When I was visiting Cindy's blog the other day, I was intrigued by her gorgeous bleeding hearts card. As I read further it was for a Flourishes challenge, Celebrating Home. The challenge is to find something in your home that inspires you. This is such a terrific idea for a challenge. Well I had just put out my new quilt and I thought, wow I could make a card from that. I don't have any Flourish stamps yet...but the ladies say we can play anyway. So playing I am and here is what I came up with.
Because I don't have any Flourish stamps, I decided to go with teabag folding. I couldn't find quite the right tile to use, this is as close as I could get to the colors in my quilt. I used the pattern for the triple layer star. I used this beautiful white textured paper (hard to see in the pic)and sewed quilt lines on it. This quilt is actually made exactly like teabag folding. Each diamond in the quilt is cut from the exact spot on the fabric 8 times using a large diamond shaped template made of heavy plastic and teabag folding is done by using the exact tile 8 times.
Here is my inspiration for the card.
Thank you to the ladies at Flourishes for letting anyone play and for the chance to win some wonderful "new release" stamps.
Have a fabulous Monday everyone and thanks for stopping by.
