Quilt Card

The challenge on WeCraftCards this week is to plan for cooler weather and make a quilt card. The Monday SimonSaysStamp Blog challenge is to make a card with texture. I figure a quilt has lots of texture, so made sure the pieces of my quilt do have texture.

I have glitter paper, highly textured card, a couple of the pieces have embossing just on some of the images, there’s a super smooth piece, and I popped up the center pieces, as well as the butterfly at the top. Some of the patterned paper is DCWV, some is Echo Park, and some is “other”. The whole piece to the bottom left in the picture is alcohol ink on Yupo paper. Had lots of fun figuring this out and making it.

Here’s another one I did:

My husband got me a Spellbinder’s Glimmer machine for my birthday, so I used a die and foiled on the Spellbinder’s paper for the glimmer machine. I had trouble stamping and “coloring” a couple of images, as the ink doesn’t seem to dry on this paper and I didn’t think to heat it before I smeared it. Oops! So, on this one, I wanted to see if I could use Distress Oxide Ink with water and just smoosh color onto my foiled piece. It worked quite well. However, I don’t suggest running a dry cloth over the foil until it is completely and totally dry. The paper didn’t like being that wet and peeled up a bit. So, if you’re going to watercolor, let it air dry for a while, then go on. I am loving learning to use my new machine!

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today.

  1. Your quilt card is awesome. You did a great job getting the hexagons nice and even. It has wonderful texture. Your glimmered card is lovely. I’m glad you’re enjoying your new toy.

  2. Beautiful quilt! The textures are lovely together. You did great with your foiling. I am still learning mine and I have had it for a year and a half. The cardstock is the key. I do not have the new cardstock you are using. I am going to try Hammermill that JM talks about and shows great results.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I got tried some of the Hammermill and it works wonderfully, too. My best friend wanted to make sure I had a good experience with it the first time I used it, so she gave me some of both kinds of paper, as well as a bit of the heat resistant acetate. Didn’t do so well on the acetate, but I’m still having fun and know it’s learning.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. I tried a couple different things and I think I liked this one best. I’ll try something else, next. Hey, have to try everything to find what works best and what I like, right? That means I must make crafting time. 😉

  3. Lovely quilt card. The patterns and textures as well as all of those evenly arranged hexagon pieces look beautiful. Have fun with your glimmer machine. It’s a great way to keep celebrating your birthday.
