Quilt Card!

Hi! It's a beautiful day here in St. Louis!! I'm looking forward to soaking up some Vitamin D this afternoon for a few minutes or so! I love the warmth of the sun when the temperature is not too hot.

Here is a card that we will be creating tonight at my stamp club. My stamp club meets every month to get together and stamp. At first, we were going to take this month off, but then I decided to plan on a fun evening just for my stamp club members. I appreciate their friendship and loyalty so much! We will be stamping 3 different cards. Here is the first one. I will post the other 2 this weekend. So be sure to stop by for more inspiration!

I have seen so many cards using this "quilt" design, that I wanted to create one for myself. And I love how it turned out! I love the colors! Unfortunately the DSP that I used is retired. Bummer! But I have an entire pack still! It's a shame that I didn't use it while it was current. I know, it's a disease. I guess I'm afraid to use it in case I run out! LOL! Anyway, back to the card...I used a 5-1/2"x4-1/4" sheet of Whisper White. After punching my squares, I used my Glue Stick to adhere the squares to the WW. Then I ran it through my Big Shot and presto! Isn't it cute?

Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts
Ink: Regal Rose, So Saffron
Paper: So Saffron, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Georgia Peach DSP (retired)
Accessories: Top Note Die with Big Shot, 1-3/8" Square Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8", 1-1/4" & 3/4" Circle Punches, Soft Subtle Brads, Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Stick

Hope you are having a great Friday! TGIF! Have a great weekend!

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or need more explanation.
