2 challenges, paper piecing, and Purple Onion Designs stamps

This week at CAS-ual Fridays we are to make a card using paper-piecing.


I used the Purple Onion Designs stamp called Cups of Joy:

CAS-ual Fridays #39

supplies: white cardstock, BoBunny Passion Fruit Dot, Buttercup Dot, and Mint Dot, POD Cups of Joy, Hero Arts CL497 Find Joy, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Memento markers

And at Jay Gee's Nook we have this wonderful photo inspiration:


Aren't these colors wonderful?  I was inspired in particular by the dotted turtles near the bottom right corner, and here is my take on the challenge, using another POD stamp called Heart Flower and the same BoBunny design papers:

Jay Gee's Nook #16

supplies: white card stock, BoBunny dot dps, Hero Arts CL184 Thoughtful Messages, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Martha Stewart butterfly punches
