How To Make A Quilt Card

Hi Friends.  Today I’m going to show you a popular trend happening in the card making world.  And that is how to make a quilt card.  Or a card that looks like a quilt?  You know what I’m saying… ha ha ha

So how can you make that centerpiece?  Well, to begin with, you will need to cut 4 squares of paper.  Each one was 1″.  Then, cut the squares with scissors like I’ve shown you in the picture below.

Now that you have the pieces ready, you will start to put them in place on the white square.  (This square was made by using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Big Shot machine)

Start with the larger pieces first.

Then place the smaller yellow pieces in, lining them up with the pink.  Now, they aren’t going to be perfectly symmetrical, but… I found one good way to hold them in place was to use post-it note holders.

I used the post-it notes to keep them in place while I glued each one down.

Basket Bunch

In todays project, I’m creating a card using the cutest stamp set Basket Bunch and the coordinating die set- Basket Builder.  It feels like it’s been winter for 10 years where I live with plenty of snow still on the ground and overcast days.  I need to add a whole lot of color to my projects to brighten things up!

Basket Bunch

 I started with a sketch over at MOJO Monday.  Then, I chose the stamp set and colors.  It all came together pretty fast, actually.  You can see the list of supplies I used below.  If you really love this card, then you should check out the class or kit to-go I’m offering below.  Early bird ends Thursday.

Dragonfly Dreams

By | March 17, 2017

Dragonfly Dreams

Is it spring where you are yet?  We are on the brink here in New England, although winter is going out with a lion.  As I write this, there is snow falling outside my window.  Sigh… BUT, this card puts me in the mood for spring.  The popular Dragonfly Dreams stamp set is being carried over into the new catalog and this makes everybody happy!!

Dragonfly Dreams

Dragonfly Dreams

All the products that were used are listed below.  (and hey- did you know that if you click on the products, it takes you directly to the store to purchase them?)

Notice that die cut black Dragonfly underneath?  Well, rather than use a scrap piece of black, I cut it out of the layer of black cardstock from underneath.  Getting used to using up that layer underneath is a great way to save a little bit of money when you’re crafting!

Dragonfly Dreams

I wanted the wings to pop up a little so I only adhered the body of the Dragonfly.  You could use glue dots or the Multipurpose liquid glue.  If you use the liquid glue, just make sure to only use tiny amounts so it doesn’t squish out from the sides.

Succulent Garden floral paper Stampin’ Up! card

By | March 12, 2017

Succulent Garden floral paper Stampin’ Up! card

Some of you may already know this, but I am not a “floral” card person.  Very rarely do I make cards with flowers.  I am more of a modern, bright colors and trendy card kinda girl.  And… I don’t like a lot of “stuff” on my cards.  So when I sat down to re-create this card from the Spring Occasions catalog, it came as a surprise to me- ha ha.  Isn’t it fun when you can surprise yourself?  Anyway- the Succulent Garden floral paper was just calling to me.  It screams spring and I luuuuuv the colors!

Succulent Garden floral paper Stampin' Up! card

Succulent Garden floral paper Stampin' Up! card

At first glance you may think that 2 different colors were used on these flowers.  But not so… to get this super cool look, you would ink the inside of the flower first, stamp on scrap paper, and THEN stamp onto your white cardstock.  Then, ink up the stamped outline of the flower and stamp down directly on top of that.  This gives it the darker outline color without having to use 2 different ink pads.  Cool yes?  

This card is super cute and you can see the original in the catalog as I mentioned at the top of this post.  If you don’t have a catalog or demonstrator yet, send me an email and I’d be happy to get one out to you!  Free of charge ๐Ÿ™‚

Below are all the products I used in this card.  Keep an eye out for a new class coming using all of these gorgeous products!

Dragonfly Dreams

By | March 10, 2017

Dragonfly Dreams

In this elegant project, I’ve used the classic colors of gold and black to really showcase the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Dragonfly Dreams

This is a very popular bundle (both the stamp set and the die cuts) and will be continued over into the new catalog.  This is great news because it means we can create lots more cards and projects to show you! Yay!

Okay, so  this card starts out by stamping the Dragonfly and the decorative dots in Versamark, adding some gold embossing powder and heat setting it with a heat tool.  For more projects using the heat tool, click here.

Dragonfly Dreams

Then, cut out the Dragonfly on the Big Shot machine using the matching framelits and black cardstock.  Glue the Dragonfly down on top of the gold embossed Dragonfly using glue dots.  I would just put the flue on the main part of the Dragonfly’s body so it doesn’t get all gunky.  (Yes, that’s my technical term, ha ha)

Work of Art

By | March 6, 2017

Work of Art

This card ended up looking a bit like the American flag in a way but it certainly wasn’t what I was shooting for- a happy surprise.  Work of Art is a super versatile stamp set and I bet you’ll be surprised that I only used a few inks to make this.

Work of Art

So how did I create it?  Well, to begin with, I stamped on the Very Vanilla cardstock first.  I started at the bottom and worked my way up.  I have no reason as to why I didn’t go top to bottom- I’m weird like that sometimes, ha ha.

