Hello Everyone. Hope you are all well. I am still making note cards to send as either encouragement or thinking of you. Everyone love getting a card or a note in the mail. I think it is even more true now with the current world situation.
This post is a little late as National Quilting Day was yesterday and this design is inspired by several of my family members who are incredible quilters. I have a DIL and 2 sisters that I am in awe of with there amazing designs and quilting skills.
I will be sharing two cards this is one, that was inspired by a challenge that I will be linking this card to, and a bonus card. The challenge details are below.
On with the design and ingredients.
The card is design is intended to be an encouragement card…kinda like take it one day at a time…instead it is one stitch at a time.
Paper: Neenah 80# white, Pale yellow, Black and apple green card stock.
Ink/coloring medium: Versafine Onyx black, Versamark, Arteza watercolor pencils and Dandilion Paint Co. Liquid watercolor for the splatters.
Stamps: Spellbinders – #handmade.
Dies: MFT stitched ric rac, MFT stitch flowers, MFT buttons. Neat and Tangle scallop dies, Darice nested squares and Gina Marie cover plate.
Embellishments: Clear embossing powder and Linen Cord.
The colorful photo from the challenge inspired the above colorful card design. The second card is a bonus card as I had stamped the quilt square twice so why not make another design.
I am sure the quilt block has a design name and I know my quilting family members probably know it but sorry to say I do not. Either way it makes a pretty card and I could see it would be lovely adorning a bed somewhere too.
Similar design. I Used Distress Oxides for background and the heart. I outlined the quilt block with a gold gel pen and added gold gel pen dots all over the background. Added some Nuvo Crystal glaze to the heart.
