Sweet Stamp Shop Tutorial Tuesdays

Hello SWEET friends! Are you ready for another installment of Tutorial Tuesdays?  It's Jessi here to share with you 'how to add dimension' to your card or project. There are so many ways to make your card POP!


My favorite way to add life to a card is paper-piecing. Large images (like the large pinwheel from the 'Wheely Like You' stamp set) make this a simple technique to complete. All you have to do is stamp the image on a variety of papers and cut out the different layers of the image.

Another way to add dimension, is by adding different layers/textures to the design. As you can see below, the thickness of the button, foam letters, layers and the banner adds to the POP factor on the card.



Used is today's card, Wheely Like You:



Do you enjoy paper piecing? Do you have any tips about adding dimension to your projects? We would love to hear your thoughts? And would love to see you projects added to our Flickr group! And since you are uploading you projects to Flickr, why not add the project to Sweet Stamp Shop's Use What You Have Challenge (new challenge starts on Wednesdays)!
