Quilted card

Sarah wrote an article for the now closed Scrapsisters earlier this year showcasing ways to do quilted cards. I’d long wanted to try my hand at a sunburst card and decided that a quilted sunburst could be fun to do.

To ensure that all my rays fit each other, I started by making a template that I used to cut out all the rays. Then all I had to do was put the rays together and stitch along each place they met.

Where the rays met I added a sun consisting of layers of thread, vellum and cardstock. I stamped my message in the centre of the sun and then decorated with a few scattered sequins.

Stamp-a-faire 2015: Bridal Challenge

On Saturday Papetrey Ink hosted their fourth annual Stamp-a-fair which is an online all-day stamping event. I didn’t manage to do much during the week-end but I’ve now finished my card for the first of the challenges: The Bridal Challenge. Here you had to create a card using all white with only a neutral colour for the sentiment.

I decided to use the Heart Cover Plate to diecut a piece of vellum that I cut down so that it would fit in the middle of my card. I stitched it to the card at the top and bottom leaving a few strands of thread visible at the top of the card.

To add some detail and interest I added four clusters of hearts, stitched them down and added some pearls to each cluster.

For the sentiment I diecut the word “celebrate” in a silver glitter paper and added to the card.


I’ve added this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
