Welcome to week seven of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!
Bubble Bath is a gorgeous light pink that’s in the Subtles family, sitting somewhere in between Fresh Freesia and Moody Mauve.
My three Bubble Bath cards are all paper quilt cards that feature the Delightfully Eclectic DSP, one of the Designer Series Papers on sale at 15% off for the entire month of June (the entire list of papers on sale is listed here).
By only using four of these DSP designs, I’ve narrowed my colour pallette to Bubble Bath, Misty Moonlight, Garden Green and Basic White – with just a tiny touch of Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze in the selected DSP patterns.
If you’ve never you ever made a paper quilt card before it’s such a fun technique for using DSP. I’ve created three different paper quilt cards this week, however there are as many ways to make this style of card as there are ways to make quilts!
This “Thinking of you” card is a cathedral windows card, named after the cathedral windows style of quilts it looks like. It has a lot of dimension as you can see more clearly in this side-on photo.
I’ve used the 1 3/4″ circle punch (you can also use dies) to cut Basic White cardstock circles as I wanted the effect of the white edges against the Misty Moonlight layer.
Insert squares of DSP inside the circles and use your fingers and your bone folder to fold the edges of the circle around the squares of DSP, creating the square cathedral window shape.
The colour of these pink Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins are actually listed on the packet as Petal Pink, but I think they match Bubble Bath perfectly.
My “Happy Birthday” card uses the the Inked & Tiled Punch Pack. These punches are designed to slot into each other so they are ideal for making a paper quilt.
No folding or measuring required for this paper quilt! Simply arrange the punched out pieces into your preferred quilt design, glue them onto a layer of Basic White cardstock and adhere your quilt to your card base.
The “Hello” card uses dies from the Patchwork Pieces dies, the Stylish Shapes dies and the Radiating Stitches dies. Seriously, how many different dies can I use on the one card, LOL!
Die cut four different DSP patterns using the Patchwork Pieces die and then arrange them in a symmetrical design, gluing alternating DSP pieces onto a cardstock layer.
The Misty Moonlight base layer and the Misty Moonlight circle layer under the sentiment are die cut with the Radiating Stitched dies – an online only product. The Hello sentiment is die cut using the smallest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies.
All three cards use sentiments from the “Go To Greetings” stamp set, stamped in Misty Moonlight. I thought the soft feminine script of these sentiments really suited the colour pallette and DSP patterns on my quilt cards.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kathryn Ruddick – I can’t wait to see what Kathryn has made this week!
