Mojo Monday Friend Quilt Card

Stampin up retired retiring stamps square punch quilt card idea mojo monday catalog oval
I’m so excited to share today’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO238), since it’s based one of my personal designs!  The essence of this “quilt” card is the Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4″ Square Punch and With All My Heart stamp set.  With All My Heart stamp set (images at the end of this post) is one of 300 Stampin’ Up! stamp sets retiring on May 31.  Be sure to purchase it before it’s gone!



I don’t think my “quilt” design inspiration (from The Company Store) needs much explanation 🙂

  • The “flower” stamp from With All My Heart was heat embossed in white on scraps of Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry and Island Indigo.
  • Each embossed image was cropped with the Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4″ Square Punch.

  • To keep squares lined up, I adhered them to a 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  It’s slightly smaller than the total surface area of the squares, which ensures the white card stock is hidden.
  • The entire “quilt” is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two Jewels Basic Rhinestones accent the “friend” sentiment.
