Monday Stamps!!

Welcome to another edition of Monday Stamps!! This week we are on the letter "R".. Grab the sets you have that begin with the letter "R" and post your creation and link up in the Mr. Linky Box below.. Up for grabs this week are some Die cuts from the Sizzix Big Shot Dies.. the first 2 people to link up by Sunday will receive an assortment of items already cut out and ready to assemble. Including the new "Look Here" Pop- Up Gift Card Holder Die!

Last week was the letter "Q" Was that hard or WHAT? I didn't have a single set that began with the letter "Q", but I just happened to have ordered a set from Papertrey Ink the week before for my Friend Tess for her Birthday.. She helps me a lot with my Blog and other varies sites.. I'm HTML illiterate..lol I wanted to make her a card with the set before I sent it to her.

So the set is called "Quilters Sampler" She is really into making quilts and I thought this would be perfect for her to make some handmade gifts cards to give out with her quilts. I'm not a quilter so I did my best with my card.. Not to shabby.. This is also the first Birthday card I have made this year for anyone. I'm really behind..

I stamped the quilt squares onto some scraps of DSP in Bashful Blue & Pretty in Pink and I punch some squares from a piece of Chocolate Chip DSP using the 3/4 inch square punch! Then I layered them onto a piece of Whisper White and then onto a piece of Chocolate Chip. You can't have a quilt without stitching so I stitched around the quilt squares and along the piece of DSP with Blue Thread.

I really need to stitch on my cards more often.. It's gives them a very nice touch! Then I added some Bashful Blue Brads in the corners and I stamped the Thread image in Pretty in Pink and the sentiment over it in Chocolate Chip.. Here is a picture of the back it has a very cute stamp you can sign you name on.

If I was a quilter I would so keep this set for myself! It's adorable.. It's not a Stampin' Up! Set but it's cute and there wasn't a SU set that began with "Q". These stamps stamped very good once I got the hang of them. I'm not a big acrylic stamper.. The didn't bleed and I loved how they were packaged perfect for gift giving! So in a way this is a Hybrid card.. Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink!
