2 Crazy Quilts

Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend filled with all the things you love the most, family, friends and stamping! I sure did, we had a great time at my demo's house on Saturday! Hey girls!!!!

I have two cards to show you today, both done with my new set, "Quilt Quips"! I really love it!

The first card is done with Jen's Sketch for You to Try.

My card is a 5" square of baja breeze. I also used the new specialty paper "Sweet Slumber" It is so cool! Love the colors in it. I first stamped my quilt squares on some 140 lb weight watercolor paper and colored them in with the colors from the paper, ruby red, so saffron, baja and Sahara sand. I also stamped my sentiment on watercolor paper and cut out the oval with my coluzzle. the Scallop oval is cut with nesties. I also drug out the sewing machine for a little zig-zag on my card. The brads I had in my stash for ever and they match perfectly.

This next one is my favorite of the two:

I have been planning this layout in my head every since I ordered this set. It is fairly plain and simply but reminds me of a quilt I have of my grandmothers.

The quilt squares are again all done with watercolor paper and pierced alot. The base is Ruby red card stock and I followed that with a piece of watercolor paper and then another piece of ruby I scored with my score pal all around the squares. The card measures 4-1/2 by 5 inches. I marked out my design on the side pieces with a pencil and then used the piercing tool and mat pack to poke the holes and then erased all pencil lines. I used black brads in the center of the "quilted" pieces. I hope you like my quilts I made to show you today.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
