Sew Easy

Happy Wednesday!

Donna Phelan here hosting this week's Challenge!  Come join in all of the fun and play along!


This week's Challenge is, 

Sew Easy

You must use some type of stitching on your card.  It could be from a sewing machine, or a stitched die of some sort, or even creating a hand stitched look using a white gel pen, the choice is yours.  Please label what you have used for my poor old eyes......don't make me put on my 'crafting glasses'.

Remember if you do not follow the challenge, your entry will not qualify for the prize.  


 This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele , and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 
The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

  2 Prizes
2 - $15 Gift Certificate each to the STORE

Here is my first project:
 and Casual Comfort, and matching die set, Casual Trees.   This is a double layered Stitched Tag.  Inks in Pirouette Pink and Black Licorice.  Gingham Ribbon, Baker's Twine and Pink Adhesive Rhinestones as accents.
2nd Project
My background was created using the same stamp, Curtis Background  and ink colors.  Once mounted on black card stock I whipped out my Janome Mini sewing machine and stitched all around the edges in a deep pink thread.  Sentiment from the 3 In A Row stamp set.  I also made chipboard hearts using the matching Tic Tac Toe die.  Half a Doily, Heart Button, Baker's Twine and Pink Adhesive Rhinestone for accents.
