Thinking of You Quilt of Colors


Hello stamping friends! I was excited to work with these three colors this week. I knew I wanted to make a patchwork quilt background highlighting them. The square shaped Stitched Framelit works wonderfully for this technique!


After die cutting and adhering all the squares down onto a piece of Whisper White card stock, I turned my attention to the focal point. With the symmetrical straight lines of the squares, I opted to use a circle shaped Stitched Framelit to soften all the lines. The new set, High Tide was staring at me in the face whispering softly, "Ink me. Ink me." When a stamp set talks to you like, all you can do is listen. I stamped the water in Pool Party ink and the silhouettes of the birds wading in the water in Chocolate Chip ink. I love how you can manipulate our photopolymer stamps! In this case I used words from the Crazy About You set and arched them to mimic the circular shape. The banner across the bottom is from the hostess set, Time of Year and also helps to add softness and a bit of whimsy to the card. We would love to see what you create with these three colors. Hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see other ideas for inspiration and then share your own! Happy Stamping!
