Sew-N-Sew At FSC

Firstly I want to say hello and welcome to Laura who is joining Fashionable Stamping Challenges this week but sadly our teemie Fashion Stampette Silvia has decided to step down so I just want to say good luck Silvia in wherever your new journey takes you sweetie pie.

This fortnights challenge at FSC is one of my faves as sewing is something that I have always loved doing. Each fortnight one of the DT’s get to pick the theme and I have Sue to thank for choosing this one.

Isn’t the stamp pretty it’s one from our sponsor Flonz Crafts and to make it easier for you I have left a link here of where to buy her.

The card was made by stamping the image onto gauze, putting some wadding behind before stitching around the edge. I die cut a frame and then stitched around the edge with a zig zag and a straight stitch.

Did something that I haven’t done before I added some Sepia Accents to her hair and dress which made it perfect to add little stray pieces of material. Stamped onto the bottle top but it looked to neat so I sanded some ink off. You just have to pop on over to see all the Design Teams projects they are amazing and while you’re there you might just as well enter because you never know it might be you who wins the $20 to spend at Flonz’s Store.

    Hi Shirley…how do you do it! This is about as feminine and girly as any piece can be. I really love the naturalness and softness of the button piece too. So many gorgeous elements to see.

    Hi Shirl, your card is absolutely beautiful, so feminine. The little ‘stray’ pieces of fabric on her dress look amazing! Love the bottle cap too and of course, the scissors. A wonderful make. Thanks so much for your visit and lovely comment, it is much appreciated. Hugs, Anne x PS – How wonderful to have Laura on your team now too, her work is superb.
