SSS Hello Gorgeous Blog Hop - Dimensional Quilt

*This post contains affiliate links to Simon Says Stamp 


Hi all!  Today I'm participating in a blog hop celebrating Simon's latest Hello Gorgeous release.  As always, there are prizes!  One winner will be chosen from every stop along the way to receive a $25 gift certificate to shop the Simon store.  In addition, any orders placed between now and the 27th will receive a free Birthday Wishes stamp set with code HBD322.

You should have arrived here from Amy Rysavy, and I'll include the full list at the end of my post if you need it.

Today I'm showing off my latest design for Simon, Dimensional Quilt.


For this first card, I wanted to do some monochromatic coloring.

The background was stamped with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and then colored with Copics.  I used BG78, BG75, BG72, and BG70.

Once I was done coloring, I placed my panel back into my stamping platform and stamped again with Versafine to just sharpen up the lines.

The panel was trimmed down.  There were a few places where I cut across a square shape, so there wasn't a line at the edge.  In those instances, I used a black journaling pen and very carefully added that line in at the edge of the panel.

I finished things off with a black mat and a sentiment from the Reverse Foundations Sentiment Strips.

For this next card, I wanted to do some piecing as well as show how you can create interesting shapes using just part of the background.



I started by stamping the Dimensional Quilt background on some scrap white paper, cutting out the shape that I wanted to piece for my base.

Next, the background was stamped onto five different prints from an old BasicGrey 6x6 pad.

The different shapes were then fussy cut, edges inked, and adhered to the base piece.

I've found that it's easiest to work from the center out helps in terms of not running into fit issues.  Occasionally you might need to trim the edge down a bit so that the lines fit.  If you cut on the very outside of your edges, you'll end up with a 'double' edge and things won't fit as well, so you need to try and cut towards the inside of the stamped lines.


The completed pieced image was popped up over a patterned paper mat with foam tape, and a sentiment from the Spring in My Step set finished things off.

OK, that's all for me today.  Your next stop is Bibi Cameron, and the full hop list is below.  Thanks so much for stopping by and happy hopping!

  33. HI, Miriam - I love, love, love that you took ONE item from the release and made two totally different cards w/ it, did a really deep dive with that one product. Sometimes when cards have 5 layers and there are so many overlapping patterns, it feels a bit overwhelming to me. I love these, esp the monochromatic one.
    Kudos and have a nice weekend.
