Sew Stylish

Good morning to you all.  I am still waiting for the snow we only have a very slight dusting here in Blackpool but it is still cold!

I started to make a card yesterday, coloured the image but I couldn't decide on the layout and then I lost interest so I have one I made earlier if you know what I mean!



Its a Unity Stamp I get one every week from their Unity Stamp of the Week its good fun opening up the package to see what the stamp is!  I have coloured it with Copics and distressed the edges with Spun Sugar DI.  The image has been cut out with a Spellbinders rectangle.  The sentiment came with the stamp and I have used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss it.  The paper is digital by Raspberry Road.  The scissors, tape measure and Vintage Buttons wording are all from an embossing folder which I lightly sanded and then cut out.  The doily is Cheery Lynn French Pastry.  The pom pom ribbon and button are from The Ribbon Girl.  I have used a border punch but you can hardly see it!  The dew drops have been coloured with Spun Sugar DI.  Seam binding and twine are from my stash.  Here is a look at the inside as I normally forget to photograph that:



I would like to enter the following challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Something New (Embossing Folder, Stamp, Ribbon)
Divas by Design - Make it Girly
Loves Rubberstamps - Cute as a Button
Kaboodle Doodles - Buttons
Totally Papercrafts - Embossing of any Kind

Well I hope you weren't too badly affected by the snow if you are in the UK and a big thank you for coming to look.  See you tomorrow - take care xx

Hi Susan, Sorry but in my part of Blackpool we have lots of the white stuff, it looks like it should have looked on Christmas day...but thats another story...lol....

This is really pretty Susan, so many lovely details.
There is about six inches of snow down here and us soft southerners are not used to it. We just had a snow plough go down the road, that's a first and bearing in mind we live in a town I think the council has done a pretty good job!
Keep warm.
