Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...this week our theme is PAPER PIECING! 

We invite you to play along by submitting your project at the KKS Blog. One winner per month will be drawn from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card, and you can enter as many times per month as you'd like!! November 11th at 11:55 pm EST is the deadline.

  3. In addition to our Krafty Challenges & Wonderful Wednesdays, each month KKS will post a Sketch. The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card! You do not have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if needed! ;) You can find the sketch at the KKS Blog

This sweet little elf is one of two main images from the Treat Yours-Elf stamp set. The sentiment is also part of the set. I stamped the image in Memento Desert Sand and coloured with Copics. I paper-pieced the gift to look like wrapping paper. I always add shading to my paper-pieced elements to ensure they blend into the coloured image. Without that bit of shading to create dimension, the gift would appear as flat as the coordinating background paper. 

Hope you plan to play along! Make sure to stop by the KKS blog to see more paper-piecing projects!

Thanks for stopping by,
