Sandy from Paper Transformer

I had the opportunity to "work" with them for a little bit while they served on the Digital Stamp Oasis design team and I was amazed by their talent and hard work. So I decided to ask them to join our team here. We are so happy that they have both accepted! I am sure you will enjoy their creations!!

Challenge #54 "Paper Piece with Digitals!"

Hi and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge! This week's Challenge is 'Paper Piecing with Digitals!' Now, I'm sure many of you are already familiar with paper piecing with stamps, but did you know it can also be done with Digitals? You simply print your image onto white card stock, like you normally would, then you print it again onto designer paper! You cut out just the portions of the part of the image from the designer paper you want, and glue it to your card stock.

It is so easy, and it really adds an interesting element to your card or project. You can even use your scraps like I did! I simply taped scraps of designer paper to a piece of copy paper where I knew the image would print. I then inserted that copy paper into my machine. It worked beautifully!

*******************

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous

My Grafico

and they are giving away a free digi set AND 30% off any store purchase to one lucky randomly chosen winner! So you'll really want to play along this week for a chance to win this great prize!

**************

Please leave a direct link to your creation with Mr Linky or if you don't have a blog, you can upload to an online gallery using the keyword DTC54
Remember you must use a digital image somewhere on your creation to enter and your creation must be new, please do not backlink to older posts.
As always you can combine with other challenges if you wish.


And now, here is some inspiration from the talented design team. My Grafico was generous and gave the designers the adorable 'Birthday Girl' set designed by Chi Chi Memories to use.
