Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #3 – Inky Blues card

Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #3 – Inky Blues card

Welcome to Bronwyn’s third Birthday Blog hop!

We’re a group of stamping friends who are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! This is our inspiration pic for tonight’s hop – the current Stampin’ Up! range of blues.

I love all these blues and wanted to use as many of them as possible on my card so I decided to make a paper quilt card using some of the paper patterns from Stampin’ Up!’s Butterfly Kisses, Lovely Linen, Tea Boutique, Sun Prints and 2022-24 In Colour Designer Series Papers.

Creating a paper quilt card is very easy and – you just need a paper trimmer to cut your DSP into precise squares. I cut one and a half inch squares and then arranged the DSP at an angle onto half a sheet of A4 cardstock (A5)– this size makes two paper card quilts.

Once I’d adhered the squares using multipurpose glue, I turned it over and trimmed the overhang DSP back to the A5 cardstock base.

I then cut my patchwork layer in half, trimmed it and layered it to onto my card base using the following measurements.

  • Card base – Basic White cardstock 14.9 x 10.5cm (half a sheet of A4, folded in half)
  • Basic Back layer – 14.4 x 10 cm
  • Quilted paper layer – 13.9 x 9.5cm

I then used a stamp from the the Stitchery Stamp Set to add “stitches” to my quilt in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

The final touch was embossing with the stitched greenery die – it really makes the patchwork card look like it is quilted!

The “Thank you” sentiment and matching die is from the new Charming Sentiments Bundle, which includes the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set and the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies.

I stamped the “Thank You” stamp in Versamark ink onto Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.