I stamped the image in Bermuda Bay and then without cleaning or re-inking the stamp, I stamped 2 more times above it.  Then, I switched to Real Red and did the same thing.  It’s a miracle that it was spaced evenly because I honestly didn’t do anything to make it that way.  I’m an “eyeball it” kind of girl.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and then heat set with White Emboss powder and a heat tool.  I cut it out using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.

The Builder Owl Punch is how I got the cute little flowers and then I finished it off with rhinestones, ribbon and enamel dots.  For the full supply list, you can scroll down.

Glamper Greetings

By | March 5, 2017

Glamper Greetings

Today I’ve got this super fun camping card using a stamp set that was carried over from the Holiday 2016 catalog.  Glamper Greetings is one of the sets that I set my eye on when I first saw the Christmas catalog and I’m so psyched it carried over.  The stamps in this set are just adorable for all year long!  To see a close up of this set, click on the thumbnail image of it below.

Glamper Greetings

I bet you think this paper didn’t come from Stampin’ Up! but you’d be wrong.  It’s called Irresistibly Floral and it comes pre-embossed and white.  So, I took out a sponge and some Night of Navy Ink.  I soaked up some ink into the sponge and started to rub the sponge in circles on a scrap paper underneath this one and then dragged the sponge onto this paper.  I did it this way because it eliminates any ink lines that can happen or big splotches when you start fresh on the paper.

Glamper Greetings

I went heavier on the sponging around the edges and left the middle lighter.  Once I was done, I wiped the cardstock off with a tissue because the ink was covering the embossed circles.

I colored and cut the camper out with scissors and the grass as well.  The clouds came from the Up & Away Thinlits dies.  Those are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To color the camper, I picked up ink with a blender pen from the ink pad lids.

Glamper Greetings

The finishing touch was adding this sentiment with some Enamel Dots on each side.  Below are all the supplies I used.

Today I’m going to show you a bunch of projects made with the Foxy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fox builder punch.  This was a “Thursday Theater” episode.  Check in with me on Facebook, Thursdays at 11 a.m. EST to see the latest project I’m working on!

Foxy Friends

So I began by showing y’all a bunch of projects below.  You can see the video in it’s entirety at the bottom of this post.  The audio is a bit messy because of some high winds we had that day interfering with our Wi-Fi so I apologize for that.

The picture above showcases just SOME of the animals you can make with this adorable bundle.  If you need help figuring out how to re-create one of these cute critters, contact me and I’ll be happy to help!  In the video, I go over the regular fox, a Bunny, Lion and Koala.

Jar of Love

By | March 1, 2017

Jar of Love

Today’s project features the stamp set “Jar of Love” by Stampin’ Up!  I was in the mood for a spring card when I saw a painting of some really vivid colors down below.

Jar of Love

color combinations

So pretty right?  So I took out my ink pads to match them up and start creating.  By the way- I share these color combinations on my Facebook page weekly so you can play along too.

Jar of Love

I ended up stamping tons of flowers.  I did that for a few reasons- the first being that I could use the ones I thought looked the best.  (like there’s much difference, ha ha) and then also so I could have a stash of extra put away for the next time I want to use these flowers.  Neat right?

It’s sort of hard to tell, but I ended up heat embossing the jars using Versamark ink, Clear embossing powder and a heat tool.  So- when the card hits the light the right way, the jars look shiny.

Jar of Love

Now, don’t go thinking I cut all this stuff out with scissors. HECK no- I used the matching framelits to line it all up and cut.  I also used my favorite framelits of all time (Stitched Shapes) to cut out the sentiment.  Oh my word- how stinking cute are these cut outs with the stitching around the edge.  LOVE THEM! 

Jar of Love

One last little touch was to add an enamel shape above the sentiment.  Adorbs.  Those little shapes don’t get nearly the attention they deserve.

Hey, Chick!

By | February 21, 2017

Hey, Chick!

Welcome to today’s project featuring THE most popular stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration 2017 brochure, Hey, Chick!  I took the card from the brochure and changed it up a bit.

Hey, Chick

Hey, Chick

To start with, I embossed the Pool Party cardstock with the large Polka Dots.

Then, after rubbing the Black cardstock with an Embossing Buddy to remove all the static, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss white powder on top.  Now, take a look- I stamped the sentiment 3 times.  See how differently each image looks?  The first one was the bottom one.  It was just inked up.  The top one was the last and I think it came out the best.  So I heat embossed all three and picked the best one for the card.  I just threw the extra’s into the stamp case to use for a different project someday.

Hey, Chick

Next, I decided to color the image with Blender Pens and my ink pad.  If you’ve never done this before- it’s AWESOME.  Basically, you squeeze the ink pad so that the ink gets onto the lid of the ink.  Then just take your marker and swirl it around in the ink.  As you color your image, the ink will get lighter and lighter.  To get the remainder of the ink off, just rub it on scrap paper until it’s clear.

Hey, Chick

Hey, Chick

The last bit of coloring I did was to go around the edge of the chicken with barely any ink on it at all.  I also made it look like he/she was standing on a surface as opposed to just floating in mid air.  I like to do this to give the images some more definition.

Hey, Chick

Once I had decided where to put the sentiment, I realized that because I used the foam Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the chicken up and off the card, I needed to do it with part of the sentiment.  So, I put a dimensional on one side and regular adhesive on the other.  This was so that the cardstock that was hanging off the edge of the chicken didn’t fall flat.  It was all the same height.
