Hello fellow stampers! Happy Sunday and welcome to my first ever guest designer blog post! I was so excited to be asked to do this that I made 2 cards and then I couldn't decide which one to send so I sent both! Here is the first one I made. Knitting always reminds me of love. Living in Florida there is not often a need for knitting sweaters and scarves but I did it anyway when my children were little. I also sewed most of their clothes, they often matched. Ah - the good old days!
This card was made with a stamp set designed by Nina Bracket called "Nana's Needlework" and is sold by GinaK Designs. The designer paper was from BasicGrey called Nook and Pantry. I made the bow from little strips of ribbon and colored the yard with copics. I used some wood patterned paper for the baskets using paper piecing. The buttons were found in my pink button container. Yes - I really do organize by buttons (and just about everything else" by color.
The second card was also made with Nana's Needlework only with this one I used the wonderful quilt image. I actually made many quilts for quite a few years with my sister. We had a great time doing that and even sold a few at local craft shows. I paper pieced the quilt with DP from SU. The ribbon bow directions I found on this blog. (through Nina's blog where I first saw this flower style) It does require some drying time and strong glue. These were both fun cards to make and sewing on them was bringing back some wonderful memories.
Now hop on over to SSCC and upload your card for the challenge. Just do something with sewing, you can sew on the card or use a sewing theme and do some faux sewing using a piercing tool. I look forward to seeing all of your entries! Have a Blessed week! See you next Sunday.
