Everyday Quilt

Here's another card showcasing one of the new Whipper Snapper December release cling mount sets. This card is made using Everday Quilt. I must admit, I am not a quilter. In fact, I barely even know how to turn on my sewing machine! But with these two sets, I can get the same look with rubber and ink ;0)

I tried to use bold, non traditional colors on this one and mounted them on black and then on white to make them stand out even more! The sentiment, also in the set, was set against the black ribbon so that it didn't get lost with everything else going on. I added the button and faux stitching (because as I said before, I am not a quilter and barely a seamstress) to go along with the theme of this card.

Here's a trick for you: Use little slivers of white scrap cardstock instead of thread in your buttons. It's easy to thread, you can make it whatever thickness you want, and if your like me there's PLENTY of it lying around :0)

I'm enjoying the last week of Christmas vacation preparing for the new year - out with the old, in with the new!! Cleaning out closets, drawers, taking down Christmas decorations, cleaning and purging the stamp room. However, I may have to take a break and find some stamping time too ;0)

Have a wonderful end to this year.


  1. Wow this looks lovely!! Love the colours and a great sentiment! hugs Marley

  2. I love the bright colors against the black. So lovely! I love that sentiment. I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas.

  3. What a pretty card! I love the idea of threading buttons with cardstock - that would probably save me tons of time and stress! TFS :o)

  4. Oh yea love the colors with the black nice choice! I wish I could quilt, but my stamps will have to work for me as well!

  5. Randee... Hey... long time no talk it seems like! Both of your quilt cards are great!! I don't know how to sew or anything either! I want to but I guess I am too lazy to learn! Hope you had a great Christmas!

  6. Oh love it! The black boarders really make each quilt square pop. Lovely colouring too.
