Paper Pieced Tulip Card




Hi crafters!  I love the flower square dies and that there are so many beautiful ways to use them!  Paper piecing is one of my favourite ways and these are just perfect for it too!









The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. This collection of dies including the festive one's are so useful to have in our collection due to the fact you have many ways of using them and paper piecing is just one of them and one that's quick and easy (even with weird fingers) lol so I look forward to watching the pro at work and hopefully get back to crafting when the weather cools off. Whatever the plans for your day hope you have a lovely one xxx

I always think that the finished technique of paper piercing looks like it's been quilted or slightly padded and looks great.

Morning Sue, "small is beautiful " and this is one lovely card. I am a real paper piecing junkie and love your flower dies which are so versatile. Put together they can make larger cards or smaller ones/note lets, on their own, so you've catered for all tastes.
Pouring down here, so hopefully it will cool down now. Maybe a crafting day after all. Enjoy your weekends everyone. Hugs xx Pauline

Hi Sue
Love this card, perhaps it’s because tulips are my favourite flowers or perhaps it’s beca I love your flower squares. Have had great fun paper piecing your poinsettia one for my Christmas card makes.

Love and hugs to everyone

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I just love that background die and keeping the background relatively simple in black and white really makes the colours of the flower pop.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card and after studying it very carefully when you launched this die I made my version of it when I received my dies. What I have learnt today is your trick of using coloured card as a base for the pixies and the colours you used so thank you for the video and I think I must re-create my earlier card for a friend's upcoming birthday with this in mind.
