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.

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.

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.
