You're Sew ....

Hi Crafty Friends,

t's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lois Bak, our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is Sewing Machine Day. So our challenge this week is to make a card which has some stitching on it – either actual stitching, faux stitching or stitch-edged dies. 

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

I needed a sewing themed birthday card for my friends birthday which is coming up at the end of the month, so that was the perfect theme for a challenge. Although I would have preferred this day to be after her birthday instead of before, but I have told my friend not to look lol!

For my card today I have created a Reveal Wheel Card using the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die set. To decorate the card I used the Sewn with Love Clear stamp set, which I meant to use for her card last year and forgot I had it.

For the background of my card I used Concord & 9th's Stitched Turnabout Stamp, stamping the image using Distress Oxide inks in  Broken China, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio

Here is a look at each of the 4 different sentiments which are revealed when you turn the wheel at the side of the card.

For the inside of my card I added a sentiment which is included in the Stitched Turnabout stamp set and more of the images from the Sewn with Love stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Your design skills are spot on to every detail. The papers, the stamps, the way your wheel works into to design in the bg circular pattern in the paper. Just stunning in every way.
