Make it Monday #159 - No Sew Quilted Cards

As a quilter (of sorts), this challenge fascinated me. I made a couple of cards using this technique-one using Dawn's card as a guide, and another one using Kay Demonbren's wonderful Tumbling Blocks design. I'm only entering the first one, though, as I was so blatantly copying Kay's!

The colours are a little off, but I used all PTI patterned paper: Spring Moss, Autumn Rose, Lavender Moon, and the spotted paper is from an old PTI variety pack (I forget the name), that my sister bought for me when I first started this Because the light is so bad, you can't really see the Zig:Wink of Stella glitter on the die cuts, nor the Glossy Accents on the numbers. I used the Lace Impression Plate to give it that "quilted" look.

This is the one I Case'd, using Kay Demonbren's wonderful Tumbling Blocks design. I like how hers turned out better, as I think I needed a less detailed paper in there... Oh well. My niece and her husband just bought a new house, so this card is going to go to them, and I'm sure she'll appreciate it, as is!


  1. LOVE your quilt!! and what a perfect way to use the Happy die! And your take on Kay's card is great! the detailed paper is just what makes these cards interesting! : )

  2. What wonderful colors! Perfect for a 60th bd! And what's better than b/w together? Only better when you add a touch of red! Beautiful!

  3. Kathryn, love this! Why don't I own the lace impression plate - it's gorgeous/perfect for a quilting effect. And your CASE'd tumbling blocks card is totally fabulous! I love black, white, red. It makes such a statement. P.S. I'm sure that Kay is very flattered and wouldn't have minded if you had posted it as a separate entry.

  4. Oh, dear, my enabler, addicted friend lol. What is a lace impression plate? I am afraid I will have to go see :/ thanks! Your card turned out superbly (is that a word?). Very pretty selection of pattern papers. And I am also now in love with the sentiment on your second card - I've never seen that font before. {sigh} Your blog is a serious temptation to my husband's wallet :D Love you - thank you for stopping by my bloggie.

  5. Ooopsie, PS your niece and her hubby will enjoy your congratulations card for their new home!!! I love the B&W design with the pop of red flower!
