ATS Challenge #36

I got a chance this weekend to make a card for the current All That Scraps Design Team Challenge #36. This challenge was to use the paper piecing technique. I love how cards turn out using this technique, but for me it is a little time consuming. Although this time Alexa was interested in doing this too. I will post her stab at it at the end of this post. 

For this card I used CC Design Stamp Sets - My Rubber Ducky. I thought that is was the techinque would be perfect for this bear in the towel. I just wanted to let you know that I used Soft Sky ink on the bubbles and then covered them with Crystal Effects to give them a little shine. I think it turned out so cute!

You can find my "Relaxing Bear" card on SCS - HERE.

Stamps: CC Designs My Rubber Ducky
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
 and assorted DSP
Inks: Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Oval Punch, Brad,
 Chocolate Chip Poly-twill Ribbon, Crystal Effects, 
Dimensionals and adhesive

As promised, here is Alexa's Paper Piecing Technique. She did all the stamping, cutting and piecing of the bear. When I asked her about the bear's pink hand she said "that he is holding a sudsy bar of soap and there are bubbles all over his hand - that's why I left it pink MOM." For those of you who know Alexa, she sounded just as you imagine - that "MOM, why are you asking me that silly question" reply.
