Both of these cards were made using the same stamp set and paper pack from Close To My Heart. They illustrate the variety you get when you purchase our stamp sets and paper packs. The paper pack is my new fave because of it's cheery colors, it's called Mayberry. The stamp set brings back childhood memories of my mom's sewing machine and is called Tailor-Made.
The center of this card began life as an ATC (Artist's Trading Card) that I created for a swap. The sentiment is from the Simple Stitches stamp set. I used Copic markers to color the top of the pin cushion and the sewing machine. I gave the sewing machine a 3D effect by using CTMH's foam adhesive to adhere and cutout 2nd image over the bottom image. To make it easy on me, I only cut out the main part of the sewing machine and then the details show from the 1st image. I just love the little tomato pin cushion, my mom had one just like it. I used a little liquid glass on the pins to give them a bit of dimension. CTMH ink colors used were Goldrush, Black and Holiday Red. Buttons were from my stash. The white "stitching" was made with a white pen.
