Fusion and Curtain Call

Some of you know that I am a quilter so I was excited to see that the Curtain Call photo inspiration this week was a quilt.


I have quite a collection of quilts - some I made and others I've collected.  There's something about mixing patterns and color and bits and pieces.  Sound familiar?  We do that with our paper crafting, too, although one blogger friend mentioned that it's much cheaper to do it in paper and I agree.  Today I stamped my quilt instead of paper piecing.  Yes, I said I stamped it.  Big shocker.  While I have WPlus9's quilt dies, I also have their quilt print stamp.


I didn't want to put anything over the quilt that would cover it up, so I cut it apart and popped it up over a sentiment by MFT.

My other card is for Fusion 


and I fused.


It looks like the butterfly wings are transparent and showing the paper through but I actually colored the vellum to match the paper, or rather matched the paper to the colored vellum.  Sort of like - which came first, the chicken or the egg.

My Papertrey Ink order just arrived so I'm anxious to open the package and try out my NBUS.  Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow when I'll have more to show you.
