Happy Sunday AGAIN! I know, I know... two posts in one day. Well I spent yesterday making several cards and I think I have one that will work for the Paper Players Sketch challenge #40. Marina made a great sketch and here it is:
Here is my card that I think will work if you hold you head sideways for the DSP placement.
I used the "Sew Suite" stamp set that I'm just in love with. "Sew" many things to do with it and "Sew" cute!.
I matted the card base with that yummy "Springtime Vintage" DSP.
On W.W. cs I stamped the dress form and pin cushion in espresso ink. The pin cushion was colored with blushing bride SU write marker and I used a silver paint pen to color the pin heads and the dress form stand.
The cutest part of this card is the gathered ribbon skirt. [I've seen this on several other blogs so I CASED the idea, but I can't remember all the names of the designers nor do I know which one actually came up with idea, so I apologize I can't give credit to the creator... but 'thanks' because it is such a cute idea.]
I stamped a second form on w.w. cs and cut it out. Then I stamped a third piece on DSP and cut out the top half and glued to the second w.w. form. I wrapped the gathered ribbon around the bottom half of the second w.w. form and pop dotted it to the original stamped dress form. I matted the w.w. piece with matching cs and popped this up on the card front,
Then I tucked and glued a piece of melon mambo Pom Pom trim along the edge of the focal point. This was my first time using the pom pom trim which I only have in melon mambo, but it is so fun and cute, I will be ordering it in more colors.
I stamped the sentiment on w.w. in espresso and punched out with new small oval punch and glued that to a oval of DSP which was attached to the bottom of the focal point with a dimensional.
I cut two piece skinny, skinny strips of card stock to use as thread on the Big Vintage button and added to the front with a large glue dot.
Can you see my card stock thread?
The inside has touches of the front DSP and I used a sentiment stamp of "Puns from the Past".
The final touch was a stamp on the lined envelope. Done!
Hope you like my little tu tu card made with the "Sew" cute "Sew Suite" stamp set.
