ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Q

ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “Q”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Q” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY

If you just arrived from LINDA’S BLOG then you are on the right track.

I chose quilling as my “Q” element.  If you have never tried quilling it is really cool and fun to do.  I will admit it is a bit tedious, but the end result is worth it.  I love the Close to My Heart Quilling tool as it is double sided with a small and larger end.   I cut my strips of paper to 1/8th inch in width .  The lengths of paper will vary depending on what size quill shape you want to make.

Here is a close up of the quilling.  When using our cardstock you will have to ink the edges as the white core will show through otherwise.

I used the new Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack for the background of the card.  I love these papers as they provide such great texture.  I also used the new Thistle cardstock along with Topiary and Crystal Blue.  The Stamp set used is the Happy Couple D1539 with Crystal Blue ink.  For embellishments I used the Topiary Chevron ribbon and the Clear Sparkle assortment.  Now I know you are saying right now there are only colored sparkles on this card.  Well I have a great solution for you when you want a particular color sparkle is you can use the new ShinHan Twin Touch Markers to color your clear sparkles and make them any color you wish!!  Isn’t this awesome?

I am totally hooked on this new finding.  And they dry super quick.
