Sew Happy

Good Friday everyone! I am joining in two different challenges today after receiving some new goodies from The Greetery earlier this week.  First is the Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge which has a sketch. Next up is the Seize the Birthday challenge which has an off the edge theme. My large circle element was placed "off the edge" then trimmed to fit the A2 tapestry base.

The new Rose Tapestry stencil set is SEW MUCH FUN (sorry...couldn't resist a pun!) and this time I used shades of the coral color family (an earlier post used shades of pink).  My mother was an avid seamstress and quilter and she would have loved this card if she had not passed away in 2010. 


STAMPS: Stitched Sentiments (The Greetery).
INK: Meadow, Key Lime, Olive, Sunkissed, Mimosa, Mango Sorbet, Fruit Punch (dye inks by Pinkfresh Studio); Versafine Clair Nocturne.
PAPER: Stampers Select White, Classic Kraft, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink); Metallic silver and gold.
DIES: Stitched Sentiments, Aida Cloth Texture Plate, Notionable, Hoopla Oval (The Greetery).
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Enjoy your day!  ~Wanda

I used to be a sewing crafter, but now I do paper crafting. This card actually makes me want to get back to sewing. It is lovely with all of the elements I used to use. Thank you for sharing it with us at Seize the Birthday Challenge.

This is just outstanding, Wanda! Between the color palette, the die-cuts and the background I don't even know where to look. Wonderful job and thanks for sharing this with us at Seize the Birthday.

What an amazing card for someone who loves sewing or even cross-stitch. The panel you used the texture plate is so perfect for your card with the pixelated images. Thanks for joining us at Try A Sketch On Tuesday.

Wow, Wanda, I love how you had the circle off the page and all the wonderful elements you added, yes your mom would have adored this card! My mother too, she sewed all my clothes as a young girl, even in high school! that is aging me because I am sure not one high school girl would be wearing a homemade dress these days! You have given me some fun and warm memorizes from this card, so thank you for that! And thank you for sharing this card at Seize the Birthday! May you have a glorious day!
