I am fascinated by quilts. Old ones, new ones, it doesn’t matter…
I love all the colors and patterns.
I once thought I might enjoy making a quilt.
But… I knew I’d never have the patience to finish the job. (So I quit before I even started.)
I recently received some new stamps and inkpads from Ann Butler Designs and
Clearsnap to use for a Blog Hop with a few other designers.
The stamps I received are quilt themed stamps and the Crafter’s ink is perfect for fabric, wood and
more. Being a paper crafter… my first thought was a quilt card. (Now that’s a quilt I can make.)
Quilt Card Supplies Used:
- ColorBox® Background Basics by Ann Butler Basket 1 and Picnic 1
- ColorBox Crafter’s® by Ann Butler Canyon, Ocean Breeze, Desert Sand, Evergreen, Deep Woods
- Blender Basics Paper Pack from Adorn It
Here’s how I made the card:
- Cut 1″ squares from the pre-stamped colored paper. Make extra so that some of them can be cut in 1/2 diagonally. I stamped the “basket” stamp several times on a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of paper to create my background piece.
- I made a 5″ x 5″ scored grid to glue my 1″ squares on. You don’t necessarily need to make a grid, you could actually glue it right onto the background piece. I found it easier to arrange and re-arrange my squares on the grid before gluing. It also helped me keep the squares straight when gluing.
- Once pattern is glued down, create secondary pattern by adding cut 1/2″ squares.
- Adhere quilt card onto 5 1/2″ stamped square and additional layers. Finished card is 6″ x 6″.
