Hi everyone. I have a card today made with some freebie stamps which came with a magazine bought recently for me by hubby. It was my birthday earlier this month and he surprised me on the day with a couple of magazines and one of them had sewing themed stamps, dies and an embossing folder, and perfect timing as a friend of ours had her birthday yesterday and she is a keen sewer/quilter so I made this card with some of them. In case anyone is interested they came with Love Cardmaking Issue 7, and after checking it out it doesn't appear to be a current issue but he did buy it from a high street chain which sells magazines, so not sure why they were selling it there, and obviously I don't know if copies are still available.
I started with a smooshed background using Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. I then used the pretty pinked edge die which was one of the freebies, and cut three of the squares using some snippets of LOTV papers which I have from way back. I stamped the images using Versafine Deep Lagoon Ink and also used it for the sentiment. I extended the straight stitch/zig zag border which did join fairly well but luckily it is hidden under the bottom square. I also used some more snippets from the LOTV paper pad to paper piece the tape measure, scissors and buttons which I thought made them stand out more. I then added this to the white card and positioned the squares as you can see with the middle one as the sentiment plate.Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
