Prettie Wednesday- Quilting

So, two weeks ago, miss Jackie challenged my fellow Prettie girls to make a card with quilting on it. I love the way that looks, so I was SUPER excited to get started. I used the Sellabration DSP- Delicate Dots, and punched out 9 squares with my 1 1/4in square punch from SU. I then layered them out on a piece of white cardstock and pierced a border around all of them. The main image is from the newly released, Love You This Much set from Paper Pretties. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Gina K. 120lb White. I then colored him with my Copics and layered him with Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. The sentiment was made using all SU punches, and the embellishments are all from SU except the little white brads and the spiral clip. I know all that ribbon makes this less of a boyish card and a little too frilly, but I can't help myself, I just LOVE my ribbon!!
Well, that is it for me now, be sure to blurf around and see what my other Pretties have been up to!! And don't forget to check out the Paper Clip this week for all the happenings in the Prettie World!! Also, if you want to play along, just make a card using some form of Quilting, and then leave a link on one of the Prettie Girl's posts so that we can all check it out!!

Thanks and have a great day!

Okay, now on to my cards!! I actually made two cards to show you today..can you tell I was feeling the pressure, LOL....seriously. My first card was made using the Nite Nite Ellie set. It was drawn by the supah talented Stephanie Fizer. It was based on an idea by Jen del Muro. The main character is based on her adorable daughter, and is a charity set. $2 from each set sold in the first six months of it's release will be sent to St. Jude's. LOVE that!! Anywho, I used Taylor's Cupcake Sketch from this weekend for my card. The DP is from the Sweet Always DSP. I colored Ellie with my Copics after paper piecing her PJ's. Her bunny slippers are also popped up to give them some more dimension. All the embellishments are from SU, except for the spiral clips. The scallops were made with my SU scalloped edge punch.

For my next card I used the SUPAH cute new Hooga Booga set. I colored her little bow and face with my Copics and then used a two way glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to maker her sparkle. The DP is from My Favorite Things...yumm. I used Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink along with SU white. The ribbons are from SU, the brads are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, and the spiral clips are from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment was punched out with my SU circle punches.
Well, that is it for me now....head on out to Amy's Blog...I am POSTIVE you won't be disapointed!!
