Tara has a neat challenge for us this week at the Friday Mashup #178. I am utterly amazed week after week when I see what you crafty ones create for the challenges. And this week, I am really excited to see your cards and projects!
Grab a cup of something….I am going to get long winded
…thanks in advance for the therapy time, friends!
Now, I have to say…I really did attempt the “sewing on card stock” technique. My little RN was off of work and sat in my stamping room with me enjoying a good book while I played around with this challenge (priceless day). So, I have a witness that I got out the sewing machine, watched a few tutorials, and then attempted to sew on my card stock! Oh my, I changed up tensions and blah, blah, blah but all that needle did was make ugly holes in my paper and ball up on the opposite side of the paper. Ugh…
I was attempting to sew a vellum pocket like the card on p. 149 of the Annual Catalog and put some little circles in it. Well, since I could not get the sewing to work out for me, I decided to make a pocket with vellum and some SU Lullaby DSP using the SU Banner Framelits layered inside each other. I then added a little banner with DSP and vellum just adhered directly to the banner. I added some circles to the outside of the vellum, too. But I still did not have any stitching on my card!!! I tried my white gel pen that would not cooperate with me, either. So out came the Needlepoint Embossing Folders to the rescue. How did I end up spending so much time on a card? Once I started I just would not get it out of my head…
Now, you boys and girls go create something for this challenge
that does not drive you crazy!
