Life Is A Carnival

I wanted to practice more on the paper-pieicing technique, so I chose a bigger image from my TCM stamp set: Life is  A Carnival. As compared with my other paper-piecing project (the ice cream stamping was tiny), this carousel image is large and easy to cut out.

Here's what I did:
1. Stamp image 1 on a plain cardstock.
2. Stamp image 2 on a yellow printed paper.
3. Stamp image 3 on a blue printed paper. 
4. Cut out the images on the printed paper and piece them together.

Do you like paper piecing? What do you think of my paper-piecing poject?

I am  definitely enjoying and lovin' my TCM stamp set. I'm using the carousel image again and this time, I just colored the image. I'm not always following card sketches because there are sketches that are too complicated for me. When I choose a particular sketch, most of the time it becomes my favorite, and I tend to use it all over again. For this card, I followed the sketch by FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #21.

The sentiments are also from the same set.

And Finally, I made small sized cards using the same stamp set. These are 4"x4" cards, just simple (and easy) ones. I'm thinking if I could use these as Carnival themed party invitations. What do you think?
