Quilted Top Note

Hello Stamping Friends! I just love this card. If you know me, you know why- it's because I LOVE purple! It is my all time favorite color and I think the shades in this paper look so pretty together. My inspiration for this card came from one I saw on Stampin' Connection made by Jennifer Weide. I just changed a few elements to make it my own. That is called CASE (copy and share everything) and I do it a lot. I love to see what other stampers are making and find my inspiration in their work. It's encouraged in the stamping world!

I've been seeing these Top Note quilts for a while, but this is my first attempt at making one, and here's how I did it. I took 1 1/4" squares of Cottage Wall DSP (which will be retiring in June- boo hoo!) and used SNAIL (adhesive) to attach them to a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of cardstock (the color doesn't really matter because it will be covered, but I used Orchid Opulence) so that the entire piece of cardstock is covered with DSP scraps. (You will use four scraps across and three up and down, so you need twelve squares to cover the cardstock.) I then centered the cardstock on my Top Note die and ran it through my Big Shot. Once that was done I ran it through the big Shot again, but this time I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (it's a little hard to see the dots in the picture) and centered it on a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Orchid Opulence cardstock (which is retiring in June and currently being sold while supplies last) and layered that piece over my Rich Razzleberry card base. I stamped "You're too kind" from the Whimsical Words set (a set that was only available during Sale-a-Bration) in Rich Razzleberry classic ink and punched it out using my Large Oval punch and layered that over a piece of Orchid Opulence cardstock that I punched out with the Scallop Oval punch. I popped that up in the center of the card using dimensionals. The cute little butterfly is from the set called "For All You Do" (a personal favorite) and stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink and cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I didn't take a picture but I stamped "thank you" and another butterfly from "For All You Do" on the inside of the card on W. White cardstock.

I got lots of stamping done yesterday while my little one was napping and my bigger little one was at Nana's, so I may post two cards today. We will have to see how the day progresses! Have a great one and if you like what you see, please leave me a comment. I love to know that you are visiting my blog!

I love this card and I plan on case-ing it for a card to give to my mom. She is a quilter, and loves this paper, so it really is the perfect card for her. You did a great job!
