Hey what's up baby

Friday, June 11, 2010
I absolutely love my holidays. Now that Semester is over, I'm just waiting to sit for my one and only paper before I am officially done with Uni. Now that I've got slightly more time on my hands than others, I'm finding myself perpetually cramping in my craft room once again. And this time I approached my ideas differently through sewing. It isn't surprising, the amount of times I've poked my fingers *ouch*. I made six (6) cards in total. For the first card, I created a quilted background and die cut it with SU! top note die.

After which I had the background cut out. I then tied it with brown grosgrain ribbon and punched out the sentiment with big oval punch and scallop oval punch.

Nothing to impress you all, but just a little novelty here. It involves a little bit of sewing and it's actually pretty fun. I bought a pack of felt from a craft store and decided to create something out of them. For the first four cards, I cased one of the card that Dawn created a while ago. Thank you Dawn for the permission :). I love how the works turn out. Absolutely lovely. Like I said, it's nothing too special apart from the pairing of a felt flower to a matching color. Hehehe. I made the flowers and the cards in such a way the color theme complimented one another.  Here are some pictures of each individual cards.

"Ms. White"

"Ms. Pink"

"Ms. Yellow"

'Any stamper knows that you can never have enough sentiments?'- from PTI. This is so true and I believe I can't agree more.  Do you see the sentiment? It's a new stamp set from PTI called Inside and Out: Thank you. The phrase and its saying is sooo perfect for any thank-you cards. And it is easy as 1-2-3.

The flowers with bling bling button

And now with their matching cards

This how the flowers look like. A poppy pin at the back. You can pin them anywhere. Bags, clothes, anywhere. This is my first attempt at them and I know I'll be creating more in the future; but with more materials to decorate them, like fur, leaves etc. Or you can attach it with a ribbon so it hangs at the door, mirror. Anywhere. :)

Last but not least,

Isn't this cute? I die cut the clouds out with felt and inked the edge with SU!'s Sahara sand ink. :) I made this card specially for a very special friend of mine, a pinch of boyish-ness emphasised with a small plane. I'm really glad to have known him and wish to show how much I truly appreciate this friendship.
