Back on Your Feet - Paper Piecing

I love to paper piece and the Stampin' Up!® Back on Your Feet Stamp Set is perfect for that.  I created this pretty card in Evening Evergreen and Crumb Cake to demonstrate paper piecing.  The shell was a little fiddly for paper piecing, but I have to admit I love how it turned out!  What do you think?  Will you give it a try?


  1. Cut Evening Evergreen cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Crumb Cake card stock 4" x 5 1/4".  Emboss using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Evening Evergreen card stock 3 1/8" x 4 1/8"
  4. Cut Basic White card stock 3" x 4"
  5. Stamp image about 1/2" from top using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  6. Colour image using Stampin' Blends - I used Soft Succulent, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.
  7. Stamp second image on 2 different Designer Series Paper patterns in green colours.  I used one from Tidings and Trimmings and one from Nature's Harvest.
  8. Cut out pieces and adhere to the matching places on coloured image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  9. Stamp sentiment under image about 1/2" from bottom using Evening Evergreen Ink.
  10. Adhere to Evening Evergreen card stock piece using Stampin' Seal.
  11. Wrap ribbon around Evening Evergreen piece and adhere to the back using Stampin' Seal.
  12. Cut about 3" of ribbon and tie onto ribbon across card.
  13. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
