Quick & Easy Quilting

I have yet to stick my fingers into actual quilting but I tried my hand at ornament quilting this Christmas which turned out to be a breeze and you don't even have to touch a sewing machine. Well it was high time I tried a little paper quilting. LOVE IT! Oh how easy and satisfying. Punch out a bunch of squares and glue them to paper. Can't believe I have waited so long to make one of these.

I took the photos outside today to show you what a beautiful and sunny Winter day we are having today!

I added some texture to the "quilt" by running it through the Big Shot in an embossing folder and then sponged the edges a little with Crumb Cake.

I made this card for Pals Paper Arts this week for their "vintage" challenge #80. I also entered this in Clean & Simple Sketch #126. I know this is a far cry from CAS but I loved the sketch and it totally worked for this card.

So glad you stopped by! Have a great day!

Gorgeous Marlene!!! I just love your ribbon roses. The Vintage Brad in the center is perfect. I really need to try to make one of those. I'm sure they are much simpler than they look.


Your card is gorgeous. Beautiful colors and design.

Sharon Canter

This is a gorgeous card! I am going to try your quilting technique. Love the flower. Any tips on how to make it perfect like yours? I have tried, but mine just don't turn out very well.

Hands On

Thanks for your comment Sharon. That is only the second time i have tried one of those flowers so I'mnot sure I am an expert on them yet. i just punched 2 circles. One of c/s and one from the sticky sheets. I marked the center and started twisting from there. Hope this helps!
