New England Stamper: Patchwork Card

June 20, 2010

Patchwork Card

I have been really busy stamping and not just enjoying the fabulous weather we're having, but I can't share any of the projects for another couple of months because it's a surprise.....sorry!

However, I did stamp a few cards for fun this weekend. I can't believe that the June/July 2010 issue of the TJ newsletter has been out for a couple of weeks and this is the first chance I've had to try any of the techniques! The first one is called Patchwork.

I created the patchwork panel by sponging brown (Soft Suede) and blue (Baja Blue) inks onto c/stock, using post-it notes to mask of the different areas. I stamped a script background over the entire piece, then blew the dust of my sewing machine and zig zag stitched the seams.

The bird image from Artistic Outpost was lightly water colored with SU inks and mounted onto a new SU color c/stock called Early Espresso. The 1/8" taffeta ribbon is in the same color and it's so rich and dark, I know it's going to be one of my new go-to colors. I LOVE it!

Have a wonderful week!

I'm always impressed when people put stitching on their cards, but this one is really exceptional!

Beautiful card, Ali! Such a great background technique - sometimes the simplest ones have such a great impact - and the stitching is a perfect addition as well!!
