Gallery Idol-Round 3




Yeah I am pretty sure that it was me you heard! That was me screaming with excitement that I had made it to the next round! Thanks so much to everyone for keeping me around!

This week our challenge is fabric! I am excited to share with you a little quilting/card project! I wouldn't call myself a quilter but I do know my way around a sewing machine! :)  So here is my card for this week....

It was pretty easy to do! These little blocks I had from a project that I started years ago...I was going to make a quilt for my dtr and just never finished this one!  So I found a big pile of squares in my sewing box and went to work!

I sewed together several small blocks!  I adhered the finished quilt block to the face of my card with ATG.  I only ATG'd the seams so the quilt would have a "quilted" or "puffy" look from the face of the card.  Using a larger rectangle nestie, I made a window in another piece of white cardstock! After running it through my Big Shot with the Canvas Impression plate, I stamped the sentiment on vellum and attached that vellum strip to the back of the frame!  Then I put the frame on the face of the card  with Pop Dots!

Last, I stamped a little duck image from PTI's Baby Bitty Blessings and added that to the vellum strip!
