Simon Says........Going Dotty!


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is a favorite of mine, "Going Dotty!"  And the DT are all playing with fun Stamping Bella goodies.  You don't have to use them to enter, but if you do have any of their products, we'd love to see what you do with them!

I have 2 StampingBella sets now and love using them - they are perfect for paper-piecing!

supplies: white,pink, and Bristol cardstock, BoBunny periwinkle double dot and an unknown lime dot patterned papers, StampingBella Isabelle Loves Ice Cream, colored with Zig markers and a colored pencil (her shoes and flower in her hair), sentiment from a retired Flourishes stamp set, Simon's Scallop Stitches Border and Blueprints 20 scalloped rectangle dies, fine black pen for doodling border

I've used my favorite periwinkle color to paper-piece her dress, coloring the rest of the image with markers and pencil.  I doodled a border after trimming the panel, then framed it in a pink to match the ice cream.  For my backing papers, I used scalloped dies to mimic the lace on her dress.

Here's my 2nd card, keeping it simpler this time:

supplies: white and surf blue cardstock, Doodlebug Dot Rainbow Petite Prints dp, Stamping Bella Lolly and her Brolly, sentiment from Newton's Nook Spring Showers, markers to color, tumbled glass distress ink and a finger dauber to color background, punched hearts

Last time I used this stamp, I paper-pieced her in yellows, but I'm loving this fun mini dot green this time!  To go along with the sentiment I chose, I covered the raindrops on the stamp with little punched hearts.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

You are the Queen of Fussy Cutting, always do such intricate cutting but it looks more like you colored the dress and coat/boots. Your work is amazing.

Awesome paper piecing on both cards! I like the second one a bit more because I prefer the more simple design. But the blue you used on the first on is such a pretty color too, so it wasn't easy to decide.

Your paper piecing looks wonderful and I love the colors! Great images on both cards with great designs as well! Everybody polka :)
