Sew Great!

Good morning!!  How y'all doing on this beautiful, albeit HOT day?  I'm making my post for The Scrapping Cottage today, because I'll be in Chicago at CHA come Friday.  Hopefully seeing and buying all kinds of cool new things!!  For this "sew great" card, I used one of the new Cottage Cutz dies from The Scrapping Cottage, designed by My Little Shoebox.  These adorable dies are made to coordinate with the wonderful papers, stickers, and embellishments that are already favorites of so many.  Adding dies to this already amazing line is a SUH-WEET deal!!

I used the Sewing Machine and Dress Form 4x4 die, and  I cut everything except the dress form with white card stock and colored with my Copics.  For the dress form, I used patterned paper, and just shaded with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen.  the sentiment is from a set of stickers that coordinated perfectly with this collection from My Little Shoebox.  I actually wrapped the spool of thread with embroidery floss, and threaded it around the machine.  I even added a little hand stitching for added texture and interest.  I really like the way this turned out, and it was "SEW" much fun!!!!  Does anyone else remember sewing machines that were colored similar?  I remember that we had a pink on in my Home Ec. Class.  It's so funny what we randomly remember.

Thanks for dropping by, have a blessed day, and happy crafting!!!

Hi Lorie!

I LOVE your card! I have two sewing machines that are similar to one on your card. One is a lite green (it was my bff's grandmothers) and the other is turquoise (it was my great aunt's). I have an old black one too, but the colored ones are so cool. I love them and wish I had room to display them... maybe one day. :)
