Sew Happy! 57

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, December 7, 2010 @ 7:20 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Almost half way to the weekend already - time surely flies when I have the day off from work! I started the day off with a visit to the Dentist then rewarded myself with a good work out at the gym and lunch with my hubby :) LOL I DREAD visiting the Dentist but unfortunately, it is one of those necessary evils.
I had a chance to sneak in some crafty me time so I made this card featuring Taylored Expressions Sew Happy "petite" set from Taylor's December Release. Don't let the word "petite" fool you - this set is full of amazing images and sentiments!
After inking up the dress form image, I colored it using Copic Markers then using a S4-110 Classic Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image. I popped it up using foam adhesive square on top of a layer that was cut/embossed using a S4-294 Beaded Oval die template.
Finished it off with a tag displaying the sew happy sentiment. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this Mercy's awesome sketch challenge: MTSC103
Thanks so much for looking! I hope you have a great evening/day :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Taylored Expressions Sew Happy
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-294 Beaded Ovals, S4-110 Classic Ovals LG, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon Thrift Store
Ink: Copic Markers

Sneek in some crafty time and creating a beauty in such a short period of time? It would take me a week. No...to be honest; I am not so talented and able to create something as stunning as this beauty. But I love to look at all those handmade beauties from you. So lovely to look at and tons of inspiration. It's always amazing and I am always saying...wow...awww....ohhhh.
Yes I am a fan :)
Have a great day!
