that require colouring! You can even take stamps that aren’t specific to certain occasions and just through paper-piecing you can turn a regular stamp into a seasonal image (ie. use Christmas DP for the clothes of a non-seasonal YNS Ellie or Fhiona, and viola- a Christmas girl!). And paper-piecing isn’t just limited to clothes or accessories- Push the norms and try using it on different elements of the image! For my card, not only did I piece her dress (typical), I paper-pieced Fhiona’s hair with a wood grain DP! And check out the leaves- they are pieced too! Give paper-piecing a try…the possibilities are endless!!’
Be sure to stop by her blog for more tips on paper piecing!!!
