Trio of Delight

With this card I wanted to remind people that sentiments can be just as fun as images. So often we use sentiments for their original intent. Today I wanted to illustrate how much fun they can be to make your own DP.
The green card stock is stamped in versamark, with Elzybells sentiment one of those days. I love it. It is such a fun one as it makes the reader turn the card round and round to read it. Real cute, and real graphic.
Next on the tag, I used the same sentiment only stamped it in green, then layered a second sentiment on top. Don't you just love this effect?
Finally note Elzy herself, if you look closely you will see her pillow and blanket have been paper pieced. Paper piecing, is just stamping your image on DP, and cutting out the section you want in the pattern, then you adhere it to the rest of you coloured image. In this case I stamped it on 2 different DP's , as well as once on white.
This really helps those of you who hate to colour achieve wonderful images. Not to mention it really helps to tie in the DP on the rest of the card.

I hope you have a chance to give one of these techniques a try on your next card!
