ODBDSLC71 - Think Seamstress!

Don't you just LOVE ODBD's new stamp release, Sew Special? And this week our challenge is to think notions and/or seamstress! We are looking for stitching, buttons, seam binding, pins! Anything that follows the theme. We want details! A little ribbon or lace won't do!

To make the challenge even more fun, Kelley will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, August 11. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use ODBD stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use ODBD stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by August 11 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC71. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

And here's my submission for the week...

This card was created to mimic a quilt pattern, Grandmother's Flower Garden. I used a paper punch to cut out 3 DP and then adhered them to a white card stock base. I stitched each one with my trusty sewing machine and ran the entire piece through my Cuttlebug to dry emboss. The entire "quilt" was aged with Ranger Distress Ink. You will notice a touch of paper punched lace peeking out along with some traditional lace. The scripture stamp (Sew Special Set) was highlighted with a Spellbinders die. The Pincushion Single stamp was colored with Copics and the thimble was highlighted with a sparkle glaze pen. The seam binding is a custom creation. Originally it was white but I spritzed my Scor-Pal (slick side) with water and Smooch Spritz and tossed. (Just like a salad...) The final result is a beautiful mottled pink color! Thanks as always for reading and be sure to check out the other ladies and their fabulous creations! Blessings...

Hey girl, just wanted to let you know that your card for today is absolutely amazing to say the least!! So much detail with thos punched DP's and the, makes it look like one of those comfy quilts. You have been putting that sewing maching you've bought not too long ago to good use. Makes me wish my regular machine was working :C. I used one of those $15 ones you get at Big Lots, sew only a straight stitch, if it is working ;D;D. Thanks for sharing this masterpiece! Have a blessed weekend! Hugs, Sabrina
