It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Let's Sew - TLF031 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Needle & Thread- FFL024 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just learned how to quilt a few years ago and really love it. This new image and sentiment would be perfect for all of your quilting and sewing friends.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock - White, cut and scored it to be 6" x 6". I cut the 1st and 2nd layers using Recollections - Purple Passions paper. The 1st cut was 6" x 6" and the 2nd layer was cut to 5.75" x 5.75". These 2 layers were attached directly to the base using double-sided tape. The patterned background paper from Crafts - Designer Paper was cut to the size of 5.5" x 5.5" and popped up using U-Line double-sided tape. The smaller square was die cut from Recollections - Purple Passions paper using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to the size of 4" x 4". This was popped up using U-Line double-sided tape onto the centre of the last square. Lastly, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was die cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities - Square Swatches for the image and My Creative Time Dies - Stiched Decorative Banners for the sentiment. The image and sentiment were both stamped onto the die cuts using my MISTI and Memento - Tuxedo Black ink. I inked around the edges of the sentiment with some purple ink that was still left on my blending brush from a previous project I had worked on. Then it was popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. Lastly, the image was coloured in with Copic markers and I created some writing on the sewing machine to represent various stitch patterns using a Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen. Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen - Silver pen was used for the needle holder and the foot on the sewing machine. Once, this was all completed, I applied the image to the centre of the smallest square using double-sided tape to complete the card.
