Shopping Our Stash #378 - Inspired By Quilting - "My Tie Dyed Quilt"

Hello, Crafty Makers!

Welcome to another fun challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  Our theme this week is Inspired by Quilting.

 Tie Dyed Quilted Birthday Card
I used WRMK Next Level Embossing Folder "Quilted"
A couple of months ago I learned a new watercolor technique that is designed to be used with one color of ink, however, I thought if I used multiple colors I might get the tie-dyed effect.  I think I came fairly close.  A few more practice runs are all I need.
The sentiment comes from a knitting themed die and stamp set.
 I apparently threw away the label so I can't tell you the name of the set.  I wanted to use a sewing machine on the front but my dies were too large.  I think the needle works just as well, maybe even better!
The inside I kept simple!  I like to leave a lot of room for writing.

My teammates have created some pretty awesome projects for this challenge.  Please check them out!

Stash Items:   Everything used in this project is over one-year-old with the exception of the die which is only about six months old.

Embossing Folder:  WRMK Next Level "Quilt"
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!

Video Tutorial: Planner DIY Paper Clip

Hi, Makers!
Today, I would like to share a quick and fun video tutorial.  Here is a great way to use both stamped and digital images to create interesting and unique paper clips for your planner/journal.
I thought it would be more fun to have the character on both the front and back of the paper clip.  It would have been boring to color both images alike!

Isn't he adorable!  I love how he peeks over the page!

Materials Needed:
Digital/Stamped Image - If you want this image, you can purchase it from Rick1949 Zibbet Marketplace
Markers or Color Pencils
Jumbo Paper Clip
Craft Knife
