Hello Baby Card and Quilt

Needed a baby card and I don't have any current "baby" stamps but I do have the words "hello baby" from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I used the Fresh Prints designer series paper stack for the banners along with the Banner Punch from the sale-a-bration catalog to shape the bottoms of the banners. 
A simple card that matches the baby quilt I made!

Celebrate Card and Union Jack Quilt

Well, once again I have been spending more time sewing than card making and my little blog sits unattended so I made a card to celebrate finishing a quilt top!
For this card I used the Too Kind stamp set and just stamped the flowers upside down to look like fireworks and added a little sparkle with Dazzling Details.
The "Celebrate" is from the Best of Birthdays stamp set which it only available until March 31.
Now onto the quilt that I am celebrating.
Perhaps I should wait and celebrate when it is all finished and quilted but this one took so much of my life hours that just finishing the top was a huge success.

I love tea time and all things British so when I saw this pattern called His Royal Union Jack in the January/February 2014 McCall's Quilting Magazine I knew I had to make it.
This was the first time I have done paper piecing and after the top was finished and it was time to remove the paper that alone was a 5 hour job!

The cute red fabric with the little tea pots in the picture below will be the backing fabric.
Love it!
And, just so you know, I am working on some cards so will have some to share soon.

Scallop Tag Punch Card

You may have been seeing these cards around with the cute closure using the Scallop Tag punch.
Here is my first try at it.
I used Chocolate Chip, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Whisper White card stock.  The pretty paper is from the Venetian Romance designer series paper.  The stamp set is Label Love.

So, what have I been up to since I have certainly not been updating my blog lately?
Here is a quilt top I have finished called All Fowled Up.

And another one I have been working on that has 18 Union Jack flags on it.
One flag left to go and then I can put it all together.  Then perhaps I will get some stamping in!

Happy Stampin' or Sewin' or both -
