My order from All That Scraps came this week! I am super-excited, too because in addition to the new Glam Girls (which I LOVE!) I also ordered a Pink Cat Studio plate of stamps! Of course, I had to immediately ink them (okay, after a day of work) and start playing around. hee!
The ATS blog challenge this week was to make a gate fold card. I groaned. I admit. In the past, my gate fold cards have been EPIC FAILS. But with my Scor-Pal, it was so easy that even I was amazed that I actually got it folded right. LOL
This little birdy image is from the Tweet plate and it was so cute and I've been meaning to sew on my cards for some time but...well...I was a bit lazy about digging it out of the closet. So I did tonight and I practiced on some scrap cardstock and it was lovely and perfect and then when I went to sew my card, the thread slipped and I didn't realize until I'd sewn down one whole side. D'oh! Sooooo...I went ahead and just paper pierced it with the sewing needle and drew in the faux stitching lines. hee!
The gingham paper is from a 9,000 year old paper pack that I've had since the beginning of time, all CS is from SU and I used the shimmery white for the image. I colored it with Copic markers and used my white gel pen to doodle around the scallop. The little sparkley flowers on her glasses are from Hero Arts.
Thanks for stopping by today and stay tuned for something fun and exciting. *wink*
