Hello there! Today's card is my Goddess card for the Stampin' Royalty challenge blog. This week's challenge is a "Birthday" challenge, that's right, any type of birthday related item is good! Create something fabulous, and head on over to the Stampin' Royalty and link it up!
Check out this new stamp, you can get the whole Vintage Verses stamp set FREE with any $50 purchase, how cool is that?! I love the hip and trendy fonts, this stamp set will be a keeper. You can shop 24/7 right from home at my ONLINE STORE right now and pick up this great set for yourself.
Can you tell what I stamped the image on? It is the new canvas creations, it has a nice vintage worn feel to it, I am sure that it would fray nicely, but I didn't try that yet. I stamped in raspberry ripple ink for a darker look. My big shot cut through this canvas fine, but I did need to use an extra shim for a nice sharp cut.
I received a cutie birthday card from Patti Willey, that used this stamp, and was die cut the same way, layered and pierced and oh so pretty. I borrowed this look from her, check out Patti's blog, she has some really pretty cards to share.
- Sew the long running seam tightly
- instead of 1/4 inch cuts in the ribbon, make them wider, close to 1/2 inch
- DO NOT pull on the ribbon too much, really you want to tie the thread and set the back with a glue gun, and walk away. If you don't, you will get one that looks like this:
While it is pretty, it was loosing the threads and shedding everywhere, and it looks very, very messy, so unless that is the look you are going for, the less you work with it, the better.
A close up look at the fabulous new More Amore SDSP, even though it is a "valentine" themed paper, you can still use it for other occasions.
I used this great sketch from The Paper Players. I have not played there for a while now, shame on me! It is another great challenge blog and one I frequent often, they have an amazing design team as well.
There you have it, a fun Birthday Chic (or chick) however you want to say it, card, both applies.
Paisley Anne, our new Whippet puppy is doing great, she is growing fast, as you can see. She is about five months old now, and has been completely house trained since she was about three months old, wow. Paisley is super smart, our smartest puppy yet, and oh so sweet. Here she is snuggling with her new favorite toy, and her best big sister Schyler. She is a great addition to our family.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
