For these two cards, I found doubled sided designer paper in my scrap box that worked perfectly. It is a fun design to work with.
After working on the first two cards, I wondered if I could make a card using one of my favorite quilt blocks -- the nine-patch block. I had also come across some interesting facts regarding the block. It is probably from the early 19th century. Being an easy block to learn how to sew, it was probably one of the first blocks taught to young girls.
I made my squares by using a 1 1/4 inch paper punch. I used a square piece of card stock cut at 3 3/4-inches for the base to glue the squares onto. After doing the piecing I ran it through the Big Kick in an embossing folder. It created the perfect design on the quilt block.
This last card is for the challenge I had sent out for our class on Saturday. The challenge is to play "Tic-Tac- Toe". I chose to do the diagonal "Yellow, Pink and Purple". I ended up using Flowers, Bling, and Die Cuts from the list as well.
I found the background paper (pink and yellow) in my scrap box. The flowers are made from shades of purple. The leaves were from a die and for the bling I used "Perfect Pearls". The base for the card is "Perfect Plum" card stock (a retired color from Stampin' Up).
