Tuesday Trigger: Squares To Cherish



 Hi blog buddies!  Just slipping in a quick card I did for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.  This idea had been brewing around in my head for a few days and it was time to let it out.


I used all Waltzingmouse sets for this.  The afghan piece was made by stamping the graph paper background from Off Beat Backgrounds on white paper, coloring in with Copics and Dick Blick markers (the 70% warm grey one), adding black and white dots, and cutting apart and reassembling to resemble the afghan in the photo.  Then I made a simple flower bunch from white mulberry paper, lace, paper roses, punched fern, and pink embroidery thread.  It's stuffed with a little bit of toilet paper to give it dimension.  The sentiment (from Say It Loud) was stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

Edited to add:  forgot that I also made this card for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge WMSC58!  Duh!  Here's the sketch I used as a guide:



Well, that was fun!  Thanks for looking!

  4. Well, welcome toilet paper to the crafter's arsenal! Who would have thought that it's uses would be so varied. Again you have thought outside the box with the quilt, it looks amazing and so striking on the blue card, another triumph Cyndie
