Fun with Christmas Quilt

SKIU5706 (1)

I love sewing projects and would love to learn how to make quilts!  So, when I saw the Christmas Quilt suite, I had to have it!  It’s filled with cute felt embellishments, a gorgeous Designer Series Paper pack, stamp set, and coordinating dies!

This card has a few extra steps, but the result is so worth it!  I used a Crumb Cake base and stamped the stitched flower randomly with Crumb Cake ink.  I then cut out the small flower with the Real Red piece before I ran the Real Red piece through with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  (I love to save paper when I can) What is nice about making this card is that you can make 3 of the quilt panels with what you cut out.  I took 3 different pieces of the DSP (cut to 3″x 3″) and ran all 3 through with the quilt block die.  To make this a little easier to piece together, I used a Whisper White piece for a backing.  I glued the outline part of the DSP to the Whisper White.  Then I stamped the star portion of the quilt block.  I then pieced the paper into the remaining places.

You will notice that after that part is finished, I ran it through the Quilted Embossing folder to add the stitched quilt top look. It’s finished off with 1/8″ Gold ribbon and a rhinestone.  I just love how it turned out!

Colorful Copper Leaves 

Colorful Seasons copper 1

I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas!  I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season!  One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle!  It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images!  Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!

Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique.  The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again.  When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!

This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique.  I just switched the embossing powder to Copper!  I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler.  (in that order)  I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem.  I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves.  I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.

I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!

Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

Quilted Christmas-so cute!

FDQH3261

I couldn’t’ wait to play with the Quilted Christmas stamp set and Quilt Builder dies!  We went on our annual Labor Day craft retreat weekend and I have a TON to show!! That was a much needed break from the long summer!

I just had my Team Meeting last week and here is the Make n Take we all made together!  I recommend watching this video that Stampin’ Up! put together!  It really showcases the different ways to use this set to maximize your investment!

Quilted Christmas Video

I first ran the Garden Green piece through Big Shot with the Quilt Top Textured Embossing Folder.  I love that you can use either side-both are pretty!! I then stamped the quilted star outline with a darker color, Garden Green.  Then I used Pool Party and Lucky Lime Twist for the panels.  I cut it out with the coordinating dies. The stitched part layers inside the outline die.  That is what made me think to cut out the Real Red background piece. I finished it off with the sentiment on a banner and some White Baker’s Twine.

Carols of Christmas

Carols of Christmas

Are you ready to get a head start on your Christmas cards??  Well, look no further!  You can now order this great bundle, Carols of Christmas and Card Front Builder Thinlits! I had a blast making the border for this card using the Thinlits!  I have also wanted to make a card using the Sheet Music background stamp-Christmas cards always look great with that in the back!

To make it pop, I cut a piece of Gold Foil the same size and placed it behind the Cherry Cobbler piece. I couldn’t stand not paper saving with my Gold Foil, so I cut out a Stitched Shape to use on another project.  I love to paper save with the mat piece-all the extra paper that I can use for actual card bases instead of cutting into smaller pieces!

I then used the White Craft Ink to make it look like a chalkboard for the sentiment.  Next, I double the Linen Thread to make the bow pop!  I love how it turned out!  I decieded to make this a club card too!  Just click on Laura’s Stampin Up website and shop!  There are great new items on the Clearance Rack too!  The bundle code is: Wood 146036; Clear 146037
