Each month Stampin' Up! puts out an Art Challenge to the demonstrators. Well I've decided to pass on that challenge to you!! Can't let you miss out on the fun!! This month the challenge is PAPER PIERCING!! Well let's explain by way of example:

Here the stamped image, the letters have been stamped onto patterened Designer Series Paper and then cut out and added to the scrapbook page:

Here's another example

The image has been stamped on Designer Series paper and a black brad added to the centre of the flower. The flowers are then attached to the card front.

If stamp is a bold image you may wish to stamp with versamark before cutting out the image or turn over the cardstock or DSP before using the image on a card or scrapbook page.
I am sure you will find lots more creative ways to paper pierce using your stamp sets. eg the shirt or skirt can be in different coloured papers.
You creation can be either a scrapbook page or a card. I look forward to seeing what is produced!!
