Sometimes it is fun to make a card which requires patience and this card meets that criteria. My friend loves to quilt and gifted me a beautiful quilt a couple of years ago, so I decided to make her a birthday card quilt of paper! First I gathered supplies...

Paper: I chose a variety of 20 printed cardstock and paper scraps to make the quilt blocks with. The card base is made of white cardstock cut to 11" x 4.25" and a white piece cut 5" x 3.75" to glue the quilt squares to. I used a black piece of cardstock cut 5.25" x 4". Lastly, a strip of vellum cut 4.5" long (the width depends on the sentiment you want to use... simply allow about 0.25" clearance over and under the sentiment.)

Inks: VersaMark and Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

Card: Have A Sunny Day

I didn't do a lot of paper crafting this past week, but what a fun week we had! Family, friends and travel!
There are probably few things as sweet as quietly watching a 21-month-old feed ducks and fish. Our little granddaughter was mesmerized by the "Mommy Duck!" and "Daddy Duck!" even though the swan was right in front of her and desperately wanted her attention.

After our fun at the park we went out to lunch, then we had some sorbet on Beverly Street. Our little Sweetie really liked this part of the day!

Just like her grandmother, our baby likes to "cook"... in this case "cooking" means sitting on the counter and helping Grammy make tortillas. Her favorite part was putting the squishy balls of dough on the the tortilla press.

Card: It's Your Day

Do you ever have one of those days when you want to send a card to a friend but don't have one handy? That is exactly why I like to create cards as gift sets. I usually make a gift set of four cards (each one a bit different from the other) and then I make a matching storage box and give them as a gift set to my family and friends. This entire process makes me happy because I made the cards and then gave them as a gift... it makes my family/friends happy to receive the gift (I hope)... and then they can pass on the happiness as they add a personal note inside the card before mailing it out.

Here is a gift set I made today (and the instructions to make one yourself). Get creative and use whatever paper or die sets you have... this is just one example.

To start my cards I u…

Card: Playing With Background Stamps

Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca! In order to maintain this blog, this page contains affiliate links and I will be compensated (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase after clicking my links.

I have some really pretty background stamps so I thought I would play a bit with those, but rather than using them simply as backgrounds, I chose to make some custom patterned cardstock to then die cut and create with. Using this technique I was able to create a couple of unique cards. Here is how I did it...

Using my background stamps I stamped a sheet of cardstock using four different coordinating colors. The background stamp I happened to use for this project is a CTMH stamp set D1750, but you can use whatever background stamps you have in your stash. I didn't use all the pieces I stamped, but saved the extras for future cards.


Next I used a Stamping' Up bird punch to cut out some birds and branches. I used my Tombow pens to color in the bird's beak and my b…

Blayde

Welcome to my Paper Crafting With Rebecca blog. Usually I jump right into sharing a paper crafting project, however, this is not the case with today's entry.

If you follow my blog you may realize it has been a few weeks since I posted an entry. The reason being that in the second week of June my little dog, Blayde, started having more difficulties with his health (collapsed trachea and congestive heart failure). Our veterinarian couldn't do anything more for him and Blayde died on June 25, 2018. I feel as if someone has ripped a giant hole out of my heart and because of this immense grief I have not had my usual "creative juju" or desire to do much of anything. The couple of times that I have gone downstairs to my crafting area I had to turn around and walk out, because Blayde was not there with me. He always sat at my feet, on his little bed next to my crafting table, as I paper crafted.
So I have decided, if you will be kind enough to indulge me, to dedicate today…
