I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Sewing Mends the Soul

Happy Wednesday afternoon everyone,

I got home from work a little on the early side yesterday afternoon and decided I had enough time to make a card for Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #33. This card just "clicked" as it was being put together. Mostly, I design as I go, so sometimes a card will take awhile to put together. This one just worked with each idea that I came up with and was done in no time.

The papers are, once again, from a TE Key Ingredients kit, November 2011. The main element with the Quilt sentiment is pre-printed and came with the kit. I used the "receipt card" (also part of the kit) to stamp random images from Taylor's mini stamp set "Sew Happy".

The background papers were put through the SU Square Lattice EF to make them look more like fabric.

The buttons were put on as an afterthought and I think they work well with the theme of this card. They also make this card perfect for the current recipe challenge at Linda's Catered Crop. The challenge is to use buttons on our project.

Stamps: Taylored Expressions "Sew Happy" stamp set
Paper: TE Parakeet and Frosted Teal CS and Jillibean Soup - Homemade 6 Bean PP
Ink: SU Early Expresso
Other: SU Square Lattice EF, buttons, mini glue dots, TE ribbon, TE small scalloped border die, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

Have a great day all and thanks,
