Paper pieced balloon

It's the weekend!
Here's another for my bear-mad friend.
There's a group of us a Tonbridge Lacemakers,
that celebrate birthdays, and I volunteered to make the cards. 


I did that fiddly 'out-of-the-die' thing,
except this was only a tiny bit out, and not that well executed.
In order to fit my bear in the oval, I cut around the tip of the balloon,
so it went over the cutty bit of the die.
I'm sure there's some expert videos out there!

I then decided to paper piece a decoupaged balloon,
so might just as well not bothered really!
Hey ho it was fun trying, and practice for when I do another?!

Love that ribbon, and added a few flowers n rhinestones,
plus touch of winkofstella on balloon.

Haven't been to Happy Little Stampers for a while,
so seeyalater!


Have a good one

  1. Hi Lesley, that's a really cute bear card. I love the background paper and the balloon looks really good. I like paper piecing. I've done the out of the die thing with mixed results. Barbxx
