Good Monday Morning and welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Happy Valentine's Day
Today's idea is to make a quilt background. There is a great tutorial at
by Jenna Barber. She does an excellent job in showing you exactly how to put this quilted background together.
I used papers from Basic Gray. The pink paper was run through a Cuttlebug folder for texture. Picking the papers is half the fun. The hearts in the center of the quilt and the scroll on the embossed background paper are both stamps by Hero Arts. I made this card into and easel card and the inside hearts are a the nested scalloped hearts by Spellbinders. The sentiment is also Hero. Pearls and a bow finished this card off.
One note, I embossed the cream background, but left the end unembossed so I could stamp the scroll along the edge. Just something different for interest.
Also, instead of using graph paper to set up the quilt, I used a 5x5 piece of white card stock, cut all my pieces into 1 inch squares and adhered them to the square starting at the bottom left corner and working my way across one row at a time. When I completed the square, I trimmed each side ever so slightly just to even up the edges.
Hope you have a chance to try this quilting background. Thanks for stopping by today. Until later.........
