Just Playing.

Two cards I made while on holidays in Brisbane.
The first card using the new mini rosette with a Kaiser brad. Pattern paper for background. Changed colour of white lace with antique linen distress stain.
Yes....I just had to use one of the ladies from my fave stamp set again! :)

Next is a sewing theme card. Double sided pattern paper from Kaiser was the inspiration. Coloured the measurement tape twill with Vintage Photo distress stain and wiped some of the excess of with a dry cloth. The spool is from Tim Holtz Sewing Room die plate. The spool was coloured with Broken China stain,edges inked with Vintage Photo ink.Brown and white twine wrapped around the spool. Three buttons completes the card.

While at the Brisbane show, I was hoping to find a stamp set with just sewing themed words.No luck! I feel it needs a sentiment. Thinking 'SEW Happy for you'
'SEW Special', etc. Any ideas would be most welcomed!


  1. Gorgeous cards Shirl... love the mini rosette and the sewing theme is fabulous...
