Paper Pieced Stamping...

Paper piecing is a fun way to give your old stamps a new look. This technique is a favorite of mine. Depending on the stamp you choose, you could have a bit of tedious work ahead of you, but for the most part this is super easy to do.

"Lovin' From The Oven":

Supplies Used:
Card: Michael's
Patterned Paper: Unknown (using up scraps)
Stamps: Pink, Sugar, Pop!; Close To My Heart
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Ribbon: Darice
Die Cuts: Nestabilities Labels 8 (Spellbinders)
Other: Pop Dots; Staples (Making Memories)
STEP 1: You can ink the entire stamp, but to save ink, I ink only the portion I am going to be using.

STEP 2: Stamp on the patterned paper of your choice.

STEP 3: Cut out the portion of your stamped image (I have found that micro-tip scissors work best for this process).

STEP 4: Continue Steps 1 through 3 for each "piece" of the stamp. The photo below shows all pieces of the stamp I chose.

STEP 5: The final step is to adhere to your project. Using Pop Dots/Foam Tape will give your image added interest and dimension.

How did it get to be Monday again so quickly? Ugh!!! Hope you are all making the best of it :)
