Cozy & Warm!

Ahhh! I can actually picture a quilt like this wrapped around me and my DH this coming winter, oh the warm thoughts. Anyway, I finally had this chance to play with my new Quilter's Sampler set from Papertrey Ink.

First I embossed Swiss dots onto Vintage Cream card stock and then wrapped some satin ribbon from top to bottom and tied it in a bow. The ribbon is fed through a slit in the top fold of the card.
Next, stamped the quilt block pattern a bunch of times onto PTI kraft, sweet blush and aqua mist card stock. Then I stamped the same pattern onto the alphabet and dots pattern paper from the 6x6 Chocolate Remix patterned paper from PTI. I used my kraft knife to cut out the center pattern from the kraft and the pattern papers and adhered them to the blocks. Then I took groupings of 4 squares and mounted them on dark chocolate card stock and a scalloped kraft matte.
The finishing touches on this card are the colored baubles (pretty good match I would say) and the stamped tag held on by the curly thing-a-ma-jiggy<<

And so as not to disappoint, here is a glance at the inside. I stamped the same block up the side and used my aqua writer and re-inkers to colors them in.

Thanks, once again, for stopping by to visit me today!!


  1. Wow! I appreciate all of the detail work on this card - it's gorgeous!
