Sew, What's New

Hey, everyone!  Today is my Pink By Design DT day, and I have a card and some firsts to share with you. This card is my FIRST attempt at using a background stamp, my FIRST attempt at using an image stamp, and my FIRST Cricut-less card! Whew! It came together pretty easily, though. That's always a plus, especially since half of my crafty stuff is sitting in boxes right now. :o(

When I started planning this card, I knew I wanted to try to go Cricut-less, and I knew which stamps I wanted to use, but I didn't know where to begin. So, I checked out some sketches I had saved on my computer until I found one I thought would fit the card I wanted to create. Here's the one I chose:

And, here's the card I made:

For this card, I used Pink By Design's Sewing Background Stamp for the yellow background, then I inked up the edges with a little distress ink. The sewing machine came from Pink By Design's Sew Lovely stamp set, and the sentiment came from Pink By Design's Material Girl. I also added a little distress ink to the cardstock I stamped the image on. A scalloped border punch and a few buttons later, and my Cricut-less card was all done! I hope you like it!
