TESC84 with a Beary Special Friend

And I paper pieced!!

I really loved the sketch Taylor had done up for TESC84 and since my new Beary Special set just arrived, I had to use it.

Donna at Serenity in Stamping, who happens to be a part of the Baker's Dozen and Sketch Challenge team at Taylored Expressions, is always inspiring me with her awesome paper piecing, but the technique truly terrified me. Well, how can you be scared of something when it is done with this sweet bear? I finally did it. I paper pieced - and I enjoyed it. Between paper piecing and paper tole, I might actually get some of my paper used up...one day.

Stamps: TE Beary Special
Paper: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Summer Picnic DSP, Maine Blueberry DSP
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Real Red Ribbon
Technique: Paper Piecing


  1. This teddy is so cute and I love that you paper pieced him! I have to use this technique more myself! Have a great day!

  2. I don't think my first comment went through.

    This card is the sweetest! love the blue bear--I knew you would survive this fun & easy technique! It's a great way to use up small pieces of papers and get out of coloring too!

  3. awww this is toooo cute, and I love your paper pieced bear, very very sweet!!!

  4. Very cute bear!! Love the blue and red combo and Summer picnic was one of my all time favourite dp's I used it all up!!!
