New Sewing Necessary

If someone makes you a quilt you KNOW they love you! I have always wanted to learn to quilt but I am positive I don’t have the patience to ever complete one. For right now I am content to look at them on Pinterest and Facebook! I have also read almost every novel written that involves quilts. My favorites are the Elm Creek Quilters Series. Have you read them? You should!!

 

Even though I don’t quilt I can show you have to make a quilt card. No sewing skills necessary. Because it is made from paper it is not as expensive as fabric and if you mess up you just get another piece of paper.

 

Coming up with lots of color combinations was really fun. I have yet to make a Christmas card with this set even though it was created with Christmas in mind.

 

Has anyone ever made you a quilt? I would love to hear the story of your special quilt.

 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Peace, Love and Joy

Every once and awhile a stamp set comes along that really grabs your attention. Every Good Wish is one of those sets. This is a Christmas/Holiday set but I can see ways to use it for other occasions. Stay tuned for more ideas in the future.

Today I am using the set as it was intended: Christmas wishes! I have paired it with Colorful Seasons framelits – another MUST HAVE set! Look at those amazing snowflakes!

Night of Navy and Whisper White = an elegant card!

Peace on Earth

Today I am sharing another color challenge card I created a few weeks ago. Whenever I get in a rut or can’t make up mind what to create I either look for color ideas or sketch ideas. That gives me a starting point and then I can start working. If you need help jumpstarting your stamping mojo give this a try…it really works!

Here is the color palette I started with:

And here is my card:

It came out pretty close to what I saw in my mind.

Tips & Tricks

Here are a few tips to create this card:

  • I used the moon and stars thinlit at the top of the Tranquil Tide cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) using the Big Shot, then I mounted it on a Soft Sky cardstock base: 4-1/4″ x 11″

  • The greeting was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White scrap cardstock and die cut using the Circle Framelits. I used the scallop framelit to cut Cherry Cobbler then mounted the sentiment on the Cherry Cobbler piece.

  • The ribbon is the New Shimmer Ribbon in Powder Pink.

  • The frosted trees are die cut from Pink Pirouette cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then they are offset to give the glimmer trees a pink shadow.

  • The snow is the Seaside Embossing folder coated with Wink of Stella to give it a pretty shine.

Carols of Christmas stamp set is an early release from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. That means you can order this stamp set and framelit set now! If you like to get an early start on your holiday card making then this set should give you a huge head start. It makes cards with a WOW factor for sure.

I hope this will inspire you to try some new colors or ideas….stretch that imagination.

Christmas Joy

Today’s card is the result of a poll I took on my Facebook page. I shared 4 Christmas color combinations and people made comments. One color combo that was very popular was this one:

So I decided to give it a try.

Here’s my card:

This certainly is not very “traditional” but I am happy with the way it turned out.

See the word Joy?? I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit “enjoy”. All I had to do was cut off the en = joy.
