Time for the April New release blog hop!!
Oh you quilters are going to love these new dies and stamp sets.
My first card is an easel card to show off the new Dresden die AND the new Dresden stamp set (featured inside under the sentiment).
My sister is recovering from a broken collar bone so I will be sending this card to her.
ODBD dies used: Dresden Quilt, Log Cabin Quilt, Double Stitched Squares, Double Stitched Rectangles (elongated), Filigree Frames, Lavish Layers
ODBD paper used: Cozy Quilt Collection
I cut the Dresden Quilt pieces from 3 papers out of the Cozy Quilt Collection and from white then pieced them in the way I wanted them on top of a light sage green cardstock. I cut the green cardstock with the Double Stitched Squares and the rectangle piece underneath with the Double Stitched Rectangles.
To elongate a rectangle, place the top plate of your cutting sandwich just to but not covering the bottom horizontal cut (the die will ONLY cut where the top plate is), then, after your first cut, take the die out and place it on the cut but further down and place the top plate so that it cuts only the extra length and not across the horizontal top.
You can see the top plate does NOT go over the end. I use removable tape to hold my die in place.
To make this vertical easel card, cut your 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock into 2 pieces 11 X 4 1/4. Using one piece as a base, score at 5 1/2" and then again at 8 1/4". Cut the other piece in half at 5 1/2" and use one piece for your front (top). Glue to just the 2 3/4" end so that the ends are even and card folds down to 5 1/2 X 4 1/4".
On the inside you will need something popped up to act as a "stop" to hold your card open.
My next card is the Star Quilt. I love this quilt design!
I am not a quilter so there is a lot I need to learn about pattern placement but
now I have this die to play with I will be doing a lot of experimenting!!
ODBD stamps used: All Mothers
ODBD paper: Cozy Quilt Collection
I used a light green and a dark green with tan to coordinate with the colors in the Cozy Quilt papers on this card. The sentiment was cut with one of the rectangles in the Log Cabin Quilt die. The ribbon is died to match seam binding.
