Blue Hexagon Quilt Card

by Joanne James27. April 2014 21:35

Good evening lovely blog readers! I hope you have all had enjoyable weekends; mine has been pretty good, with the final finishing touches to Ben's Lego bedroom, a little crafting and even a bike ride in between the showers today. More on the bedroom later, but for now today's card is my entry for this week's Colour Me Card Challenge, where there is lovely colour palette of blues on the menu:

For today's card, I also took my inspiration from the picture of the cotton reels and went with a sewing-themed card - here it is:

The Six-Sided Sampler set has always reminded me of quilts - the hexagon pattern has to be one of the most popular quilting shapes, or at least one of the most iconic to me. I decided the colour palette would lend itself to a quilt, so set about laying out mine. I stamped from top and bottom opposing corners - my stamp-a-ma-jig was invaluable in getting them all aligned - and stamped my sentiment in the centre in Pacific Point. For fun, I also added a needle threaded with Pacific Point stamped from a retired set called 'Hoop La', just to add to the 'stitched' effect.

Just before I go, I wanted to share with you some of the photos of Ben's Lego-themed bedroom, featuring Lego City Firemen (of course!) - he chose a three colour wall combination, but the most fun was in customising the decoration, all of which were inspired by various photos on Pinterest:

The letter 'B' is my favourite - the windmill rotates, the wheels turn and the firemen and surface bricks can all be changed out as desired. Working wall art - how cool is that?!

Back tomorrow with something very exciting that you are not going to want to miss!! Until then, happy stampin'!

Wow!  This card is lovely - the little needle is the perfect accent to the quilted feel of the rest of it.  And that bedroom?  Amazing!  Looks like it was made with love and much attention to detail! So glad you joined us this week at Colour Me...!
