Knit Happens! Yes m’am,  it does…and if you like to have some wine while you won’t be pretty. Just sayin’. Anyway, these are the colors for today’s Color Challenge (CC624) on Splitcoast. Daffodil, garden green & blackberry. And it seems I have a slight aversion to the blackberry. It’s an odd color, hard to work with & harder to match. The only think that came to mind was this cute little digi & I figured I’d delegate the troublesome color to the ground area. 
After printing it out, I colored it then die cut it. The dk purple bg (closest I could come to the blackberry color) was embossed w/ a knit pattern folder & it was pretty much done.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. This is going to one of my knitty friends who also happens to like my cards 😛

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Helen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS495) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful, colorful gallery. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case because I have the same dies. So I kept the Dresden quilt die background & layout, but I used different papers, different colors & made mine a Christmas card.

I die cut the quilt 3 times w/ 3 different pieces of paper then put my quilt all together. I also die cut the poinsettia layers and attached it in the center of my quilt. The greeting was added below & I used part of the Filigree Frames to accent the ends.

Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs April release! Aren’t the Quilt images & dies fabulous? And the papers are beautiful!

For my quilty/sewy card, I’m featuring this cute, cute, cute little sewing machine & greeting (from A Time to Mend), Log Cabin Quilt die & some papers from the Americana Quilt & Old Glory collections. Since the greeting is 1 line repeated 3 times, I had the idea to add 3 sewing machines in 3 colors but to get the best impression on this solid image, I stamped it w/ the Memento inks onto a semi-glossy photo type paper. It helped tremendously to have it in my Misti so I could stamp it more than once to get full coverage. For the print version, I inked just the outline of it & stamped it onto the paper then stamped it again on the photo paper & paper pieced it. I will mention, after I fussy cut that tiny outline, I realized it would have been much easier to just fussy cut the inside & attach it over the the other image. Oh & learn!

I die cut the Log Cabin Quilt 4 times..1 white, 1 blue & 2 different prints, then arranged them inside the solid blue version outline. A large square was die cut out of the white front & placed on top of the quilt w/ all the fussy cut sewing machines on top. I used the Misti again to stamp the greeting 1 line at a time using the blue & red Versafine inks. Some buttons (from the Matting Circle dies) were cut, stacked & attached.

Here’s a look at the inside.
