2013 Family Challenge 22 - Sewing


My paper is from Basic Grey Sweet Threads paper pack. The design was perfect to make a sewed quilted look. The stamp is digital. I coloured it in with Copics and used Diamond Stickles.  I punched the corners with a Martha Stewart butterfly corner punch. I added gems to the corners. The words were printed on my pc and sewn onto a backing and Stickled. The flowers are Petaloo and the butterfly is Prima.



2013 Family Challenge 21 - Key


I used a piece of shimmery gold cardstock and I punched the top with a Martha Stewart border punch. I sewed a row of black zig zag on the top and added some adhesive ribbon and gems. I recently found a piece of fabric while looking for a loose weave muslin which I cant find anywhere. I sewed that under my stamped images which I used black Stickles on the polka dots. I sewed the images onto a backing card and also added glittered black brads in the corners and a few random brads around the card, some of which you can't see because of the placement of the flowers. I love these new flowers I found by Petaloo.  I added a sticker lace bow and key and lock charms. The words are stickers with a key charm and a red heart brad.


2013 Family Challenge 20 - Night Life


I used the Cricut Classic Font cartridge to cut the silver circle and the words. I love this silver paper from the Twinkle Glints DCWV paper pack. The tree and owls are from the Paisley cartridge. I stuck some silver rope around the edge of the card and put a big brad in to cover the join. I stuck a Prima sticker on the brad. I used Stickles to draw some stars in the night sky.


2013 Family Challenge 19 - Bon Voyage

I attached a napkin which I found at the craft store to white cardstock using Serviette Podge. It leaves a rough linen type texture. I distressed the edges if the card and used Tea Dye ink. I added Say it with Crystals around the edge. Tilda is coloured with Copics and Stickles and some Glossy Accents on her shoes. Her suitcase with clothes falling out was coloured and stuck with puffy pads but I found a sticker of the suitcase with the map of Paris on and stuck it over the stamped suitcase. I used the Tea dye ink around Tilda to soften the stark white.
I added a safety pin to the top torn corner. The flowers were in my stash.


2013 Family Challenge 18 - Monochromatic

I used shades of green cardstock. I embossed the 4 quarters with 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders and inked the edges with Colorbox. I cut out 2 Nestabilities and halved the smaller one behind the dark green. I cut out the butterfly on my Cricut with the Wall D├ęcor cartridge. I tried embossing for the first time and it wasn't a great success. My heat gun was a yard sale item. I don't think it will work again after today but has motivated me to buy a decent one. I used black and green embossing powder and then added green stickles over the body to hide some of the black I cut the top right hand butterfly from the embossed paper and stickled it and the top left butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. The "Thinking of You" words are from Enmarc. I stickled them.
