Quilted Elegance

My mojo was really cranking when I planned my swaps for the Minneapolis Regional Event in February. I was on fire! I love the Elegant Soiree paper and thought, "How can I make this into a quilt?" I pulled out my marker the part you want technique and designed this:

Stamps: Clearly for You, In Stitches Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Vintage Trinkets, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch

To do this, I punched six 1 3/8" squares and adhered them to the Early Espresso Background. Next, I used a marker on the stitch I wanted. I carefully rolled the stitches onto my cardstock. I adhered this to my Vanilla layer and then ran that through the Embossing Folder. Finally, I layered up my card!

Happy Stamping!



  1. Very cute Sara! I wasn't sure I had the patience to do that with that wheel, but it definitely paid off for you!

  2. What a gorgeous quilt card! I love the stitching and the embossing!!

  3. WOW! This is really pretty! I knew that I would never ink the wheel that way so I unmounted mine! Now I have to use it again!

  4. What Shelley said - I unmounted mine, too. This is simply "Elegant"!

  5. Great swap card! Love all the details.

  6. I love this!!! I bought that wheel to use this way, but I haven't inked it up yet. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  7. Fantabulous card! And what Shelley and Cindy said. Unmount this wheel, you won't regret it!!


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
