Besides cooking and baking, my first crafting love was quilting.  I never did as much with it as I had hoped since I was busy working for pay at the time, and then I had my babies.  Paper crafting fulfils the same need to play with pattern and colour, on a much smaller scale and shorter time span – perfect for my life now!

This card uses inch blocks of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make a paper quilt.  After glueing the squares to the Blushing Bride layer I ran it through the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder to simulate a quilted look.  A few more layers of cardstock and a sentiment cut with the Well Written Dies and done.  This is a nice technique to show off and use up scraps of our retiring DSPs.

Let’s get together and craft via Zoom!  Shannon West, a Stampin’ Up! staff member, created a fun template to transform 2 half sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP) into 11 cards.  I will provide the template/measurements in a tutorial (for either Letter (inches) or A4 (centimetres) cardstock, and we can all meet up on Zoom to cut and assemble together!  This is a great way to use up some of your paper hoard and get a bunch of cards ready to send out or give as a gift pack.
