Our sponsor this week is the fantastic one-stop-shop, Simon Says Stamp. I used their Soft Navy Cardstock for the frame of my quilt as well as the blue cardstock matting. The hearts from the Texting stamp set were stamped on patterned paper with Versamark ink and embossed with SSS Fine Detail Embossing Powder in white. The hearts were fussy cut and accent the verse panel. The finished card is just under 5" x 7". Small pearls accent the quilt top.
When I stamped and cut the hearts, I had enough to do a little interior decorating.
As usual when using a quilt die, I had enough pieces to make multiple quilts. I also made these two A2 cards and used the Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks stamp set for the sentiment. I kept these cards flat for easy mailing.
This past weekend, a good friend and I attended the StampAway show in Cincinnati. While there I was able to stock up on some Gina Marie Dies. This Quilt Die #4- Circle Die is my favorite of all her quilt dies. It cuts so easily and is so fun to paper piece. I purchased a metal cutting plate at the Our Daily Bread Designs booth and when I used it with this die I was amazed at how easily all the little pieces came out of the die. If you haven't checked out Gina Marie Dies, I'd highly recommend them. I love to support small businesses and I was thrilled to see her booth busy all day long.
