It's My Turn for a Designer Choice Challenge at Repeat Impressions!

It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s my turn and I am challenging the other Rock Stars and you to use paper piecing on your card. Paper piecing is my favorite way of “coloring”- try it on a card and after you make your card, you can enter it for a chance to win some awesome Repeat Impressions rubber! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

I started this card with a kraft piece with rounded corners on a brown card base. I cut the blue cloudy dp apart, rounded the corners and attached with pop dots to raise. I stamped Repeat Impression’s hot air balloons on three different dps, put two sided tape on the back and then cut out just to the outside of the black lines. I have learned to make paper piecing easier, put the two sided tape on first, then cut out. Even on the smallest pieces, it will then easily stick to your card and you don’t have to worry about added any adhesive after cutting. I added the perfect sentiment from the same RI set to complete the card.
