Friday Mashup!! #51

Hello and Happy Friday!! Great seeing you here again! Are you ready for another Friday Mashup challenge? Lisa is our hostess this week...check it out:
  1. Make a projected using the "Quilted card technique"
  2. Or make a project using "Something that's been forgotten" (in your stash forever!)
  3. Or Mash it Up and make a "Quilted card project using something that has been forgotten"

Well, let's face it...we all have something in our stash that has been untouched and perhaps even forgotten, right? For many of us, that includes stacks of pattern paper, which is PERFECT for the quilted card technique!

My eye caught a package of Bella Rose dsp. Love this stuff, and I will be sad when it is gone! I cut strips from 2 sheets, and used both sides of each to make a pattern, taping the strips down on a scrap piece of card stock. I then cut it out with my Top Note die in the Big Shot, then took my chocolate chip marker to make faux stitching. Note the stitching is uneven..that's what any real stitching would look like if I ever tried to sew! LOL! I placed my "quilt" on a riding hood red card base that has a layer of pink pirouette embossed with perfect polka dots. I also included a strip of the rose pattern of the dsp between the pink and the quilt. My image is from Simple of my first and favorite stamp sets! I don't know when I last used it. It is a 2 (actually 3) step stamp, which loksgreat when you use markers. The lined image was stamped in chocolate chip. The next stamp has pink pirouette and lucky limeade. The final stamp has riding hood red and pear pizazz. Love the dimension! I punched it out with a scallop circle, and layered on the larger scallop circle, highlighting with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, on a word window punch. Finally, I added this fun, retired polka dot ribbon. Last I checked, you can get some of this on the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack!

I hope you join us this week! Dig deep in your stash...have some fun! Check out the other DT projects for some inspiration. Be sure to use keyword FM51 in your online gallery. Can't wait to see what you create!

  1. Fabulous card, Kim! I love that paper; it made a gorgeous quilt card. Now I'm going to have to go see if I have any left in my stash! :)

  2. Love that you added stitching to your quilting. Very authentic!


  3. This is aboslutely gorgeous Kim, I love it! That paper is wonderful here and to be honest, I never thought much of that DSP but after seeing what you did here, I might have to change my mind! That bow is just perfect! Oh and I have to say that I thought you had really done stitching on your card....what a great idea! I'm going to have to remember that for future use!

  4. Love all the fabulous blended colours and details.

  5. Lovely! It looks like a quilt I'd love to have in my home.
