I Challenge You Wednesday - Sewing Image

My Friend picked the challenge for this week -- to use the above sewing machine stamp (PSX) on our creation.  I haven't had a lot of extra time to stamp lately, so one creation is all I finished.....BUT it did take me several days to complete it (working on it bit by bit when a free moment occurred.)

Here's how the card went together:
  1. I picked six different BLUE paper scraps from my scrap bin
  2. I punched out six squares from each paper selection with my 3/4 in. square punch
  3. Glued all the pieces to a white piece of cardstock
  4. Used my Singer Pixie to stitch zig zag stitches (with blue thread) all over my little quilt
  5. Stamped my Sewing Machine Stamp (PSX) onto a piece of Clear Embossable Window Plastic (Gary M. Burlin & Co.) with  Versa Mark
  6. Embossed with Black Embossing Powder
  7. Attached clear layer to my quilt using four turquoise eyelets
  8. Layered the quilt on white/turquoise cardstock
  9. Punched two sections of border (one white/one turquoise) using Threading Water border punch (Fiskars)
  10. Attached the border to the bottom of the card
  11. Hand cut small tag
  12. Stamped and Embossed (white embossing powder) sending my love sentiment (Studio G)
  13. Traced around tag with white paint marker
  14. Adhered two branches to each side of the tag -- punched with my Martha Stewart branch punch
  15. Adhered two (homemade - tutorial link on side) rolled turquoise roses to each side of the tag (two white leaves underneath - leaf punch)
Now go here to see what my friend did with this stamp.

    Oh, wow!! When I first looked at it, I thought, "You've got to be kidding me. She handcut all those intricate details??" :)

    What a genius idea to use window plastic. I'll definitely be filing that idea away for later! Where did you get your plastic?

    This is a gorgeous card, and I'm going to have to remember it for the scrap quilt cards I like to make so often.

    Thank you for your sweet compliments.....I got the clear embossable plastic in PA - at Nora's. She had several cards made up using it. Their idea was to stamp on it with Staz-on and then flip it over and fill it in with glitter. Very gorgeous cards, but you have to have just the right stamps to make it turn out right.
