I realized yesterday that the 28th is quickly approaching and I did not yet do February's SFYTT. Nothing like Cosmo Cricket to get the crafting started. CC and paper piecing to the rescue.
I really wanted some extra texture on the cupcake, so I used my crimper on a strip of PP and then stamped the liner. By stamping after crimping the liner stayed the same size as the rest of the cupcake.
Besides February's SFYTT, this one is also for MFW's paper piecing challenge. Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques and has always been my go to when working with images that need to be "colored". I only started coloring with Copics in September, so I have even paper pieced body parts using skin tone paper :>) If only it was so easy for us to get a perfect tan for ourselves that way!
It felt so great to get crafty. My paper cutter and ATG have been getting a lot of use the past few weeks, but not on cards. My DD's Girl Scout troop was getting ready to celebrate World Thinking Day and all my free time has gone to preparing for that.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
