Paper Piercing with Meadow Cottage Bears and Giveaway Friday!

Sharing more  Meadow Cottage Bears!   They are just so darn adorable! :o)  Yesterday, Stacy made a lovely easel card using the Happy Birthday set. This image is part of the With Love set.   Here's a quick way to produce a card that makes people think you spent all day.  I'm using the paper piercing technique.

First, I picked out several coordinating design papers. Stamped the bear on Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers and also on coordinating papers.

Next, I cut out the pieces and colored the roses with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  I also colored a few spots on the design paper.

To adhere the pieces, I used a liquid glue.  It allows  a little more time for getting the pieces into place.

Now it's time for GIVEAWAY FRIDAY!!

This week we are giving away this very same adorable, newly released Meadow Cottage Bears EZMount Stamp Set - With Love.

Wow this is such a great way of produce a card. But What I love about this tip is that you can use the other piece to make another card. So your scraps aren't going to waste. I like to use and keep all my scraps. Awesome card and great stamp. TFS & TC2W AJ~

Usually when doing paper piecing the fussy cut pieces are put on by a dimensional adhesive. I really like this idea of making it flush with the card. So much easier than coloring it as a whole and trying not to go over into other parts. LOVE this stamp set!
