Pineapple Blossom Quilt Block Card

I made this card for a Birthday card swap at PaperWishes.  When my swap partner said she wanted a card for someone who quilts, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I’ve had a pineapple blossom quilt block pattern for years, but hadn’t gotten around to converting it into a template for card making, so I dug it out and here’s what I came up with.


You can find the pattern and instructions for it on my website at

Tri-Shutter Card

I have admired several tri-shutter cards over the past few weeks, so when I saw a Tri-Shutter swap on JustCards, I just had to give it a try.  This card was made with papers from the Chocolate Dipped Artful Card Kit.


I made the butterfly using the 15 Butterflies and Dragonflies template and painted it with Smooch Ink.  You can find instructions for making your own tri-shutter card at Splitcoast Stampers.   The list of supplies I used to make this card is located on
