פייפר פיסינג ביוצאות מהקווים - Paper piecing

Hello everybody!

 שלום לכולן! 

It's time for another challenge at the Israeli blog "Going Out of Lines" and the theme is Paper Piecing. I though that it's a great opportunity to use several Magnolia stamps, which I bought and haven't used even once since then - "Right Through My Heart" and "Heart Keyhole".
I paper pieced the heart and made an envelope with 10 wish tickets inside. This could be given as a present to a beloved person, while on the back side of each ticket he/she could put down a wish to be fulfilled :)

הגיע זמן לאתגר חדש בבלוג "יוצאות מהקווים". הנושא הנבחר הינו "פייפס פיסינג" ואנחנו מאוד מקווים לראות את העבודות שלכן משתתפות באתגר. אני חשבתי שזו הזדמנות מעולה בשבילי סוף-סוף לבצע שימוש שחותמות של מגנוליה שרכשתי לפני המון זמן ועד כה לא מצאתי להן שימוש. בחותמת של הלב הגדול השתמשתי בעצם בשביל הפייפר פיסינג עצמו ובחותמת השנייה (קטנה יותר) - לצורך הכנת כרטיסי משאלות. את המעטפה עם הכרטיסים אפשר לתת כמתנה למישהו מיוחד, כאשר מאחורי כל כרטיס (יש 10 כרטיסים בחבילה) אותו הבן אדם המיוחד יוכל לרשום משאלה כלשהי ועליך יהיה להגשים אותה.

Here's the view of the envelope from the back side:
כך נראית המעטפה מאחורה: 

From the front side:
וכך - מקדימה:


Here are several close-ups:
להלן מספר תקריבים:

And here are the paper pieced parts:
כאן ניתן לראות את חלקי הנייר מהם הרכבתי את הלב:

נשמח לראות אתכן מבקרות בבלוג של יוצאות מהקווים!!!

Thanks for reading! See you back soon!
