Christmas Quilt by Stampin’ Up!

I can’t believe it is the middle of October and I haven’t shared these beautiful Christmas Quilt cards yet. I made them in August! When the kids went back to school this year, I thought I would have tons of time to stamp and share, but I just haven’t gotten into a good routine yet – for anything. Raise your hand if you can relate. I know I’m not alone in this matter!

Here are the first three cards I came up with using the Christmas Quilt bundle by Stampin’ Up! I have done some quilting in my past, so I was very excited to get my hands on this stamp set and matching Quilt Builder Framelits.

This first card shows a very simple way to use the bundle.

  • Pick two seasonal colors in addition to Whisper White. I chose Read Red and Garden Green.
  • From Real Red cardstock cut out the largest scalloped square from the Layering Square Framelits.
  • From Whisper White cardstock use the two square dies from the Quilt Builder Framelits (nested with equal space between them) to get the white quilt outline.
  • Use just the inside square quilt die to cut one set of shapes from the Garden Green cardstock.
  • Adhere the white quilt outline to the Read Red scalloped square. (I prefer Liquid Multipurpose Glue.)
  • Fill in all the middle pieces of the pattern with the Garden Green shapes.
  • Add your quilted square to the Whisper White panel cut to 3 3/4″ x 4 7/8″ and stamp your sentiment in Real Red ink.
  • Assemble the rest of the card. Use a mat from the Christmas Quilt DSP cut to 4″ x 5 1/8″. The base for this card is made from Real Red cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 3/8″.

Tip: It is OK to adjust from a standard card base when trying to get a pattern to show equally around the main panel! Maybe this is a little fiddly, but I think it looks so much better!

For my next card the quilt pattern is actually the same as the one above but I put it together using individual triangles cut from the same die. This was pretty time consuming, but I do love the results!

I cut out four triangles from Real Red cardstock, four from Powder Pink cardstock and eight from Pool Party cardstock. I did this by first cutting out 1″ squares from the cardstock. Then I very carefully positioned the quilt die in order to get two triangles from each square.

I used the pretty flower stamp from the Christmas Quilt set and stamped in the same color ink on each triangle. I love that I was able to get a pattern on my cardstock without using DSP.

For my final card I used the Quilted Christmas DSP to make a Christmas tree! I fussy cut each triangle out of one of the sheets of DSP and then arranged them in the pattern shown on the card. Next I adhered them to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then used a trimmer to cut it out leaving a white border. I debated whether to use the tree base or not, but it looked a little funny without it. So even though it is tiny compared to the size of the tree, I left it on.

I made the sentiment by using a Stampin’ Write marker to ink up just the “merry” from the larger sentiment. Since these are photopolymer stamps it was easy to line it up and stamp it twice on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed the different ways I used the Christmas Quilt suite of products. The catalog photo above shows more ways to use the products. This is such a fun bundle and I can’t wait to make more cards with it for my friends and family!
