Paper Pieced Poinsettia Stained Glass Window

Hi Bloggers.

A bit of paper piecing for you today -

I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Poinsettia Stained Glass Window Die out of Black Card, Coconut White Card, Antique Gold Pearl Card, Rich Red Card and Rich Green Card - I kept the waste from each one using strips of Scotch Removable Tape on the back of the die after cutting and then using my Spellbinders Tool 'n One to push the waste out of the die and onto the tape.

I put a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto some Coconut White Card, peeled away the other backing sheet and popped it on the back of my die cut. I then added my pieces from my waste collections. Once completed, I filled in my background with CS Silver Chrome Polished Silk Glitter.

I matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card, then Rich Red Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I potentially have 4 more cards that I can make from my die cuts and waste - watch this space to see if they appear on this blog 😊

  5. Hi Julia
    A beautiful card. I've used this die in the same way as today's card, paper pieced and glitered. It is my favourite die from this year's festive release. Paper piecing can be such a satisfying technique.

  6. Hee hee! I love this technique and will be making some cards with this technique and die
    It's made me smile because you can vouch that I got into a little bit of a pickle trying the various ways of "trapping" the waste I definitely prefer this method of using Scotch tape It's a fabulous card

  7. Good Morning Julia .. A WOW card this morning, So stunning. I love how you have paper pieced and a great idea with the tape. Will keep look out if you make any more cards from waste.

  13. Hello Julia, this is just stunning, love the traditional colours, it looks beautiful. I need to get some of the scotch tape as I tried with another brand and it did not quite work. Hope you have a good day. Bx
