Another quilt card and new stamps!

I have been putting my new (old) paper shredder to the test! For this card, I ran suede paper through (the magenta strips) as I knew that paper would give a richness to my "quilt" and would also show up the impressabilities embossing, just like the metallic paper.
I also used new stamps from Quietfire Designs....you know I love calligraphy and I love stamps, so I really love nice calligraphy stamps. Suzanne has a new sheet of stamps and I liked all of them! There is a "Queen of" image and then choices....I guess my kingdom would be "too much stuff"....which is one of the choices!
I have loved Quietfire since finding them...above is a card I made that Spellbinders used in their CHA booth for winter 2008.
No affiliation with them....just appreciate good work!

Your stuff is just GORGEOUS, too much or not! I don't own a one of the Quietfire stamps but sure wish I had them all. They are beautiful and your creations are more than worthy of their words. Happy World Cardmaking Day, Holly!

These quilt cards are just gorgeous, is there a place to get instructions?

Karen,
They are very easy. You use sticky paper and quarter inch strips of paper. Do one long strip lengthwise at an angle on the sticky paper. Then two strips at right angles from that first strip, on opposite sides. Then you do log cabin from then on (a strip going this way, a strip going that way...)to fill up the four segments. I will try to take some photos or see if Jan is okay for me to use her photos. It will be a week or two, though as I am up to my nose in a flooded downstairs...well not up to my nose...only my shoe soles!
