Fresh and Modern for the Holidays: Quilted Christmas

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

I had so much fun playing in last week's TGIF Color Combo Challenge and was pleased as punch that my Mini Pizza Box project was selected as one of the winners, such a huge compliment, especially considering it was my second blog post EVER. Talk about pumping a girl's tires, perfect incentive to get me to play again!

This week's TGIF Challenge #124 is a sketch - I love using sketches as they help me figure out one of the things I struggle with the most when designing, the layout! Check out the sketch:

I've been longing to play with the new Quilted Christmas suite in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue and this sketch was the perfect jumping off point. I love everything in this suite, the stamp set, framelits, the paper...aaaaah, it's all so gorgeous! I decided to go a little non-traditional with the colours for this Christmas card:

I chose the colour palette based on the square of designer series paper I drooled over loved the most in this paper stack. I thought these colours worked so well together - so fresh and bright! This paper stack might be my fave out of the Holiday Catalogue - so versatile and perfect for any occasion, any project. I used the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a subtle, yet beautiful texture to the card. I created the multi-coloured stamped image by using three different ink colours (Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green) and sponge daubers. So easy to do and packs such a punch, don't you think? The little flowers are cut out with a framelit from the Quilt Builder Framelits and were too cute not to use!

I have a feeling I won't be putting this bundle away for a while...there are so many possibilities with this product suite! Check out this video featuring the Quilted Christmas Suite and all the gorgeous projects that can be created with it
