Paper Piecing

Jane from San Diego linked to my Nestabilities baby dress card on the Spellbinders-Wizard group, so I wanted to share other possibilities with paper piecing. I have made a baby carriage similar to the one a member posted that began this thread, but can not locate a photo of it at the moment. I know it is here somewhere!
Anyway, if you cut the oval a little different, you can make an angel as shown above.
Here I rolled up one of the rectangular nestabilities and made a flower holder.
This is another example of the pop up cards we were discussing last week, similar to my Tea for Two card, but this one uses circular nestabilities and Inkadinkado stamps.
For this fun layout, I used the bird nestabilities to make a bikini top and penquins....a little different chirp from a familiar die!

You do such great work! I love the penguins... would you mind sharing how you did them?

Thanks, Elaine. It is the bird die turned on it's end and airbrushed with Copics to give them the coloring. I cut a mask to use when airbrushing. I actually have a card I made with several of them...I will post that for Thursday. Let me know if you have any questions about them.

Thank you! That is so neat! I look forward to seeing the cards on Thursday.

Oh I LOVE this layout! And how clever of you to create these different items by using just one and the same die! I haven't done any thing with die cuts or those machines whatsoever ever in my life - but am seriously intruiged after browsing through your blogposts!:)

ps. the bikini undies weren't made with the bird die though, were they? :)
