There is a design team call over at "Our Creative Corner" - the theme is "show us your style". Well, I have so many different styles that I wasn't sure what to submit but I think that this card shows several styles. I love shabby chic, elegant, cute, colorful with just a touch of grunge. Here's my card:
My mother-in-law is quite the seamstress. She has a huge sewing room with many sewing machines and a lot of sewing supplies. When I saw this Stampin' Up stamp set, Sew Suite, I just knew I had to have it so I could use it to make cards for her. My mom and I both sew too so it's a set I'm sure to use quite a bit.
Below is a close-up of the sentiment. I cut the flower out with larger flower from MFT's die-namic's mini rolled roses. I used Spellbinder's labels twenty to cut out the sentiment and Spellbinder's label fourteen to cut out the decorative paper behind it.
At first I wasn't sure where I was going to place everything so I stamped the pin cushion and colored it with copics then set it aside. After I decided that I wanted it on the sentiment I adhered it to the already cut out and sponged sentiment and then used Buttercup Liquid Pearls for the heads of the pins.
I used some hand-dyed seam binding for the bow to add a little shabbiness and also used some distressed inks around the edges of each of the stamped items. Here is an angle of the card to show the lovely dimensions.
I used the doily stamp from Nina Bracket's "Nana's needlework". I stamped it with veramark ink on vellum and embossed it with detail white embossing powder. I then fussy-cut it out around the outside edge. I think it adds a touch of elegance.
I stamped the spool onto cardstock, colored it in with copics and then cut it out. I then took some embroidery floss and wrapped it around to look like thread.
On the inside of the card I stamped the sewing machine and colored it with copics. I added a little shine with a glitter pen.
