3-D Paper Piecing: Attention to Detail

My style is simple. Usually. But when I saw the Friday Mashup Challenge for 3-D Paper Piecing, my interest was piqued and this little elephant from the You’re Amazing stamp set came to mind:

I did my paper piecing a little different as I didn’t have the 3-d glue suggested in the tutorial video, so I cut out the largest whole elephant image (including hat), then layered it on my base with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue, next cut out the elephant head/trunk/hat and adhered that, and finally, the party hat! Other than that, I followed the tutorial substituting the tools I had from Stampin’ Up!

It’s fussy, detail-oriented work, but I loved the result! You can watch Mariska’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. 

Combining the Friday Mashup 3-D and color challenge with the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary, here is the finished card:

I’ve also challenged my Stampin’ Family to “Go for the GOLD” so you may notice the gold sequins that add a little bling to the whole thing as an homage to the US Olympic Team 🙂

If you love this card, you can make one of your own at my 3-D Card Class on February 20th!
