Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Christmas Quilt for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster playing with today’s color challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!

This week’s colors were a bit of a challenge for me…

I looked around for some inspiration and stumbled on my stack of Quilted Christmas DSP.  All Real Red and Garden Green.  So…I pulled out the Christmas Quilt stamp set and Quilt Builder Framelits and…take a look-see:

I started with a Garden Green pattern and Fast Fuse’d it to a Lemon Lime Twist mat for the card front.

My sentiment, from Christmas Quilt, is stamped in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White.   I added a stamped tree image in Lemon Lime Twist, and then stamped the dotted tree outline image in Garden Green.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Quilt Top TIEF.  I used Fast Fuse to add it to the card front.

On a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped the tree image again, this time in Garden Green.  Then I added the second image over that in Lemon Lime Twist and cut it out with the matching die from the Quilt Builder Framelits.  Then I adhered it to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.  This framelits set also has a tiny little star die, so I used it to cut a star from Real Red paper in the Quilted Christmas DSP stack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I adhered one of the Stitched Felt Embellishments with Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another tree from Christmas Quilt in Lemon Lime Twist with a Garden Green dotted border.  I stamped the image a second time, on a sticky note, and cut it out as a mask.  With the first tree covered, I added a second tree in Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist.  A Real Red star tops them off.  Then I edged the whole panel with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a couple more Christmas Quilt trees on the front – complete with a Real Red star…

…and I added more of the Quilted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a cute little Suite of goodies – with lots of design possibilities.  Hope you like!
