Make it Monday #65 - Shabby Strawberry Card
video and I loved the card that was created for inspiration. I just have been playing with stamps in some stolen moments and had a few cards to make that I just needed to get done. I looked down at my drawing table and I discovered I had all kinds of patterns floating around LOL - now they weren't patterned paper scraps per se. They were pieces of stamped images - mostly background stamps. I thought well HEY... I'm gonna give this a try! And a card was born :-) I used all stamps from Papertrey Ink: Strawberry Patch, Polka Dot Basics, BB: Tintypes, BB: Gingham. The sentiment is a partial stamping of a sentiment from the Celebrations set. I used my circle Nestabilites and accompanying scallop circle, as well as the Papertrey Double-Ended Banner die. I found a button and threw that into the mix. And I did a little stitching on my machine. Oh and the strawberry image is stamped but the background around it is colored with a Copic marker. I am so glad I gave that a try - I really like all the patterns together! Now off to go out to dinner with my family for Mother's Day (the husband has to go out of town tomorrow afternoon so we're doing our little celebration this evening). Have a good nite!
