Hey there! It’s a rainy, cold day here in Minneapolis (um sun… where did you go? Come back!) and I’m seriously wanting to just stay under my covers and read a book. Or maybe I’ll do a little crafting. I got in my recent order from Simon Says Stamp yesterday, so I’m itching to play with some of the new things I purchased. I can’t wait to share!
Anyways, I wanted to pop in and share my card for Heather’s current Totally Hues #6 Challenge. These colors were some of my favorites, so I was super happy that she picked them.
Here’s what I came up with:
I got my sewing machine out and went a little crazy with the stitching. Hey… it was fun! I used cream thread and it shows up pink, though. Anyone know what that would be? I think my tension might be off, but I don’t know whether it is my bobbin or top thready thingy and don’t want to mess with it if it’s working reasonably well right now. Obviously, I know a ton about sewing machines… lol.
Supplies: Cardstock – Papertrey Ink (Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Simply Charteuse, Raspberry Fizz and Vellum), Stamps – Paper Smooches (Pretty Phrases and Vegtastic), Ink – Tsukineko (Versamark) and Ranger (JBS Ink in Spice Tin for inking edges), Embossing Powder – American Crafts (White Zing), Gems – Prima (E-Line).
With the rain, the baseball game that Matt and I were supposed to go to got postponed until Thursday, but that time actually works much better for us. Not to mention the fact that it’s supposed to be 57 degrees and sunny. Score! Fingers crossed. Okay, back to homework for me. Be back tomorrow with some birthday cards from this weekend.
P.S. Tomorrow is release day for Studio Calico! Who else is excited? I’m definitely picking up some more of the retail collections as well as Add-on #2 , Pink Lemonade and maybe another add-on. They’re all super cute! What do you have on your list?
