Below are the stamps and dies I am featuring in my post today, either in my two new creations or sneak peeks from the past few days:
My first sample for today features the "Quilts" stamp set, ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, and the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies. The quilt image was stamped in black, colored with purple/yellow/green/peach/pink markers, then the center was cut out with the 2nd smallest die in the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies set. The heart was made into a five-layer button (see tutorial here). The first two words of the sentiment were stamped on white, then cut out by hand and popped up with foam tape; the 'sew' word was stamped onto the card base through the heart opening (using scratch paper to mask each side). The border frame was created by mitering four borders cut out with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, then sewing embroidery thread through the openings.
My next sample features the image and a sentiment from the "Sewing" set, along with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies and ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies once again. The stitched border image and sentiment were stamped in black onto ivory cardstock, then matted with some aida cloth which was stitched with blue embroidery thread. The plaid strip is from some scrap fabric which has been in my stash for many years. The heart die cut through the fabric easily; after adhering it to cardstock and cutting out the holes with a Cropodile, Glossy Accents was added. The same thread used for the stitching was used in the button and also threaded through the border die cut.
Below are three sneak peeks from over the weekend, which were previously blogged. Hold your mouse over each photo to see which products were used.
Thanks for hanging out with us today!!
