TSMONDAY, Paper Piecing!

Hello and Happy Monday! This is my card for today's Totally Stampalicious Challenge, paper piecing! When I was first introduced to stamping, like many it was Stampin Up, and looking through the book & seeing things cut out I thought...I'll never do that! ha I actually love it...I know crazy!

This is Let it Snow Stella! I stamped her onto vanilla neenah and coloured with copics. Don't ya just love her plaid coat, boots & hat! I used Basic Grey's Jovial pad for the plaid and the hmmm is it cream, yellow...not sure but I used it for the coat trim, muff, hat & scarf!

So when I first had this idea I thought it was going to look much better! I do love Stella, but I'm not totally thrilled with the background! I used the swirl frame embossing folder and embossed the poppy parade, then I went over the raised bits with a black sparkly sakura gelly roll pen...it does look better is you see the glitter.

The main middle panel is popped up, and I covered the little embossed stars with vanilla snowflakes!

So if you can play along that would be great, just upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog! There's usually a prize for a randomly drawn winner, and if you play, you may also win the chance to be the next Guest Designer!

BLOG HOP ALERT: This Thursday November 18, join the Totally Stampalicious Blog Hop at 9 pm. Look for 4 new fantastic sets being released!
