Happy to be back with another creation inspired by a terrific stamper -- this time, it's Dawn McVey. A visit to Dawn's blog (hello Winston, a cute dog) is truly an opportunity to soak up the sun. Her life isn't perfect, but her cards and posts speak happy. Even her color choices are happy.
I saw this card by Dawn featuring a No Sew Quilt technique and noticed that Dawn used an impression plate to get the quilted effect. I don't have any impression plates or embossing folders (AACK!) but I loved the look, so I decided to ReDesign without spending a dime.
Dawn's technique results in a deeper impression, but if you don't have an impression plate, mine works as well.
My ReDesign on a Dime process
1. Watched Dawn's video and followed the directions to make the card.
2. Selected patterned papers from a set (these are from Simple Stories patterned paper that Kristi Lockart sent to me. We are both in an informal supply sharing club.)
3. Cut a honeycomb image with the Silhouette using Neenah Solar cardstock. Order: Big Shot multipurpose platform opened to Tab 1. Cover Plate. Tan Mat. Quilt Card, Honeycomb, Cover Plate.
Here's a picture of the honeycomb on top of the card and a tan impression mat.
Suspect if I added a piece of typing paper to the sandwich the impression may have been deeper.
Thank you Dawn for agreeing to let me post a picture of your card here and for being such a great stamper.
