    • Give Accents Dimension

      Design by Valerie Salmon

      Valerie's accents spring off the page with the help of adhesive foam. She designed the piecings to complement her stamps and pulled colors from her photos to create her pastel palette.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Font: Pea Lacey off the Internet. Stickers: Heidi Grace Designs. Stamps: Hero Arts (large flower petals), Technique Tuesday (vines), Autumn Leaves (egg stripes, flower centers, small flower petals), Office Max (date stamp). Ink: Ancient Page by Clearsnap. Brads: Making Memories. Gems: Heidi Swapp. Adhesive foam: Fiskars.

    • Add Piecings to a Card

      Design by Valerie Salmon

      For an oh-so-cute greeting, add pieced designs to a card. Valerie crafted an umbrella and centered it over a pretty paper background. Adhesive foam makes the umbrella pop off the card.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper, stickers: Heidi Grace Designs. Font: Fairy Princess from Two Peas in a Bucket. Stamps: Inkadinkado (pink umbrella pattern), Technique Tuesday (blue umbrella pattern), Fiskars (umbrella handle). Ink: Ancient Page by Clearsnap. Ribbon: May Arts. Decorative tape: Doodlebug Design. Gems: Heidi Swapp. Decorative-edge scissors, adhesive foam: Fiskars.

    • Add Darker Hues

      Design by Valerie Salmon

      Give your pieced designs subtle detail by stamping in a hue slightly darker than the paper of your piecings.

    • Make Your Own Patterned Paper

      Design by Valerie Salmon

      Stamp a design onto solid-color cardstock to create your own patterned paper. Cut your piecing from the all-you results.

    • Embellish Your Piecings

      Design by Valerie Salmon

      Add ribbon, gems, or any other embellishments to your stamped piecings for a fun look. Valerie's stamps added most of the decoration, but the subtle additions of a ribbon around the flowerpot and gems on the petals complete the adorable accent.
