About Me

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

Sew Happy


A new Paper Players challenge starts today, and it's brought to us by LeAnn. She has a sewing theme going for us to have fun with. I started by pulling out some old patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket called Material Girl. From there, I went looking for a sketch, and lastly, my stamps. I managed to keep it all on track with the sewing theme. I even added stitching on the "seams." My card is somewhat CAS (other than the layers of paper) and I rather like the way it turned out. The sketch is the current Freshly Made sketch #75.

Stamps: Sew Suite set by Stampin' Up and Sew Happy set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU very vanilla and poppy parade card stock and Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket patterned papers
Ink: SU poppy parade and Memento tuxedo black
Other: Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX dies, sewing machine, silver gel pen, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

I'm off to Colorado Springs again tomorrow for the week. Should be the end of the project. Looks like I'll be lucky in the weather department. The Weather Channel has sunny days all week with temps in the 50s. Can't beat that!

Have a wonderful week all, and thanks for coming by,
