A Flower For You


Beate posted a sketch challenge from this very cool site called Sketch This: Cards. This is challenge #16
Oh man... they have some VERY cool sketches. I'm going to be a regular visitor for sure!

This uses my FAVORITE stamp set
Pick a Petal. This petal was accidentally left out of the preview brochure, but is included in the set. It's my favorite because you can stamp it onto designer paper and have unlimited options for flowers. The sediment is from the upcoming hostess set Vases in Vogue... another favorite. :)

I'm stitching, stitching, stitching... I can't stop. I love my sewing machine. Again, if you want a great tutorial about sewing on cards, click on the Belle Papier link on the bloggin babes menu to the right. Julia does an awesome job and I feel like I can sew because of her gentle push and inspiration!

Those little mini brads are from Queen & Co. (a gift from my friend Heather). Ribbon is Cindy Ribbon (Starlitsudios), a gift from Beate. My friends are TOO good to me! Thanks girls. Everything else is Stampin'Up!

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Pick a Petal, Vases in Vogue, Three For You Punch Box
Paper: Petals & Paisley DS Paper, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomagranate
Ink: Purely Pomagranate, Basic Black, Craft White
Other: Janome Sew Mini Machine, Thread, Soft Subtle Buttons, Hold Punch, 1/2 Circle Punch, Round Tab Punch, Cindy Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Mini White Brads, Slot Punch.

Have a super everyone.... and don't forget to go over and check out Sketch This: Cards!!

I'm so glad you mentioned that that particular petal was left off the preview. It was used on a card in the preview mini and I thought I was going crazy 'cause I didn't see it anywhere!

I'm loving this set and Zoofari...

bethtrue said...

That's gorgeous! And i'm so glad you mentioned about the missing petal from the preview mailer; its funny because i could see that particular stamp used on the cover and i was thinking that it must have been from yet another stamp set since it wasn't in the catalog. :-) anyway - great color scheme and the sewing looks terrific! thanks for sharing! have a great weekend -
