Sew Special

Happy Saturday!  How about a vintage look sewing card for today's post!  This is from designer Nina Brackett's new dies called Sewing Elements.  Don't you just love that old fashioned sewing machine?  It reminds me of the one my Mom had when I was growing up (a long time ago!LOL)  I created a distressed background using some Kaiser Craft papers that I had and by roughing the edges with my scissors.  I sewed around the edge (since it was a sewing card, I thought, why not!)  I added some crocheted ribbon and piece of fine tulle that I ripped to distress even more! On top of that, I added a large swatch square that I cut.  I inked it with pumice stone distress ink and stamped a couple of vintage buttons on it with a clear perfect medium pad.  I added my sentiment and an old button with a piece of twine tied into a bow.  I cut the sewing machine out of Co-ordinations card (black with a turquoise backing) and sanded the embossing to reveal the turquoise colour.  I mounted this on my Swatch square for my focal element.  I added a bow made from the aqua silky crush ribbon with a bit of the black tulle behind it.  In my craft stash, I had some ruler ribbon, so I made a flower out it and added it to the centre of my bow.  To complete the card, I added some black rhinestone swirls as an accent piece.  A little different, not my usual, but I hope you aren't disappointed!  All for now, Sue x

Maybe not your usual style but really beautiful, love the textures and the vintage feel. I got my heartfelt dies and stamps and am in the process of copying your iris card, thanks Sue for sharing and creating such wonderful works of art. I really appreciate being able to teach myself through your examples. Happy Easter X

Hi Sue,
really lovely card. I'm still waiting for my new dies to arrive from your shows. My post always takes a long time to arrive. I'm getting very impatient to try them out, and as I have ordered the dies you used today, it's making me more impatient. Well who knows they may turn up today. LOL I hope you and your family have a very happy Easter. Have good crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

HiSue, I don't think you ever sleep , you were very early with this post. The card is beautiful, I like the Bonsoir paper a lot, I like to see your cards that use papers as it does help to give those of us without many dies with inspiration. Thank you again, best wiahes Lesley x

Chris said...

Good morning Sue,
I really like the vintage and distressed look on this card, the colours are perfect too. My dilema today is, housework, gardening or crafting. I think I know what will win.
Thanks

Good morning Sue, know just the person this would suit, so will definitely be copying your example, you're such a brill tutor. I haven't got the sewing element dies, but the stamps arrived yesterday along with the card, which unfortunately was damaged (yet again a parcel arrives in bad condition!). I'll be using the stamp of the sewing machine to try a version of this lovely card. Take care Alison :)

This is such a stunning card! So well thought out and I love the vintage feel and colors. Even the square bit of cardstock has a pinked edge to go with the sewing theme. I learned to sew on a machine not quite this old, but similar. I'm sure my mother will recognize it. More gorgeous ribbon really brings it all together.

YorkshireLass said...

Another winner - love how the new swatch dies go so well with these sewing elements giving them extra dimension.

Pam said...

Morning Sue, it would be difficult to be disappointed with any of your cards - this one I think not so much distressed as vintage elegance. Love your colour choices.

Happy Easter to you and yours

Handijac said...

Hi Sue,

You're blog is soooo inspiring! I love your designs and always feel inspired to make cards after reading it. I love the sewing theme - it reminds me of my mum and getting into crafting at the tender age of 6, a lifetime ago!
Happy Easter,
Handijac

I too remember the vintage sewing machine, I wish they were around a few years ago when my aunt was alive. She was a brilliant dressmaker able to make all her own clothes, and would have loved cards with this theme. She was sewing, knitting etc into her 90's.
Lovely card.

lilygee said...

Hello Sue and all - this is such a sweet card with so much character - far from being disappointed I personally feel very inspired by it and sew love the stitching! (excuse the pun). I love those little gadgets they have now that sew all kinds of stitch holes on paper and then you sew through the holes by hand - would be nice if Spellbinders could make some dies like that - maybe some labels with cross stitched holes - really love sewing cards.
lots of love lilygee xxx

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Sue,
Wow, this is very different and again really lovely. As you know I am a big, big fan of your girlie girlie creations but now and again I just can't get enough of the shabby or grungey. Today, I am in love with the shabby girlie.
I like you, was brought up around a vintage sewing machine. My mum had a Singer treddle machine. My dad bought it for her before I was born and she used it regularly to alter clothers or recycle something of my parents to make clothes for us children. Being one of 7, money was tight but because of my dads many skills and mums craftiness with the sewing machine (she knitted also) we never went without. Funny how a card can evoke such wonderful memories.
Hope your Easter Sunday is a good day. Best wishes Linda x
