SEW, WE MAKE MORE CARDS...

AS YOU SAW THIS PAST WEEK, I WAS GOING TO TOWN ON MY SEWING MACHINE WITH SOME QUILTS FOR SICK KIDS IN THE HOSPITAL.  I LOVE TO QUILT AND SEW, AND THE ADDED BONUS OF DOING IT FOR CHARITY SURE MAKES IT EVEN MORE FUN TO DO.

IN KEEPING WITH THE THEME OF SEWING, I THOUGHT I WOULD CASE A CARD I SAW WHEN I WAS BLURFING (BLOG-SURFING).  THIS SEW SUITE STAMP SET WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SETS AND I WILL NEVER GET RID OF IT.  I FEEL CERTAIN SOME MORE IN THIS SEWING THEME WILL BE COMING BACK AND PROBABLY VERY SIMILAR TO THIS SET.

THE CARD BASE IS CRUMB CAKE THAT HAS BEEN HAND CUT TO LOOK LIKE A SPOOL.  IT IS THE REGULAR 4 1/4 BY 5 1/2 SIZE, BUT FOLDING FROM THE TOP AND CUTTING THE LONGWAYS FROM THE FULL PIECE OF CARD STOCK.  I USED AN EMBOSSING FOLDER ON THE ENDS TO TRY TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE WOOD, AND SPONGED SOME SOFT SUEDE OVER THE EMBOSSING AND ALONG THE EDGES.

THE SCISSORS ARE MADE WITH GUMBALL GREEN AND BASIC GRAY CARD STOCK.  I USED AN ANTIQUE BRAD TO HOLD THE TWO SIDES OF THE SCISSORS TOGETHER.


AREN'T THESE LITTLE "BUTTONS" SO CUTE ON THIS CARD?  HERE THE BUTTONS CARD IS STAMPED ON VERY VANILLA WITH EARLY ESPRESSO INK. I USED THE IN-COLOR DESIGNER BRADS TO LOOK LIKE THE BUTTONS, IN ISLAND INDIGO, POOL PARTY, CALYPSO CORAL AND LUCKY LIMEADE.


THE LITTLE LABELS STAMP SAYS "FOR YOU" AND I DIE CUT IT WITH THE BIGGER LABEL FRAMELITS DIE AND MY BIG SHOT.  I HAVE IT RIPPLE-WAVE UP A BIT AND USED MINI GLUE DOTS ON EACH END.  OH YES, I PUT SOME BAKERS TWINE AROUND THE SPOOL AND TIED IT WITH A KNOT.

THANKS TO HEATHER CSERNI FOR THIS CLEVER IDEA ON HER BLOG.  YOU ROCK HEATHER!!
