Hey stampin' friends! Hope you all had a great Family day!!! I cleaned the house, whoo hoo,lol! Well, I did make a few cards too and this is the card I made this evening for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge. This week's sketch allowed me to sift through all the great MFT sentiments that I have for just the right one. I decided on this one, "Daughters are flowers that are forever in bloom", from a small sentiment set that I think came in the Baby Bump VIP kit, but I'm not sure. I teamed it up with some MME Alphabet Soup Boy and Girl papers. Did you notice? Yup, I sewed on my card...real sewing!!! I pulled out the old clunker of sewing machine that my mom gave me and I tried my hand at some real stitching...it is really wonky but I kind of like it! I distressed the edges of the papers so I'm just going to say that I wanted it wonky,smile! At least that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
I save clothing tags to use on my cards and the denim strip with snap is from a tag off a pair of my Hubby's jeans. I added the pretty flower that I made with my Die-namics rolled flower die, and I also use the Die-namics Flower trio and leaf die set. I cut the flowers from some Technique Tuesday Textile circles and scalloped circles that I had in my stash from my scrapbooking days. The Textiles have adhesive on one side so I placed a large textile circle on the patterned paper and then cut it out with the rolled flower die, crinkled it up in my hand a bit so that the edges of the fabric would fry, then rolled it up. The pattern paper shows on the inside of the rolled flower. I layered the rolled flower with one of the flowers that I cut from the pattern paper with the Trio flower and one of the Technique Tuesday Textile scalloped circles and I cut the the leaves from the textile circle as well.
Here is the inside. I used one of the sentiments from the My How You've Grown WTG set and stamped in on the kraft card that is cut with the die from the Die-namics Textile Rectangle die and stamp set. The sentiment "Happy B-day" is from a MFT Sentiment set but I'm not sure the name of it and I stamped it on a QuicKutz tag.
