SSW206: Digistamp Boutique

Happy Wednesday!!

We have another sketch challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog that we hope you will try.

This week our sponsor is Sally-Ann from Digistamp Boutique.  I'm using another "Murphy" digi.  Sally-Ann has an entire collection of Murphys that I will probably "need" eventually.

I paper-pieced Murphy's little balloon and present.  I love this technique because it's an awesome way to use tiny scraps but had never tried it with digis.  I don't know why but feeding DP through my printer intimidated me.  It worked just fine as you can see (though you DO need to use larger pieces in the printer ... I jammed it up trying to use one of the microscopic pieces from my stash!!)

Sally-Ann is offering up 6 free digis as the prize this week.

Come-on and join us!!


  1. So cute, Joanna!! I love the paper peicing for the present and balloon. It really makes your image pop. I know about the jamming thing...I have done that one too. LOL Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. Super cute!! Love how you popped the balloon off of the circle - very clever. I always wonder why I don't do more paper piecing when I see it because I LOVE IT!!
    Blessings to you!!

  3. Darling card and cute image. Love this new sketch. I never think to paper pirce things like the balloon, so cool!

  4. Murphy is just adorable and the paper piecing is perfect! Thanks so much for you kind comments on my creation this week too, I really appreciate it. You mentioned that you will be in my neck of the desert? I live and work in downtown Phoenix. Not sure where you will be, but if it works out I'd love to meet for coffee somewhere! Safe travels and let me know!

    Peace & Luv,

  5. Sweet card Joanna. Soooo adorable.

    Great paper piecing on the balloon.

    Hope you have a great week.

  7. Hi Joanna your card is so cute, I love that paper piecing isn't it great when you get an image you can do that with. This is an awesome birthday card and I do love your colours. Take care and I hope your having a lovely weekend.
