A Patchwork Egg & Star 66

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 21, 2011 @ 6:17 PM | , , ,

Hi there! It rained pretty much all day Sunday here in Phoenix so we spent the day at home just relaxing. Well, I spent some time working on a few crafty projects :) It seems as though a lot of my readers liked the Patchwork Star card and were interested in how I made it so I made a few other patchwork cards and put together a tutorial to share :)

First up, is an Easter card featuring a Patchwork Egg:
This patchwork egg is showcased on beautiful Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection patterned paper. For sketch inspiration, I played along with the Cleans & Simple #128 sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I referred to this week's CR84FN16 pastel palette:
Can you see the shimmer from the glitter on the egg?
Next up is another New Baby card: this one a bit more girly: (Click HERE if you would like to see the "boy" version)
I referred to this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #35 for sketch inspiration:
Here's the Patchwork Tutorial:
Step 1: Stamp various sizes and patterned Easter Eggs from Nestie Eggs stamp set.
Step 2: Use a S4-126 Classic Squares LG die template to cut/emboss squares:
Step 3: Position and adhere squares in desired pattern using a piece of grid/graphic/lined paper for guidance.
Step 4: Position and secure die template in place using a few pieces of tape on outer edges then cut/emboss using die cut machine.
Hope you give it a try! Would love to see what you create :) Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet :)

Easter Greetings Card:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Nestie Eggs

Okay seriously I get a little light headed when I come to your blog ...... you know like that one glass too many of wine. I mean seriously you make my week day moment ....... whatever when I come here. So now I have a question. Is it the smallest of the large that you use for your squares. i never bought the squares but often think I need them and now hello I know I need them......... Easter is my favorite holiday ........ everything is fresh and new and beautiful with a sweet smell in the air of all the blooms that make you just love life.........and of course PEEPS :) It use to only be Easter and you had to wait now you can get them all the time and I do not eat them anymore .......good for my waistline too :) Seriously so beautiful Mona!!!!


Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
