I'm a newbie to the Color Throwdown challenges every Wednesday and couldn't resist playing with today's springy colors - So Saffron, Melon Mambo & Old Olive. My mother and grandmother were both avid quilters, but sad to say, this is the closest to quilting that I'll get accomplished. I used Creative Memories smallest square maker to punch out 12 squares. I glued them to a piece of scrap paper, stitched the seams on my Janome mini, ran it through the Cuttlebug using SU's top note die, then ran it through the CB again using the dotted swiss embossing folder. Julee Tilman released some fabulous new Verve stamps last Friday, so had to ink up the flower image in the Love's Flower set. I stamped it twice, colored with Copics, cut out & layered with dimensionals. I added a tiny tag sentiment to the ribbon and there you have it! Play time is over and it's time to get ready for work...hope you are having a super day!
