Faux Quilting

Hello everyone, today I'm showing you a card I made using a kind of faux quilting. What I have done is cut out pieces of DSP from the Subltes Paper DSP Pack using my 1 3/4" square punch and glued them down to a piece of white cardstock. I trimmed the white card stock back leaving a small edge around the patterned pieces. Then I have run the white piece with its glued on squares through the big shot using the Square Lattice folder. It gives the illusion of material. I rouched up the edges of the white piece with my cutter kit distressing tool. Then using the paper piercer tool and the mat pack template sheet, I punched small holes all around the edge and then used my white gel pen to draw small lines to give the effect of stitching. You could of course use a real sewing machine with cotton to achieve a more realistic result.
I finally added my sentiment in the middle and popped a button and ribbon bow in the corner to finish it off.
I also used the new stitches wheel to put a faint background on the So Safron cardstock.
Happy Creating

Well I'm back from our Convention in Melbourne - five wonderful days of spending time with our fellow demos from Australia and NZ. I had an absolute ball learning all about our products and seeing sneek peaks of what's coming in our next Idea Book and Catalogue.
Here is a piccie of the Roomy Gifts I made for my three room mates. It's not clear in the picture but I clear embossed the scroll stamp on the coloured part of the box and it looked very elegant. Antique brads were popped on top to add to the look. Each night we gave each other pillow gifts as well. These were the two I made. Filled the milk carton with musk lollies and the other little box with Moon Rocks (chocolate filled candy).
This was one of my swaps for convention and I received so many nice ones in return. It's a great way to get new ideas.The other swap I made was the butterfly card in my previous post below.
This is Genelle Little, a fellow team member from Gladstone and one of my roomies. We had a great time. Here we are at the Awards Dinner on the Saturday Night. I earned myself a new stamp set, pin and a walk across the stage with a hug from Shelli Gardner along the way for my efforts of achieving $20,000 in sales for the year.
I had an absolute ball meeting fellow demos and catching up with some I met from Sydney last year. We had three days of convention and it was jam packed with fun, buying at memento mall and seeing WOW presentations from fellow demos. I especially liked Kirsty Brown and Tenealle Williams on the last day but all the ideas we picked up from the other ladies was fabulous. Not to mention getting some free new stamp sets from the next catalogue coming in September. You are going to love them.
Happy Stamping
