Well you asked for it, you got it…Toyota! OK, not really a Toyota, but how about how to do the quilt card that I showed yesterday.
I had a workshop today, and it was so much fun, and the girls were so sweet, and I got to see some familiar faces, and some brand new faces too. They got to make this quilt card, and they really enjoyed it. I also wanted to say hi to all of them, I was surprised that many of them read my blog too. How fun is that?
So when I came home to check the old blog – should I call it blah-g, sometimes I sure do blah!blah!blah!….ok, so anyway a few of you wanted to know how I did it, so here goes.
Now remember I did not invent this, I learned how to do this from my friend Cindy, and she may have seen it somewhere else. I am not sure, I will totally give credit if someone tells me. So I looked on Cindy's blog and she said she seen it here on Bev's blog - so till someone says different, I am leaving it as so…
These are the supplies you will need: Bordering Blue Ink, Basic Black Ink, brads, flower fusion, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White cardstock, Cute and Curly stamp, black journaler, sponge, snail, 1 1/4" square punch, curly label punch, top note die, cuttlebug folder, big shot
Some of you wondered why I didn't use my paper cutter, and I was like doh! But the more I thought of it I was like no way would my squares all be the same, you miss the 1 1/4" mark on your cutter and the squares would not match, so by using the punch….the punch is what it is (MAMMa always says that – it is what it is…I love her), and they will all be the same.
You want three rows of 4 squares.
TIP: I took a white gel pen and made a little circle mark by each tip of the top note die, it makes it a little easier to see…of course you can't see it very well in the picture.
Is that not the fastest quilt thing you have ever done? I don't quilt, but I think that is pretty fast.
Step 10: Using a black journaler, add some stitch marks, I used good old x marks but you could do whatever you like. If you are really energetic, I wonder if you could really stitch it? Hmmm…I dont' know maybe the stitches would break in the next step…I guess you could try it, its only paper right? and a lot of snail…
Ok, so this pictures looks like I totally am missing a digit….it was that freak cuttlebug accident of 1982! Tragic, it made headlines…awww not really…I may not have all my brain cells, but I do have all me digits!
Assemble and decorate the rest of the card, and here is the finished product…
OK so you know I can't finish off my blog without mentioning American Idol. So the 3 people that I voted on sailed on through, I was so very happy. Jeff was like I voted for this one too, and I said did you call and he said no, and I said well then you really didn't vote did you? Ha!
But at the end when they had Danny (my man!!!) and Tatiana up there, I was like if they pick Tatianna a.k.a. Sanjina over Danny, my Tuesdays and Wednesdays would open up, cause I would not watch it anymore…boy oh boy aren't they glad they choose right…and me too cause I love this commercial and they showed it tonight, Jeff had not seen it before.
I would love to also work at a place that did commercials, some are hilarious and you wonder what they are thinking…or perhaps drinking when they are coming up with them.
Well I am hitting the hay, thanks so much for stopping in, I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial, and have a great Thursday!
