Posts Tagged ‘Paper Piecing’

Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC590) on Splitcoast is an easy one w/ lots of possibilities. I thought I’d use this fabulous Dresden Quilt die along w/ the poinsettias dies to get an early start on some Christmas cards.

I die cut the quilt 3 times..one in white, one in pine green & one in a sheet of the Cozy Quilt paper. After piecing them all together, I attached to a white base die cut w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, then a larger pine green layer.

The poinsettia was die cut using the Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics dies & I used a stylus to add a little shape to them before attaching in the center of my quilt. The die cut Merry was added underneath w/ the Christmas attached to a large bow & added below.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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 well..live & 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.
