Today is Colour Your World Blog Hop with my demonstrator friends from around the world. We make projects using the colour palette of the month. Don't you love these colours for August? So gorgeous and summery!
My card today uses the Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red. The challenge is to use all or some of the colours each month.
I used the Quilted Christmas Bundle from the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue which will be released to you on September 1st. I wanted to show how to use the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set and Quilt Builder Framelits Dies for a non-Christmas card. I created the "quilt" piece by cutting out several pieces of Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper with the die and then piecing them together to create the different colours.
I used the Glad Press & Seal and pressed the die-cut pieces onto the surface and carefully removed the die. That way the pieces stayed in shape and made it easy to piece them in the frame.
I cut out the square frame from Whisper White and applied a generous amount of Fast Fuse. I then cut out the frame and inner "star" die from the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and placed it paper side down on the Whisper White layer.
Press down the frame so that the frame transfers to the base. Carefully peel off the die.
It's really simple to peel off the different colour squares of Designer Series paper and press them the frame.
I love the other dies in the Quilt Builder Framelits include the "needle" and the "spool".
Here are the products in today's card (some will not be available until September 1st):
