Sew Special

Today I played with the Sew Nifty stamps and Die-namics set from My Favorite Things and used the CR84FN66 colour challenge, along with the sketch PP119 from the Paper Players.


I started by stamping the sentiment at the bottom of the Kraft panel with Memento Tuxedo black then I ran it through my Vagabond with the Textile embossing folder. I layered it onto Steel Grey card stock and used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the floral patterned paper flag.

I used the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream circle then I "stitched" some Flax Twine through the holes. I added a little bling for some sparkle. I used the Sew Nifty Die-namics to cut out the thread spool from Kraft and the scissors from Steel Grey then I wrapped more Flax Twine around the spool. The two patterned papers are from the On the Bright Side Two and Portobello Road paper pads, both by My Mind's Eye.

On the inside I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the Kraft scallop piece and stamped another sentiment from the set.

Here are the supplies I used:
