I Dream Of You - Sleeping Under a Quilt - Love You

Yogi here today with a quilt background technique that I especially love doing... Also using decorative paper - Kanban - that I recently got.

I scored and folded my cream toned  card (5"w x 7"h).

Created a stencil from Graffix clear plastic cutting a 1.5" square in the center of a larger piece. Placed the stencil on the lower left hand edge of my Soft Finish cardstock and sponged Distress "Gathered Twigs" very lightly around the bottom and right edges of the stencil. Then went a little darker near the corner creating the shadow. Sponged some "Spun Sugar on the lower side (diagonally) and some "Fossilized Amber" on the upper side - very lightly. Added some little streak lines to mimic puckered shadows from a button. Moved the stencil over to the right and butting up to the square just colored, repeated the process. Continued with all the other squares.

Inked up a little flower stamp ( "Tea Pot Cup" set) using Distress markers ("Worn Lipstick" & "Lucky Clover"), misting with water and stamping, misting with water again and stamping a 2nd generation. Added white pearls at each juncture.

Hand cut a rectangle 1/2"w frame same size as my card base from Kanban "Bella Floral Damask Dark Chocolate" cardstock. Adhered my quilt to frame. Adhered some greenish lace and mauvish narrow ribbon diagonally on opposite edges, then adhered to card front.

Die cut my words from gold metallic cardstock (inside of a Bernard Callebaut chocolate box... the chocolate was delicious...). Adhered to front. PS the "i" is actually an exclamation mark upside down... ROFL Newest "A Way With Words" dies ("Calligraphic Elements 1" set . One of my DT sisters mentioned it looked like a candle - use your imagination... and "Dream" and parts of "Thinking of You" set also available on Quietfire Design HERE

On the inside: I repeated the quilting technique, adding a couple borders of butterflies (Darcie's "Paris" JCS172 stamp set) inking with Versafine Toffee and clear embossing.

Stamped the quote ("Sleeping Under a Quilt..."), inking with the toffee and then here and there with Black Onyx, clear embossing.

Stamped the "Love You ("Just For You" 4pce set) with the black on white cardstock, clear embossed, die cut with Spellbinder's "Classic Hearts" set, sponging around the edges with "Spun Sugar". Adhered to card and added 3 mini red buttons.

The gold calligraphy looks exquisite and sits beautifully on your quilted background. The quilting looks really effective and I'm definitely going to give that a try. Thank you for such a great tutorial and for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Sandra X
