Christmas

Quilt Cards Made Easy

I was inspired by Patty Bennet’s Postage Stamp punch cards a few days ago! I grabbed my Postage Stamp punch and started punching DSP! I laid it out on a 3 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the NEW Stamp-Cut-Emboss machine (SCEM) with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing folder! The finished product reminded me of a quilt! This is going to be our technique for stamp club for September!!

TIPS:

  1. Center your punched shapes first and then arrange the others around it.
  2. Let some of the shape over-hang- you can always trim it with your Paper Snips.
  3. Adhere the shapes to the Whisper White base before running it through the die cutting machine.
  4. Use a glue dot to hold down your knot before you finish your bow.

Here is a close up of the detail that the Dainty Diamond Embossing folder makes after you run the whole piece through! I cut a piece of Gold Foil using the small scalloped die from the Little Treat Box Dies. I stamped the saying from the Wrapped in Christmas set and punched it out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.

Card Dimensions:

Garden Green cut a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ (A2 size); Real Red 4″x 4 1/4″; Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 4 1/4″; Gold foil scrap; Whisper White scrap; Tis’ the Season 6×6 pack (3 designs)

This is a super quick and great card to make multiples of for Christmas Cards! Click on the products below to order your own! Be sure to get this month’s Free Card Kit with the purchase of the Nothing Better Than Bundle! Read all about it here!

Petal Garden Quilt

Quilted Petal

I have always admired people who make quilts!  I have even thought of trying to make one.  But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!!  So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern.  I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.

To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches.  A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!)  Shocker!  This is the technique card for stamp club this month.

Quilted Wood Words

VDOG5076

I was cruising through Pinterest (shocked, I know) and stumbled across a similar card.  I changed up the colors completely and made the main quilt area my own. I was feeling the upcoming holidays and wanted to use a Patriotic color scheme. I LOVE how it turned out!  This will be a club card for June!

I first stamped the rooster, heart, and star with color on color.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Dapper Denim, and Very Vanilla with Crumb Cake.  Then I used the smallest Stitched Shape square to cut out each one.

TIP: When lining up rows and columns, start with the middle first and work around until you have it even.  To get the mat dimension, I measured the squares when they were on my workspace and added 1/4″.  I wanted extra on the bottom so I could use the space for the sentiment.

It’s hard to see, but there is a strip of the new 6″ x 6″ Wood Textures paper pack!  I then used the 1/4″ Copper Trim and frayed the ends. Then I used the Label Me Pretty stamp set with the coordinating Pretty Label punch.  We are soooo close to being able to order from the NEW catalog!  Do you need one?  Do you need a demonstrator?  I am your gal!  I also have a great team too!  Check out the swaps that we did at our last meeting!
