A Patchwork Tutorial …

 

 

 

Hi all, thanks for stopping by, I have something a bit different to show you today

When Lou does her cards with the patchwork background we always get lots of requests asking how to do it, so she has done us a step by step tutorial showing you how…

Supplies:


LOTV papers - Promises (choose 2 patterned sheets)
LOTV stamp-
Vintage Background
LOTV stamp-(clear stitching) Babies Companion Stamp Set

Double Sided Adhesive Sheet
Sizzix-658316 Bigz Die Hexagons ¾” sides
Purple ink/ Distress ink-Frayed Burlap/Staz On –Stone Grey
Fine tipped marker (fake stitching)
Base Card/Kraft card

image

1. Using the hexagon die cut 12 of each patterned pieces = 24 total

image

2. Using the background stamp inked with purple ink, stamp the background onto kraft card and cut 6 more of the hexagon shapes from this

image

3. Ink around all of the hexagon shapes with frayed burlap distress ink

image

4. Peel off the backing piece from the double sided adhesive sheet.

image

5. Start to stick down the hexagon shapes to build up the pattern

image

6. Cut the finished patterned piece to a bit smaller than your base card (5”x5”) and ink around all four sides with frayed burlap distress ink

image

7. Use the clear fake stitching stamp, stamp around all four sides of the patterned piece

image

8. With a fine tipped marker add small fake stitches around each hexagon shape

image

9. Glue onto base card and decorate as you wish...

  13. What a lovely card, and such a wonderful effect with that "fake" patchwork. Will start looking out for that die now... :o)
    BTW: Why don't you at LOTV don't start selling some of the supplies online, that you obviously sell in your shop? Sometimes it would come quite handy, that one wouldn't have to search around, like in this case (provided you have those hexagons on sale...?).
