Challenge #387 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Inspired by Quilting.

January 26th is Visit your Local Quilt Shop Day so here at Shopping Our Stash we want you to be inspired by Quilting.  I have done some quilting, not huge queen size quilts but some place mats and a purse.  I really dug deep into my stash for a lattice sizzix die, I can't remember when I used it last and the patterned paper is a couple of years old. It has been so long since I have crafted anything,  things got a little busy over Christmas, some "bugs" and I had a lot of trouble getting back into the swing of the challenges.  I am so happy that I could join the rest of the design team for the challenge.

Very simple way to make a quilt card, I die cut the lattice and glued it to the patterned paper and embossed it, layered on early expresso glued it to pink which I machine stitched it to the expresso layer. This is a 5 1/4 inch square card. 

Close up of the embossing and the hello which is from the playing around with new dies bucket.

The above card was my Plan B since I had not located the Gina Marie Quilt Die that I planned using, Murphy's Law says as soon as you finish the project you will find what you were looking for and I found it, since coming home from the summer at the cottage I haven't managed to get everything in the proper place. So here is my plan A.

So many possibilities with this die, I decided to go with neutrals and I made two.

I used some ancient double sided paper from Stampin'up long retired

Just to show the difference when you reverse the patterned papers.

I'm enter this in:
Seize the Birthday ~~ Anything goes.

I hope I have inspired you to join the challenge at Shopping Our Stash, I'm looking forward to seeing your Quilted project.

Love the neutrals on your other cards, the pattern papers are so beautiful.

A three-fer!! All of these cards are amazing! Love the pink/brown combo and quilt die on the first. The other two cards are equally elegant! Great job!

These are so fantastic! I feel the same way I felt about Chris's cards: jealous you got to make these! Those quilt dies give you like your own crafty puzzle! I can't believe on the second set of cards you've made the difference when you use different colors! I thought it was a whole other quilt die!
