Fall Quilt Card…stenciling with ink

Fall Quilt Card…stenciling with ink

a quick and easy fall card.

This week the Xyron® Design Team partnered up with Clearsnap® the maker of Colorbox® inkpads and more for some fun projects.

Here’s what I used:                  (*affiliate link)

Directions:

Place the stencil onto yellow cardstock and secured it with removable painters tape.

Ink the cardstock using the blending tool and Amber, Turtle and Cranberry Colorbox Inks.

The Art Screen stencil cleans up easily with water.

Cut the stenciled cardstock into small squares.    (Mine were slightly smaller than 1 inch.)

Place the squares through the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker* for the perfect little sticker.

Adhere all the card layers using the Xyron Mega Runner*.

For added detail…draw in small stitch lines using a fine point marker and glue teeny tiny buttons into the center of each square..

Crazy Quilt Card

Crazy Quilt Card 2

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.)

Crafter's Ink 87508-Canyon

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:

Here’s how I made the card:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Once pattern is glued down, create secondary pattern by adding cut 1/2″ squares.
  4. Adhere quilt card onto 5 1/2″ stamped square and additional layers.  Finished card is 6″ x 6″.
