"When life throws you scraps......."
Now doesn't that get you thinking???? Of course, paper come sto mind , but what about quilts?T this week Lisa , one of the uber-talented ladies at Friday Mashup, is encouraging us to do a little spring cleaning ...... of our stash! And while your at it, why don't you try out quilting on your cards?
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
- Make a project using the "Quilted Cards Technique".
- Or Make a project using "Something that's been forgotten (sitting in your stash forever)".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Quilted card with something you've forgotten about".
You can find the link to a tutorial on quilting here.
Ok, I have a confession..... I am absolutely awful at quilting!!! I tried , oh how I tried, but I can never seem to make all those scraps of fabric look like anything like a pattern!!! Sooo, when I saw this challenge , I was doubtful I'd like paper quilting , but, whattya know! It's easy peasy!!! I found a link on SCS for a variety of quilting patterns and selected this pattern called Southern Pine. Next I searched through my retired stash of Stampin'Up! dsp. Here's what I made....
This reminds me of Grandma's old fashioned quilt. The hardest part of this quilt was finding coordinating paper! I used a stamp set from Flourish called Motherly Love for the sentiment.
The papers are all retired SU from variuos dsp packs. This technique is such a great way to use up all your old papers.... I'm already planning another card!
That's my Friday Mashup card ...... thanks for stopping by !!!
