I’ve been so excited since receiving my THREE (!) sets of quilting stamps from PTI earlier this week that I haven’t been able to put them down! 

Since the theme for the Blog Hop is POLKA DOTS, I searched the Internet for a polka dot quilt as my inspiration.  This is the beautiful quilt I found!
I LOVE black and red together, so this quilt was perfect; And, I was amazed when I went through my stash of scrap paper and found LOTS of black and red polka dots!  

Here’s my Crazy Polka Dot Quilt card.  🙂

Here’s a link to another Quilt card I made earlier this week also using the PTI quilt stamps: https://mycardz.wordpress.com/2008/10/22/october-is-breast-cancer-awareness-month/
and a link to the PTI forum to see all the spectacular entries:  http://forum.papertreyink.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=39
***I’m also VERY excited to let you know that I will be hosting a challenge to be held once every six weeks on the PTI Forum!!  The plan is to find a quilt picture and make a card/project with a similar color/pattern using the PTI quilting stamps!!  How cool is that???  🙂   

The first challenge will be posted on November 19th…plenty of time to order your quilting stamps!  Here’s a link to the three sets available.  (Please note, it is absolutely not necessary that you have all three sets to participate): 

Quilter’s Sampler – http://papertreyink.com/stamps_quilterssampler.html,

Quilter’s Sampler Additions – http://papertreyink.com/stamps_quilterssampleradditions.html   and

Quilter’s Sampler Sentiments – http://papertreyink.com/stamps_quilterssamplersentiments.html.   

I’m really looking forward to this challenge and hope you will be able to join us!  Of course, I’ll be sure to post some reminders along the way.  🙂   Yay!

    All I can say is WOW! This must have taken you for-ever to put together.

  26. Really WOW!

  27. Oh wow!!! That is amazing and beautiful!!

  28. This is amazing, I can’t even imagine the amount of time that went into this card.

  29. NiCE!!!!

  30. Wow! I’d love to hear how you made this — I’m thinking that you first made a square, then cut that square into quarters – re-grouping and piecing the various quarters into the new square?
    This is just stunning! I can’t imagine actually giving it to someone!

  31. Love this. At first I thought you made the quilt, but I love how your card coordinates. I like the idea of a challenge too.

  32. This is an awesome card! I love the colors!

  33. FAB-U-LOUS, I think you like cutting out even more than me! I was looking at your “pink quilt” earlier and thought nah, she didn’t cut all those pieces out. But you did! Can’t get over how all the pieces match. A real labour of love, and it was worth it.
    Take care & keep smiling

  34. WOW—that’s amazing! I LOVE this card! I’m not sure I could give this one away—I’d have to frame it and put it in my house!!

  35. Nancy Stevens says:

    I just love the whole thing! You did a fantastic job. Perhaps you should consider sewing fabric…aka “quilting”! Or, I could send you little pieces of fabric so you could do miniatures! That’s always fun! 🙂 Great job, as usual!

  36. OMG! this card is making me want this quilting set (and I don’t make quilts!). you nailed your inspiration piece and this is just breath taking!

  37. Jessica G says:

    Oh, goodness!! When I first looked at your card, I thought it was a photo of the quilt again! You are amazing, Mary, and so is your card!

  38. oh my gosh, how awesome!!! love how you used the inspiration!

  39. I LOVE the quilt and the card! I wonder if my best friend could make something like that for me 🙂

  40. What an amazing use of these stamp sets – I have them also, but havent’t even worked with them – this is truly inspiring. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog and for stopping by – I can see yours is one I really want to follow. Thanks so much for sharing. Take Care – Dru

  41. Wow, this is AMAZING! So intricate, I love all the details…seriously WOW is all I can say!

  43. MARY! This has to be one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. Just amazing.

  44. BEautiful! Amazing re-creation and so detailed! WOW!

  45. All your cards are amazing, Mary, but these quilt cards are above and beyond — wonderful job! I’ve been admiring this set ever since it debuted; you’ve really inspired me to keep it on my wish list!
