Friendship Blooms :)

Good morning:o) I have another card for you today using the awesome Sew-Easy!!! Since I am all thumbs when it comes to my sewing machine, this tool allows me to add the beautiful stitched elements to my cards without feeling like throwing anything out the window. For today's card, I used the Scallop Stitch Sew-Easy attachment on the card front. I was attempting to create a rainbow-like effect, and I think it came out alright. What I really like is the texture it adds to my cards, as well as that extra special personal touch. Call me sappy...I know. I also like creating my own patterned paper one stitch at a time.

I even went Sew-Easy crazy on the card's interior. I used the Zig-Zag Stitch attachment and the Standard attachment to add just a little more *PoP*, plus all the sewing helps conserve on the adhesive...and I use lots of adhesive;o) To finish off the card front and interior, I just added a few floral embellishments, a bow, a button and a sentiment. I know it's not the most extravagant card, but it sure was FUN to create:o)

If you would like to play with the awesome Sew-Easy products, you can get your hands on this fabulous tool at SCACD...and they are on SALE...the stitch piercer, all the attachment heads, all the floss (including the baker's twine) and the Foam Piercing Mat. A fabulously fun product AND savings to boot, now that's the kinda thing I look for when I consider adding something new to my crafty arsenal. If you get it or already have it, I would love to see what you create:o)

Thanks BUNCHES for dropping by!!! Hopefully, I will have a card for you tomorrow:o)

Blessings and Hugs!!!

Carolyn, what a cool rainbow effect! I also like the zigzagging on the edge of cardstock. Dresses it up!

Hello, sweet Carolyn! It's been awhile since I've been posting and visiting! My son's wedding was July 29 and now I think I can get back to making cards and visiting my uber-talented friends like you! I didn't recognize this card as your work at first, but I should have known that NOBODY could do precision stitching like you!! It's a great look and I think you have a valuable new tool in your arsenal! Thinkin' of you all the time and lovin' you lots! Mwah!
