Welcome back to my blog! I had some time this weekend to get my craft on, so I made some projects for challenges and magazine submissions. Today, I am sharing a card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #74.I have been wanting to play with the Canvas Creations sheet from Stampin' Up. So, I die cut it using the Top Note Stampin' Up! Bigz Die. Then, I stamped the greeting and chevron design from the Oh Hello stamp set using Whisper White Craft Ink, and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then, I dipped the canvas piece in an alcohol/ink mixture using So Saffron ink for the top half and Pretty In Pink ink for the bottom half. As I was dying the piece, I overlapped the areas so it would have a nice coral color in the middle. I stitched some patterned paper from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to the card front using my sewing machine, and then added white mini-brads to the canvas piece to help attach it to the card front.
Here is the sketch I started with. Lots of possibilitites here!
Here is a close-up of the stamped and embossed image. I also used So Saffron 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and some Pretty In Pink/Calypso Coral died 5/8" Flower Trim for the roses in the lower right corner.
One last close-up of the card front.
Well, that's all for today. I'll have some more Sale-A-Bration samples to share this week, and the Artisan Design Team will have their Wednesday Wow Blog Hop on...Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
