Quick Quotes' Club Q Ideas

Hello and Welcome!

I love all the beautiful fall colors and beautiful swirling designs of Quick Quotes' newest collection, Sonata!  Currently this collection is only available through the October Club Q kits. You can check them out here.

Here is a fun page using the new collection of my son's first day back to school as a Junior:

One of my favorite things about this kit is the white leaf chipboard accents and green burlap. They are simply gorgeous and go with almost everything. Here I colored them with Zig Clean Color markers then added Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalking ink to blend and tone down the colors.

As this page is about my teenage son, I wanted to bring in a more masculine feel to the florals. I did this by matting the pattern papers and photos with black cardstock. I also edged the papers with Seafoam and Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalking inks.

All of the pattern papers, leaf embellishments and green burlap come in the Club Q kit.  The school-themed embellishments and black cardstock were added from my stash.

Happiest Of Holidays Card

Hello and Welcome!

I need to make a bunch of Christmas cards each year. So I want a design that is easy to mass produce, but still has that Wow! factor. That, my friends, is this card:


For the background I used the smooching technique with red, orange & yellow Distress inks. After it dried I stamped Winnie & Walter's Bed Of Roses with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The photo does not show all the beautiful shimmer and shine. Next I stamped the sentiment from W&W's Happiest Of Holidays set and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

This card was not only easy and fast to make, but a lot of fun!

    Hello Fall Birdie Card

    Hello and Welcome!

    I saw a great stenciling technique by Laura Bassen on the her blog for WCMD. As W&W is also doing challenges for World Card Making Day, I thought I'd join in. Here is my card:

    I used W&W Leaf Effects stencil and moved it around using different colors of Quick Quotes' PowderPuff Chalking inks. I also used W&W's "hello" die cut from their Big, Bold and Happy set. It was cut 3 time with white, green & brown papers and layered on top of each other. The bird is from W&W's The Happiest Of Holidays stamps set.

    Celebrate Summer with Scrap Our Stash

    Hello and Welcome!

    With summer winding down and the nights getting cooler, it is the perfect time to enjoy making s'mores in our fire pit.

    I had fun layering Jen Hadfield's embellishments on BoBunny's Take A Hike papers. The "celebrate" die cut is by Winnie & Walter and the mini alphas are by Elle's Studio. I also added ink splatters with Heidi Swapp's Bronze Color Shine.

    Today I am up on the Scrap Our Stash blog showcasing this month's Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.

    I went with the first column:
    Mini Alphas

    Hope you are inspired to join in on the fun, which you can do here.

    Happy Autumn with Quick Quotes

    Hello and Welcome!

    Today I here to give you peak at Quick Quotes new collection, Sonata!

    Here is a fun autumn card featuring Quick Quotes' Sonata pattern papers from this month's Club Q. I used the leftovers from the mini album kit to create it.

    I am loving all the beautiful rich fall colors and dreamy designs in Sonata. Check it out! Currently this paper collection is only available though October's Club Q kit, which you can order here.

    The card base was cut from Sonata 105 edged with Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking ink and mounted on dark brown cardstock.

    The log was stamped with Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking ink on kraft cardstock and fussy cut.

    The cute pup was stamped, fussy cut and colored with Zig Clean Color markers.

    The leaves were punched from Sonata 105, edged with Sunset, Evergreen, Barn Board, Seafoam and Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking inks and gold Stickles added. Look at the difference adding ink makes to these leaves!

    The sentiment was die cut from black cardstock.
