Sew Mad!

My goodness I've had a busy evening! After work I popped by mum's and stayed for a cup of tea and a natter...I then headed off to the gym for a mini workout and finally home for dinner and a quick card making session! Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight!!

If its Monday it must be a new fab challenge from the lovely Cupcake ladies....this week the challenge is "sew mad"...they want to see projects which feature some sewing...it can be real or faux...as long as there are some stitches on your card! For some inspiration pop by the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I know you saw this stamp only yesterday, but I really, really like it!


I've used a square card blank and added layers of purple backing papers which I have stamped a pretty edge on. Each layer is stuck down with 3D sticky pads near the edge to add a brilliant dimension to the card. I then added my teacup image which has been coloured with Promarkers and my sentiment. Finally I attached a little light purple backing paper at the top of the card and added some cute faux stitching. The inspiration for the layering of the backing papers came from Quick Cards magazine and I think it looks fantastic.

Thanks for popping by today,
