TIOT #75 - Quilts and Stitching!

Happy Thursday Everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week!  School has been absolutely insane this week...I really hope the next 5 weeks go by super fast because I can't wait to be done with this class!  I hate to wish away the summer....but I really need my break before the regular semester starts!  hee hee! Thank goodness CHA is coming up...that will be a nice breather for a few days!

It's time for another TIO*T* and this week we have a fabulous challenge from's all about QUILTS and stitching! You most definitely want to play along this week because it's the FIRST challenge of the month which means Susana has a PRIZE to be can choose any stamp of your choice!  ***Just remember in order to be in the running for the prize all you need to do is use a stamp that Susana carries in the store! :) ***
Today I have used Flower Power which is one of the NEW stamps in the Sampler Edition #5 by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD!  This is my sister's birthday card....I hope she likes it!!!  The papers I have used are from the Basic Grey Sultry collection....I love this collection because of all the pinks and browns!  I hope you can see my quilt design behind all of the elements!  I also got out my Janome Sew Mini and stitched all the edges of the papers.
Miss. Flower Power was colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen!  I've used my Chocolate Spica and Clear Spica in her hair for some extra shimmer.  The clear Spica was also used on her sash.  Raspberry Fizz ultra fine Flower Soft was used for the wreath in her hair.  I soooo love the ultra fine Flower soft for the little spaces!
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I've used a Classic Sweet Rose, Cherry Blossoms, 4mm Rosebuds, and Pink Crystal Drops.  The flowers have been glitzed up with Star Dust Stickles.  The flower charm has been colored with my Copic to turn it from the silver it was to a pink to match the card!
AND....You can't have a card without VIVA!!!  In all of the corners of the card I have used my Viva Decor Opaque Gloss Pen and made my "dots."  Then I sprinkled Glamour Dust on them to make them glitter dots!  On the two butterflies I have used my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen to make the pearls!  I so love being able to customized any dots and pearls that I need for my projects!  Viva pens are definitely a must have and you get sooooo much for the price you pay....definitely worth the money!

Now head over to the SCACD Blog to check out all the other DT samples!  Don't forget to link your project -->here<-- for your chance to win a stamp from the SCACD Store!

Stunning creation and right in your elements with the pink and brown. Thanks for letting me know Janome makes a mini. I'll have to look into that because I'm not using my good Janome to sew on paper...I have enough trouble
Thanks for sharing your beautiful works Kim. I so love visiting your blog.
