I spent years going to the yearly SAGA (Smocking Arts Guild of America) convention each fall. Since my wrist surgery 3 years ago, I have not been going- as I have lost the ability to stitch for hours like I used to….anyway, I wanted to make a card for my dear friend to wish her a great time! I took the opportunity to be inspired by the use something that starts with a ‘B’ and here is what I came up with:
Button stickers and lace Bows…..The sketch is from the MoJo Monday challenge blog. I found some old sewing stickers and Die Cuts- I bet they are 8-10 yrs old….. (Maybe I will have to start dating my packages when I bring them home…..)….
I stamped on Vanilla CS and used Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy inks. The stamps are from I Brake for Stamps (Time to Stamp). There is a row of a TJ technique called Aged Parchment that I Zig-zagged on with my sewing machine and a row of off lace that is ‘pin-stitched’ in place.
For more inspiration, click on the DT names above their project samples on the Belli Blog. If you post to an online gallery, please use the link CBC100. The challenge lasts for two weeks.
Challenges for my card:
