Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

Birthday Quilt

This birthday card was for one of the Giggler's, Renee'.  She loves to quilt & works in a quilt shop so how could I not make her a quilt card?

I started with a SU Very Vanilla mat embossed using We R Memory Keepers Quilted Embossing Folder then adhered it to the SU Marina Mist card base  The Papertrey Ink Quilters Sampler Stamp Set squares are individual stamps so I positioned them on my Misti so I could re-stamp if necessary.  They were inked with SU Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi & Regal Rose markers, lightly spritzed with water & stamped on watercolor paper.  Once the quilt squares were matted, I popped it up with thin dimensionals.  I used Impression Obsession Birthday Top Edgers Die for the sentiment...I love these cute dies (& they're perfect for the pop-up box cards)!  After matting the die cut, it was popped up with thin dimensionals too. 

I love doing quilt cards & hope you enjoyed my project!  TFL!
