Counterfeit Kit Paper Piecing Challenge, with a Tutorial Sneak Peek!

I WENT CARD MAKING CRAZY!

I am loving the Counterfeit Kit Challenge!  They have a paper piecing challenge going on right now, using our February kits, and I decided to make some cards for it.  I have a bunch of birthday's coming up and this was the perfect way to do the challenge and to use my kit!


 The first one is layered cardstock with different border punches by Martha Stewart...punched butterfies from flocked paper added more dimension.  Here is the inside...


Then there is this one...


The scalloped paper with holes in it was very white...I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.  The flourishes are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, then I colored over them with a glitter pen.  The butterflies are pieced with a McGill punch, and they have rhinestone bodies.  The flower is from the flocked paper, with my pebble center.  I stamped the sentiment and layered it with foam tape.

The inside...


Then this one...


I wanted balloons...so layered hearts served the purpose, and I edged them with the glitter pen.  I hand cut the "strings" and a bow finished these off.

The inside...


And, this one...


I used the same layering technique, but layered squares instead.  The center is two squares, one offset so that it created the cool shape, I used a bit of foam tape to make it pop, and another of my pebbles.


Inside this card I added a punched butterfly with the flocked paper and some rhinestones.

This one is not related to the paper piecing challenge...but I think it turned out gorgeous, it uses my February Counterfeit Challenge kit, and I am going to do a huge tutorial on how to make it tomorrow...


This card has four tags and the doilies from my kit that I glimmer misted and shaped into a flower.  I will post that tutorial tomorrow.  This turned out very cute!  My inspiration was the matchbook boxes that people are making, and a mini album I made last October...stay tuned!

I altered brochure envelopes for these cards, as they are all 6x6".  You can find my tutorial here on how to alter the envelopes.

Stay Crafty, My Friends!
