CAS-ual Fridays Paper Piecing Card

I recently received Sweet Stamp Shop's The 'Core' of it stamp set from LizScraps for one of her birthday blog candy giveaways. She still has two more giveaways planned, so you want to head over to her blog to check it out.

I was pretty excited since this is one of the sets from SSS that I don't yet have and have been wanting to get, and it's just perfect for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

I wanted to create the idea of movement/progression of time in this card, so you go from the whole apple, to one with a slice taken out, to just the core. The first two apples are created using the same stamp, I just wiped away the ink on the inside portion of the stamp that has the slice.

I never thought that I would, but I actually love paper piecing. It's time consuming, and slightly tedious (especially when you're cutting out stuff like seeds), but a great TV watching activity and I love how the pieces look when they come together.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a good start!
