Sew Suite

Since we are featuring the products from the Oh Sew Suite Collection this week on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition, I have almost all the products laying out on my desk!  I grabbed them quickly to make a card for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge TSSC162!  I know…it is Tuesday, but I rarely get stamping things done when my husband is off for the holiday!  It's been a long time since I've played along with her sketch!



Here is my card!



I started by wanting to use the piece of Sweet Stitches Designer Paper with the pretty stitched flowers in the corner.  I had been saving it for something!  Since the stitched flowers were a Very Vanilla color, I used a base card of Confetti Cream cardstock.  I layered the DSP on Basic Gray cardstock for the front of the card.  Then I stamped the sewing machine from Stampin' Up!'s Sew Suite Stamp Set in Black Stazon on another piece of Confetti Cream cardstock.  I used my AquaPainter and the Stampin' Write Markers of Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Regal Rose to color in the sewing machine.  At the bottom, I stamped "Thanks" from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, So Happy For You…I love the greetings in that one!  


Next I stamped the measuring tape with Black Stazon on Daffodil Delight and then just the end on Brushed Silver.  I cut out the end from the Brushed Silver and placed it over the end of the Daffodil Delight one, and added a Silver Mini Brad!  Makes it look REAL!  I curved the cardstock and just added adhesive in the areas that actually touch the card…so it looks flexible.  Finally, I added Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon to the center of the Sweet Stitches Designer Button and placed it with Mini Glue Dots on the front of the card.  I think it added just the final touch of color and texture! 





It's not too late!  Over on Create with Connie and Mary, we are just starting the last week of our subscription!  This week we are featuring the Oh Sew Suite of products!  You will be able to access all the past projects we've done.  We also leave the site up for at least a year so you can access the ideas in the future!  With a price of $29.95 for over 30 projects, that is less than $1 per project!  We know you won't be disappointed!  Join today at Create with Connie and Mary!
