Friday, May 10


LOVE the idea for today's FRIDAY MASHUP - it is like 'STACK AND WHACK' in quilting!  Take 4 pieces of DSP and cut them into different sized squares then shuffle them and make cards with them  - HOW FUN. The other part is to make a card set - OR MASH IT UP AND DO BOTH!!  WOO HOO

I chose my DSP that is retired but coordinates perfectly with AN OPEN SEA stamp set.  I hope they come out with something to go along with the stamp set for THIS catalog since the stamp set is carrying over for another year.

This is a fun way to make quilt blocks as well.  You choose fabrics that coordinate and then you stack them up, whack them into different shapes and shuffle them.  Then sew away to make your blocks.  I bet you didn't realize you can use the same ideas from STAMPING and start QUILTING - did you?  It is so similar, just a different medium - paper or fabric!!  COOOOL

 I thought I would also whack the layer behind my card.  I cut the layers behind it and put blue and red together.  Goes right along with the whole feel of the card set. (There is some weird setting on my camera that puts a shadow on the bottom left side once in a while.  Not my finger, something inside the settings.  Last time this happened my hubby fixed it.  Guess I pushed something wrong so now I have to have him fix it again tonight.)

 I am LOVING this anchor in the stamp set.  This one I smudged around the edges to make it have more "sea miles" on it.  ha

I think I will make a card holder for these four cards and make it a complete gift.  Good idea, huh?

Some of the layers I flipped over and used the back of the DSP so that I actually had 8 choices instead of the 4 pieces I chose.  LOVING double sided paper.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if FABRIC was the same way??!!  hmmm...there is a thought for someone looking for a new idea in fabric creation.

Thanks for stopping by.  I have entered these cards in:

    1. I know, I love it too. Why would they retire the paper and NOT the stamp set? I don't see anything to replace it in the new catalog either!!
