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)

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!

Quilted Christmas-so cute!

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!

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.
