CCMC176, Quilted Spice Cake DSP

Good morning! Only one more day until Thanksgiving, are you ready? I’ve started my cooking and prep work. I’m trying 2 new desserts this year, and I’m anxious to see how they turn out. Now the real question: Are you ready for the Shopping Season that’s only 2 days away?! Don’t forget you can get a head start with the Stampin’ Up Online Extravaganza running now through Nov 30th. CLICK HERE for complete details.

When I saw the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC176 Sketch Challenge, I immediately thought of quilts and the Spice Cake DSP. My Grandma has made all kinds of handmade quilts, from the embroidered quilt tops to the pieced quilt designs. The pieced quilts have always been my favorite and that’s what this sketch resembled to me.

I started with a Soft Suede rectangle and added 3 patterns from the Spice Cake DSP. Then I ran the whole thing through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice EF. That gave a faux quilted fabric look to my panel. I thought the upper left corner needed something, so I stamped the Day Of Gratitude medallion with VersaMark ink just to give a light impression. I stamped the Day Of Gratitude leaves with Pool Party and Soft Suede, cut them out, and popped them up with dimensionals. I finished with a “flagged” greeting and a mini silver brad.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
