Techniques class this month was focused on faux quilting.

I used to do a lot of quilting.   That’s why my email address is  cherquilt@aol.com.   My shelves that are now filled with stamping supplies were filled by color with fabrics.  While I loved quilting, it was pretty time consuming and not as social an activity as my stamping.

I love the idea of sitting down and finishing projects in one class.  I love the idea of lots of stampers coming and going.   Many giving me a hug when they come and when they leave.  Where in this crazy world do you find so much love and mutual admiration?  I’ve said this many times:  I LOVE MY JOB!!

This month I did a flash back and we made 5 cards with a quilting theme.  Here are a couple for you to take a look at:

???????????????????????????????All my stampers know that I love the color sahara sand.  On this card I paired it up with pink pirouette.   I used the stamp sets Six Sided Sampler and Butterfly Basics.  I also used some of that beautiful designer paper from the Spring catalog, Something Borrowed.  Some of the hexagons are popped up with dimensionals for added interest.  I did get a little sponge happy and sponged all the edges, (except for the butterfly) with saraha sand.

Here’s card #2:

???????????????????????????????The story behind this card is that I cut about 80 pieces of the triangle dsp for another design, however, I cut them the wrong size!  So, when you are handed lemons……redesign a new card using all those little pieces of  dsp!  My stampers attached each of the dsp pieces to whisper white cs and ran it through the Big Shot in the Zig Zag embossing folder.  For those that wanted a baby card they made it as shown.  For those who didn’t need a baby card, we put petite petals flowers on the old olive center.  The dsp used is from the Sweet Taffy collection.

Well, hope you all are stamping away.  Don’t forget to check out the retirement list.  Some items are already sold out so, hit that red button on the right and get your order in sooner vs. later!

Happy Stamping!
