Quilted Card

 Hi All,

Now this was fun!!  This week's Featured Stamper over on SCS is Tracy, aka "Whoistracy".  I was drawn to all her quilt cards and decided to give it a try.  I chose her "Quilted Books" card to case.

I picked up this Sizzix Westminster 1-1/2" Hexagons die at the last scrapbook convention I was at and never really did much with it.  Now I know what to do with it!  It made doing this card really fast!

I used scraps of DP I had from the Basic Grey "Capella" 6x6 paper pack and stacked them onto the die (it was 6 different designs) all at once and ran them through.  I glued them randomly down onto some copy paper, then cut it down to a 4x5-1/4" panel for my card.  I added texture to it with an EF (click on the pic for close-up).

I stamped the pitcher from "Studio Sketches" onto vanilla CS and lightly highlighted it with Copics.  Distressed the card base and the image with THoltz Vintage Paper ink, then assembled the card using Tracy's sketch.

Super fast with the help of the Sizzix die and Tracy's awesome design!  Congrats and thanks to Tracy!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
