Another card using images from the Taylored Expressions stamp set Whimsical Wishes and the related metal dies I just purchased. The background on the kraft paper is Hero Arts' Graph Background stamp, also newly purchased!
I CASE'd the design from a card Shari Caroll posted on SSS's blog hop last week. I borrowed the color scheme, too!! I am loving the summer colors.
I went through a drawerful of older Stampin' Up inkpads and to my delight discovered that most of them are still inky!! No need to purchase any more ink pads! I must own waaaay more than a hundred!! And so many of the colors are trendy today!
The stitching on this card almost didn't happen! My trusty $79 WalMart seewing machine decided to freeze up when i began sewing on this card. An internal exam revealed a clogged mechanism; fuzzy lint from months of stitching on paper with no maintenance!! After taking the bobbin carrier apart for cleaning, I struggled for almost an hour to put it together correctly, and of course by then the needle had become unthreaded and presented another challenge!! Thank goodness for needle threaders and magnifying glasses! Happy to report, the little machine that could is back in the sewing business!!
It's been a quiet weekend here; it snowed yesterday and today it is sunny and cold. Spring must be around a distant corner!!
So glad you stopped by!!
