Sewing Collage

Hi guys!  How is this one for different?  From frilly to a grungey-ish distressed sewing card.  One of the die sets that is on the shows are Sewing Elements by Nina Brackett.  Sewing stuff is very popular at the moment and these have been so much fun to play with too.  I got to pull out my stash of fun buttons for this one!  My background paper was kraft card that was printed with a ruler background so I just had to use it!  I did a bit of stamping behind it with some new sewing stamps that are on the show too.  The ornate scissors are part of that set and I stamped and cut them out and mounted them up a bit.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the new Swatch label set.  I used the thread die to cut it out and wrapped it with some twine.  I added a piece of hessian across the background and a selection of matching buttons to create a sort of sewing collage piece.   I finished it off with a big bow from one of my favourite new ribbons, our striped grosgrain.  Not to have a naked bow, I topped it with a large black button and a piece of natural twine.  I did distress all the edges of my card with my scissors, hopefully giving it a more vintage look (at least that was the plan!)  Not my usual style, but I hope you like it!  The shows start today at noon so I hope you will tune in to see the rest of the samples!  All for now, Sue x

WOW. I wouldn't do something like this as it's not really me but not everything can nor should be. I love the colour the seemingly erratic higgledepiggledy placement of all the embellishments. I'd think that this took you some time to do but I've seen you on C&C so I'm not sure. Keep it up!!!

In My pre cardmaking time (or lately cutting lots of dies with no plan but they're there when I need them sort of plan)I used to sew and my friends still do so these would be great to send them.
Looking forward to the shows today Sue, thanks in anticipation.Mabex

jean.phillips1 said...

Morning Sue

This is a not your usual pretty card, didn't used to like the shabby look but it is growing on me and I do like this one. Can't wait for 12 o'clock, will be glued to the TV for all your shows. Love Jean x

Anthea said...

Kazbomps said...

Hi Sue. I really like this card but I can never bring myself to give my cards that scuffed edge look. Maybe I just like neat edges too much. Got the timer set for all the shows today and cant wait for all the ideas and demos. Karen x

Christine said...

Love the sentiment, but with the new postage rates I shall only make a card like this one where I can deliver by hand. At 60p for first class post, heaven knows what postage for a 'large' card will be!
Thank you, Sue, for more inspiration

Sue J said...

A very different card today, but a beauty none the less. Good luck for today. :)

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue,
Love the card and it's sent me right down memory lane as the ornate scissors are the sort that were in all little girl's sewing boxes when I was young and were the only kind I owned. Now they're vintage!
And I do wish I'd still got some of the hessian sacks my dog biscuits came in (by train!)to craft with, but in those days we stuffed them with hay to make comfy cushions for dog baskets and when they wore out they ended up in the compost heap.
Thanks for the memories!
Looking forward to watching the shows very much - not long now! Sue x

What a wonderful card Sue.

lindyloo12 said...

I have the show recording as I type, that way I can look at it again and again. This card is not my style but I can see the appeal for those who like the grungy style. You do all types of card well Sue which shows off exactly how talented you are.

Cazann49 said...

Hi Sue, have just tuned in to the first show of POTW looking forward to your demos!! Although this card is different to your usual style I like the way you've put it together with all the buttons.You are an inspiration to us all because you can adapt anything you are given to use to make a lovely card...Have a great week at CR&CR...am recording all the shows..:)..xx

Redanne said...

It may be slightly different for you but it is still amazing, I love that sewing theme and the slightly grungy look. The ribbon is fab.

gwen70 said...

Another great card Sue. Just had a look at the noon show, wonderful dies so far, going to watch more now

Nikbee said...

A gorgeous card. I love sewing themed creations as they remind me of my Mum. She is a gifted seamstress and we were surrounded by fabric, buttons, sewing things while we were growing up.

CraftyJo said...

It's hard to believe *you* actually did this one :-D It's so not your style. I love it though, being a bit of a sewist myself I appreciate the whole theme.

Sue Pass said...

Oooh this is right up my street! Am watching you at the moment Sue, and your samples are soooo beautiful - have had to order my goodies before I looked at your blog though. I especially liked this card as I have been dressmaking for more years than I care to remember and anything to do with sewing is a definite 'yes' for me. Can't wait for the next card!!!
Hugs from a blissful Sue!

A very different card for you Sue, not sure if it's one that I would make but nevertheless very impressive. Love the striped ribbon. I really enjoyed the two programmes that I watched on TV today, well done. Would have liked some of the dies but can't afford such an enormous outlay at this moment. as they are not available individually, I'll have to look elsewhere. Well done to you, good 'performances'

Lindyloo said...

Hi Sue,
I really love your frilly, girlie cards but after seeing this card today and the others on the show I think you have a talent for more than you give yourself credit for. I especially love the blue card with the pin cushion, houndstooth BP and actual stitching, it is gorgeous (and the new camera guy did a good job of the close up didn't he!).
You had so many beautiful cards on the shows that I was in awe. You must have worked everyday of your break with mum to prepare them all, so I'd like to thank you very much from all your grateful followers. I know you have to do them as part of the job, but you always seem to go the extra mile in making them really special for us by giving us lots of variety of style and usage. The inspiration is astounding.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
Regards and best wishes Linda x

Vanessa Skinner said...

Evening Sue,

I have found your site at last I watch you every time you are on Create & Craft and now I will be able to get more inspiration from you on line. I have got both the Cuttlebug and recently purchased the Grand Calibure, I think these tools are the best thing since sliced bread. I know some people proffer the electronic cutting machines but I think there is nothing to beat designing your own designs and doing it yourself. I will be looking in on you daily, thanks for all your hard work.

Regards
Vanessa
