SOS #146: Pieces of April

Happy Tuesday! Before we announce our new challenge, we'd like to thank you for playing along with our Faux Sure challenge. Some of you stepped out of your comfort zones and tried something new. We hope you also put at least a teeny tiny dent in your stash, too. :)

This week's challenge is Pieces of April, and we'd like you to use paper piecing on your card. For those not familiar with paper piecing, you stamp a main image (an outline stamp; not solid image), then stamp it again on two or more pieces of paper (patterned or not), then fussy-cut the individual papers and put the pieces onto the main image. I know that makes no sense, so for pictures and a real tutorial, you can go here.

Here's what the gals have made to inspire you:


Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash (maybe your scrap bin, even), make a paper-pieced project, then come back here to link us up so we can see what you've made!

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, April 14th, at 11:55 pm. To be eligible for the Saturday Shout-out, please limit your total number of entries to 13, including ours.

I welcome this challenge as I truly really enjoy paper piecing and use it on many of my cards. I may "have to" (hee) add more than one card to this gallery. I like the creative DT cards. :)
