Stamp & Create ~ New Monthly Challenge & New Products

Happy Monday! We awoke to MUCH cooler and LESS humid temperatures this morning. Whew! What a relief. Yesterday was just overwhelmingly hot and humid. We all spent much of the day indoors watching the Olympics.

The card I have to share today is for this month’s Stamp and Create Monthly Challenge which is Sewing. So, machine-stitched, hand-stitched, even faux-stitiched, as long as you have so sewing on your card. I think even the new Magnolia images that feature Tilda sewing would work :) I am totally in love with them and am working on a fun project featuring them :)

002 copy

I opted for some machine-stitching pulled out my trusty little mini sewing machine to add some zig-zag machine stitching to one of the panels. The image that I have used is one of Whimsy Stamps Little Cottage Cuties; Chloe. I adore her little freckles and cute hair-do. I colored her with Copic Markers and then added some prismacolor pencils to add additional shading to her clothes and hair. I also added a slight shadow around her using the Slate Blue pencil.

I cut the image out using a Spellbinders die and added some shading around the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. This made the panel match the papers better.  The patterned paper is one of my favorites from Simple Stories Fab-U-lous 6x6 pad. The tag is also from the same paper pad and I added that Technique Tuesday sentiment to the top of it with some Versafine brown ink. To embellish my card, I used various paper flowers as well as a pearl flourish from Kaiser Craft which I cut up so as to add the bling where I needed it.

There are lots of new products over at Stamp and Create!
