Here's the Design Team:


This card has a funny looking design on the present. I was done by accident. I dripped Elmer's Craft Bond onto the cardstock after I stamped the image. I thought I had gotten off with a paper towel. I think it dried before I started coloring. I colored it and this is the result. No paper piecing on this one.

This was paper pieced. I added some color to the bow with a marker.

Today's Tutorial Time Challenge is to use Fabric on cards.
This is my card:

Wow! Cool effect the dried glue gave you. Love the buttons on the second card and the pretty detail on the wrapped pkg.

Gorgeous cards, Thrifty. How cool that the glue made it look paper pieced. I especially love the second card with the buttons and pretty colors.

What a happy accident on the first card. I really like the effect. It seems that paper piecing is the way to go with this set!
