Sew Sweet

This card will be published in the 9/26/10 issue of Scrapbook News and Review. 


It's Thursday, time for another card featuring Lindsay's Stamp Stuff  images.  This is one of the first images I fell in love with, way before I joined the design team.  Sew Pretty has sew many fun images to work with.   I'm really happy with how this card came out.  Along with the Sew Pretty digital stamp I used this awesome dp Cosmo Cricket Material Girl and Tim Holtz Alterations texture fades Patchwork set both RAK from my friend Kristen.  The tomato dp is called Sweet Tomato Dots from Lasting Impressions, I bought it with this card in mind.  The teal and yellow cs and the  Eyelet embossing are Stampin Up.  The pins and needles are done in Stickles Silver and pearls they are not real.  I am flattered that so many of you think the "  real pins"   were a good idea, thanks but Lindsay gets credit for drawing them onto the image for me, I just cut, colored and added the stones.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye to distress it and Spellbinders Petite Ovals Nestabilities and Shapeabilities Fancy Tags.  I almost forgot, I used a lot of foam squares to lift it all up, even the buttons.
