Happy Saturday!!!!! Do you have any FUN things planned for today? Nothing special here. The weather is really BLECH...gloomy and rainy...so, I think it is going to be a lay-around-the-house-with-hubs-and-watch-old-movies kinda day. I love those guilt-free days of relaxation :o)
Today's card came about from playing with my Sew-Easy. I have been going crazy with my standard Sew-Easy attachment, but realized I was neglecting the other fab attachments I had sitting on my craft table. So, I pulled out a piece of scrap Kraft card stock, my Sew-Easy Burst Stitch attachment, some summery floss and got busy playing. Once I was finished stitching in the sweet bursts, I decided I wanted to turn it into a simple card by trimming the corners, adding a simple, floral embellishment and a sentiment from PTI. I like the texture the stitching added to the card...and for "playing around", I thought it came together okay.
For the card's interior, I simply added one of the adorable stamps From the Vault by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. Isn't she a cutie?!?! I love her precious, little face:o) I stamped the image, "Daisy Doll", onto another piece of scrap Kraft card stock...I have seen others do this and thought I would give it a try...hey, after all I am "playing" right? Might as well go all in:o) This sweet image was colored with Prismacolor markers; and for a pop of the sparkly stuff, a coating of DecoArt Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in Ice Crystal was added to her. Then, she was cut out...popped up with a dimensional...and placed next to the sentiment.
I know the card isn't the greatest, but I had a fabulous time playing with my Sew-Easy and getting rid of some scraps:o) After doing this, it gave me more ideas for a future card...I think the Sew-Easy Burst Stitch would be great on a Christmas card...don't the bursts sorta look like snowflakes? Maybe a white on white Christmas card...white card stock and sparkly white floss...hmmmmm....You know what's even better?ALL the Sew-Easy products are currently on sale at SCACD. There are a few more attachments I need to add to my collection, so I better get them before Susana runs out! I have another card featuring a different Sew-Easy attachment, sure hope you will drop by tomorrow and check it out:) Hope your weekend is going fabulously!!!!!
Hugs and Blessings!!!!
