Paper Piecing with Stamps

An easy way to get the paper piecing look without too much work is to put those stamps to work.

I started by picking my stamp and the colors that I would need to "paper piece". Since I picked a candy corn stamp - I picked white, orange, and yellow cardstock.

I then stamped the image on each sheet of cardstock with the same black ink.

I then chose for my " base" to be the white cardstock paper. So I cut out the orange and yellow secions of the cady corn. After I simply adhered them to the white paper - leaving the whit tip the same.

I then cut all the images out (this step can be skipped - it just depends on your design) and adhered them with pop dots on a little tag that I made to add to a Halloween gift.

This is really easy and simple and allows you to use your stamps a little differently -- hope you enjoyed it!

*Here is a layout where I simply added to the strip of stammped images -- the only cutting was the layering that I did!
