Hello everyone! Happy Monday!
Today I have a project that I've been working on over the past few days as I was able. (I have family in from out of state so I only have minutes here and there to get into my craft room)... but I wanted to show you this fun quilt card I made. I have made a few of these before and I have to say they are labor intensive... but each one I do gets a little better so practice is helping! I only make these for really special people though. LOL!
I also want to mention the quilt rack. My husband and I made these last year, based on a similar one seen on Debbie Olson's blog (Thinking Inking).
For my card, I started with a base of True Thyme (5 1/2" square) and I cut 3/4" squares from BasicGrey's Wassil designer paper. I cut a 4" square of white and ran it through the Textile Cuttlebug folder, then lightly sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I attachde all the little squares in a straight line (the fun part) around the perimeter, spacing evenly between the center panel and the outside edge.
My Poinsettias are from Our Daily Bread designs new November Release, Luke 2:11 and are stamped on watercolor paper with Archival Jet Black four times. I colored them with Reinkers in Cranberry Crisp and touches of Certainly Celery and So Saffron. I cut them out and popped up some petals for definition. For the centers, I dyed white ZVA pearls with Adirondak Sunshine Yellow Alcohol Ink and clustered them in the center.
The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread designs Blessed Christmas and I used True Thyme to stamp with and T Holtz distress Ink to sponge. I used my slot punch on one end and my corner rounder on the other and added the True Thyme ribbon. I used an EK Success edge punch and used the negative parts for my scrolly elements. I had planned on sewing on this one but time got away from me. Next time I'll sew! :)
One note on the stamps I used: These stamps are part of a three set release by Our Daily Bread designs in November. If you buy all three sets you will save 10% on the bundle! With all the great Christmas verses and sentiments, that's a great deal!
