March Monthly Challenge-Paper piecing

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!!

This will be the first of two posts today. Make sure to come back later to see the Product Spotlight Sale of the Week and the New Weekly Candy.

It's the first Monday of the Month so that means it's time for a new Monthly Challenge!

But first, the winner of last month's Valentine/Love Challenge is:
Congratulations, Jessica Griffin!! Please email me at and I will get you your prize Gift Certificate!!
Here is her winning card...

And now it's time for our new challenge...
Paper Piecing!!

One lucky participant will win a $25 gift certificate to Stamp and Create.

You are welcome to use any stamp to enter. You are also welcome to create tags, boxes, or scrapbook pages as long as it follows the challenge theme.

However, if you are in need of stamps or supplies, check out our store - we just might have what you are looking for!!

Now let's check out some of our Design Team cards for inspiration
(Chris is in the process of moving and will be in and out over the next few weeks while Vicky has a sore wrist and may not be able to participate until it starts to feel better)...

Heidi used one of the darlings from the Miss Anya Dressy set. Miss Anya was paper pierced with Basic Grey Olivia Paper. The sentiment is Friendship Notables 2 from Whimsy and cut out with the Notables 2 die.The Olivia paper was also used on the card. The ribbon is May Arts Rose Ribbon tied with the Bow Easy. She also used Kaisercraft Coconut Mini Paper Blooms, little daisy flower spacers with Basic Grey Eva Brads and a flower #2 charm.

Jeanette used one of the new CC Designs Swiss Nymph Lucy for her card. She paper-pieced her dress using paper from the scrumptious new MME paper pad Miss Caroline Howdy Doody. She also used May Arts White silk ribbon and the bow easy to tie a beautiful bow. She added Ranger Stickles in Crystal to the wings and embellished the corner with Basic Grey Curlique rub-ons.

Now it's your turn!!
The challenge runs through 7pm April 1st.
