A Sewing Machine and Blooms


This is a combined post for my DT work at Stamping Sensations challenge and We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge.  Scroll down to see the second make.

At Stamping Sensations challenge the theme is "For a lady". I'm using another one of my new stamps from Crafty Individuals CI-545 for this card. I teamed it with some papers I had showing fashion images and some of my many sewing related dies.

Our sponsor this month is...

Crafty Individuals is an exciting web based venture into the creative world of crafts and altered art products and produce an eclectic range of unique and top quality art rubber stamps, cutting dies, masks/stencils and paper craft products.

The theme at We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge. this month is Beautiful Blooms and I decided to show case some of those smaller stamps in the larger sets that can get overlooked. I used Chocolate Baroque Patchwork Landscape and for the sentiment Amazing Mackintosh Words.

I used a small rectangle gelli plate to make three impressions with watercolours. Then I stamped onto each area and across the bottom to link it all together. 

The prize is from Chocolate Baroque as always and are stamps of the winners choice to the value of £25.

Lesley from Chocolate Baroque will be on the craft channel at 9am and 1pm on Friday 9th July showcasing some familiar stamp sets plus three beautiful new sets which you will not want to miss out on.

The CI image is very you Lynn and compliments perfectly by the fashion DP's and added sewing elements. I actually got my machine out last week with a view to sewing a card border, ended up repairing dog beds!

Like the way you have used the worker stamps on tour WLCB piece and the lovely hazy day feel of the Gelli background.

Hope you are feeling better today.

Both are so beautifully done Lynn. So pretty and feminine!
Two amazing creations, so different but both very impressive! Love so much the sweet vintage feel of the first one, such beautiful colours and the papers match so well the stamp!
The watercolour effect as background(s)of the CB stamps looks stunning, wow! Thanks for the inspiration!

Now you have got me singing the song 'A sewing machine, a sewing machine, a girls best friend, and so on.
Well before your time though.
Nearly every one had a singer hand working, hard work when electric ones came out.
A really lovely card, great image and a lovely background.

I love your Sewing machine creation, my mum had an old Singer machine when I was a kid, I remember her sat at it for hours making us clothes. It's a fab creation. I also love your inky blooms.
Happy crafting

Love the sewing themed card and gorgeous DP, very feminine in those pretty shades. The gelli plate impressions make a lovely backing for those pretty blooms.
