Stamping 411 – Sew Suite

It's time again for Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge!  As you are reading this, I'm at Leadership and getting to meet all these lovely Design Team Operators! 

So, quickly, since I'm running behind getting ready as usual!


I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock (always a great neutral!) and layered on Daffodil Delight that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Impressions Folder.  At the bottom I layered on the stitching designer paper from Sweet Stitches Designer Paper package.  To hide the seam, I stamped the ruler from Stampin' Up!'s Sew Suite stamp set in Early Espresso on Marina Mist cardstock and tirmmed it.j


I stamped the focal Dress Form image from Sew Sutie in Early Espresso on Whisper White, then again on a pattern in the DSP and paper pieced it over top of the Dress Form image.  I colored the stand with Marina Mist Marker and added a little hint of the ground with Sahara Sand marker.  I added a Itty Bitty Flower punch and Adhesive Backed Pearl to the side of the Dress Form.


I trimmed out the Whisper White by layering it on Early Espresso, then a larger mat of Marina Mist (where I hand wrote the Xs…don't laugh!) and then another layer of Early Espresso cardstock.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I added a Daffodil Delight Big Designer Button with Linen thread tied in a bow and the small oval punch with the word Thanks from Fabulous Phrases stamped on it.


Makes sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Designers did this week!
