I must apologize now for the poor pictures that will be posted over the next week. Our desktop, which has my editing software, is currently...well...broken. It should be fixed in a week, I can hardly wait!
I know how to sew using fabric to make things like clothes, but I must admit...I hate doing it. There was a time, of course, that I enjoyed the challenge of learning the ins and outs of such a thing, but that was a LONG time ago, LOL Now I enjoy the challenge of the hunt during a clearance sale.
I must say, that I really enjoyed sewing on paper. I will be using the machine much more often, maybe even as much as my ATG! Here is the first card I made.
Card Stitching. This has become one of my new favorite paper crafts to do, either on a preprinted sheet or by stamping several images to create the paper tole.
There is quite a bit of glitter on this image which adds so much to it. The image came with the glitter on it already, isn't that neat. I added the pearls to look like a barrette. Isn't this such a nice vintage image? I am not one to do "vintage" usually but it is nice to spread my horizons. I really like how the image turned out.
I also made the card with lots of layers to match the layers of the paper tole. I know it is hard to tell but the bow is a soft pink while the vertical ribbon is off white/vanilla. The 2 scalloped ovals are edged with my copper Kryon marker. In the first picture, you can see that I added some glitter to the flowers to match the glitter on the image.
I used a sentiment from an old Stampin' Up set, called Botanicals, hoping that the font looked "old", LOL, for lack of a better word.
You can click on any of the photos to get a better look at the paper tole, flowers or even the whole card :o)
I am using this card for the following challenges:
Crafty Card Makers: Inside Out
Crazy Challenge: Somethng new to use or new for you (sewing on paper is brand new for me)
Doodle Palace: make an image look 3D...(I hope these preprinted images count as they are actually harder than making your own, even with the coloring involved)
Papertake Weekly: Say It With Flowers
Charisma Cardz: 3D (again, I hope this counts)
Digi Doodle Shops Best: Sparkle, Glitter and Glitz
Pixie Dust Studio: Add A Pearl
No Time To Stamp: Gone Askew: do not center your focal point
Create 4 Fun: Vintage Card
Totally Gorjuss: Bling It Up
Pile It On: Out of the box (I literally took my sewing machine out of the box, LOL, finally)
Have a fabulous week :o) HUGS
