Hey, everyone! Happy Sunday! I am the hostess over at the Paper Players and our CAS challenge today is called Sew Much Fun! Sewing used to be at the top of my "favorite hobby list" but now I would have to say that stamping has replaced it! So I thought I could combine both and do a sewing-themed challenge!
I did THREE cards for my own challenge this week...my first one, I forgot the CAS part..so I'll share that one tomorrow! This jury is still out on this one as to whether it is as clean and simple as I would prefer, but I had my heart set on using this DSP, so I went for it anyway! (I think my teammates did a better job at the CAS part than I did!) Anyway, I used Narelle's FMS sketch for this week:
And here we go - it's bright, you might want to wear your shades, LOL!
The older paper from Cosmo Cricket called Material Girl was my inspiration....unfortunately, I blocked one of the model's heads, but hopefully you can see the other pattern designs! I used the sewing machine image and sentiment from SU's Puns from the Past, and added some stitched elements...the DSP and both circles...and added some retired ribbons in shades of green. I broke my own rule of not adding a button, only because I thought it would be fun to use some green cotton perle thread I picked up at a yard sale, and it added a cute element to the sewing theme! The larger circle was also stamped with the Linen background stamp!
And here's the second card I did for the challenge....same sketch, but I thought with all the diecutting and piecing of the quilt block, it might be a little fussy for the CAS challenge:
It will definitely be put to good use for some occasion!
The design team has some really cute and fun samples for you to check out:
Friday night was Cassidy's first father/daughter dance....a big evening! She has a sweater over the prettiest part of her dress....the bodice had pink sequins on it! She even had a little wrist corsage! So sweet!
