OCC Cut It Out Challenge....

This weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner is "Cut It Out". I was so excited to see this challenge..I immediately thought of paper piecing--it is one of my most favorite things to do, and it has been awhile since I pieced something together. I had inspiration for this card from Target---again! The cupcake on their card was a little different in design and they did not piece the bottom of the cupcake, it was left open to show the kraft color through. I added a little brown glitter for sparkle.
 Seeing this challenge reminded me of the first time I used the paper piecing technique. I was actually working at a stamp company. A group of us were working in the studio and Lori asked me to finish piecing the card she was working on. I said sure...not realizing that she left me to cut out the smallest pair of flip flops known to man kind, LOL!!! I swore I would never paper piece again, wrong :).

Stamps: PTI sentiment, Cupcake (can not remember...company is no longer in business though)
Paper: Kraft, Close to Cocoa, Patterned Paper )Hobby Lobby), Rose Red
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Misc: Ribbon, Brown Glitter

Eva, It's funny that you shared that story about Lori and paper piecing because I remember the first time I paper pieced. It was at Lori's and you both were doing it and I was like, "really? You cut all that out?" LOL.....now it's a favorite thing for me to do! I'm going to have to check out this challenge blog.....looks like some great challenges!
