Top Note Quilting ~ KWerner CI #50

Kristina Werner is having her 50th Color Inspiration Challenge!
Go check out her blog for all the awesome prizes for the winners of this challenge.
I really liked the first Top Note Quilt Card I did so I thought I would use up some scraps of DSP and try a different quilt pattern. I started with a 4.5" x 5.5" Whisper White card stock. I centered a 1" square on the whisper white tilted as a diamond. I cut 1" strips of paper and then I lined up the first strip to go along side the diamond and across the card and kept going around. Once the card was full, I trimmed off the edges that were overhanging. I then cut it out with the Top Note Die. I ran it through a second time using the Diamond Texturze Plate to give it a quilted look.
Thanks for stopping by :-)

Fabulous Friend Card Swap

This is the card I made for our down line meeting this month. I really like how the flower in the Fabulous Friend stamp goes really well with the Bella Rose DSP. I colored in the flower with Pretty in Pink a light coat first then I went back over it in the dark areas to give it some depth. The center of the flower is done in Real Red and So Saffron. I also used Kiwi Kiss on all the little dots.

Top Note Quilt Card

I have seen so many beautiful cards done this way that I just had to make one :-)
I really like the colors in the Tea Party DSP, it makes for a bright & cheery card!
Just a little edit, the quilt squares are cut at 1 1/4" x 1 1/4", you can use a paper cutter or the 1 1/4" Square Punch. I used a 4 x 5" piece of Whisper White to adhere the squares to (I just used Snail). The squares will not cover the 4 x 5 completely but it is the perfect size for the Top Note Die.
Have a great weekend.
Stamps: Oval All
Paper: So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Tea Party DSP
Ink: Choc. Chip, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Certainly Celery GG Ribbon, & Dimensionals.

Walk in the Park meets Fifth Avenue Floral

I love this new paper out of the Occasions Mini!
I was wanting to make an Easter card that was elegant looking and this is what I came up with. The flower was stamped with Timber Brown Stazon onto Watercolor paper. I then used Twinkling H2O's to paint the flower. I tried really hard to get a photo that would show the shimmer of the flower. Click on photo to enlarge it and you can see it a little better.
Happy Easter Everyone :-)
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral & All Holidays
Paper: Baja Breeze, Watercolor, Walk in the Park DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze & Timber Brown Stazon

Walk in the Park Anniversary Card

My Parents "48th" Anniversary was Sunday, what a milestone. I found this card on Split Coast Stampers and had to give it a little twist of my own. Because I am a Glitter Junkie I used Versamark first then into the Baja Breeze onto Whisper White. I then applied Heat & Stick powder and then Dazzling Diamonds, it's just the "pop" that it needed!

Thoughts & Prayers

One of the girls I work with is going through a tough time right now as her father has pancreatic cancer. As a whole the floor, took up some donations and put together a basket for her and her family. I wanted to make the card instead of something store bought. I went with spring colors to try and brighten their day. She was so excited when she opened the envelope, "Ohhhh, It's a Cindy card!!!" I spoke with her later and her Mom could not believe that I made this card.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers, Great Friend

A Spackle Flower!

I bet you're wondering about this title. Well, I belong to Prairie Stampers Club. We meet once a month and we get to learn something new. Last month we learned how to use spackle (wall spackle used in construction). Start with watercolor paper and get it wet by dipping it in water. Next apply spackle, not too thick or too thin and do not make it completely smooth. Let air dry for about 20-25 minutes and then use a deep etched stamp and press it into the spackle and then lift directly up. Let image dry for 24-48 hours and then paint. I used Twinkling H2O's to give it a little shimmer. It sure didn't look like much in the beginning but it made a beautiful card. This will be going to Afghanistan for the troops along with others from Prairie Stampers Club.
Stamp: Stamp unknown, this image was already done prior as we did not have time to let spackle dry in order to complete a card.
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink: Lavender Lace
Paint: Twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Paint brushes, Large Oval and Scallop Oval punches, Certainly Celery twill ribbon, and dimensionals.
