Geometric Paper Piecing

The Modsquad challenge simply wouldn’t let go and even kept me wakeful thinking about how to do another card. I guess that means that the challenge is a truly good one and one of my stamp buddies has also done more than one …


Starting out with a cream CS I cut the geometric shape and with other CS I die cut several more so that I would have different colours to paper piece with. I adhered the frame to Black CS and began to fill in the spaces with various shades of brown and cream leaving a few black spaces. Taking the small word dies, of which there are 10 in the set, I cut out them out in a dark cream. When I laid them on top I realized that the dark cream didn’t show up well on all the browns so I carefully spread versamark on a few and then heat embossed in black. I added some nuvo christel glaze to the dark cream ones. Worked a treat although time consuming to do even with a trick of using purple tape to hold them together. I adhered the words down and was about to post the card when I realized I had forgotten the tag. After die cutting the smallest one I stamped the word hello in black and added a couple of black fallout pieces from another project. Then I added the dark brown wool to the top and tied a small bow. Finally my brain can let go of this challenge – lol.

  1. Thanks Gerry – I think I’m like Gayle as I couldn’t get this challenge out of my head. I also think others are having trouble with it as there aren’t many entries so far.


    1. Thanks Judy – Once I had done this card I could finally get the challenge out of my head. It really bothered me that I couldn’t create something vibrant with these colours. This one helped a lot on that score.


  2. I agree with everyone else that I’m loving the geometric design….and then there’s that darned tag! The tag looks great where you added it. Awesome card.

  3. Totally agree with you about tags. To me they belong on packages not on cards although I have used them on occasion as an embellishment to something. They’ve worked for me that way but the one on this card almost got forgotten. I had already done my photo – was about to post when I remembered it needed one. The dilemma was meeting the challenge without detracting from what I had already done as it wasn’t in my initial design plan. I don’t think I’ve ever had a challenge that bothered me like this one did.
