sew. what’s new?


what’s new?

Nothing much new in my life…just enjoying some summer weather finally. Lake days are the best.

Today I’m “sew excited” to share a card for the latest Moxie Fab World challenge. The I’m Sew Excited Challenge. With a love of sewing, how COULD I resist?!

Want to play along? There’s still time if you hurry!

This challenge focuses on sewing icons rather than the stitching itself. Think buttons, patterns, dress forms, machines, spools…etc. etc. etc. Here’s what I’ve used…

Sewing icons…

  • tissue sewing pattern
  • pin cushion image
  • sewing machine image
  • vintage button
  • measuring tape (Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon)
  • chipboard scissors

I’ve also added in some machine stitching as every sewing themed project needs a little of that, right? Lastly the wide Light Teal ribbon is cut with pinking shears from my sewing box.

To create my image, I’ve used two distinct stamps. A sweet little sewing machine and a pincushion from the Hero Arts Sew Artsy stamp set. The pin cushion was stamped first as it is in the foreground. It was then masked with Eclipse  Tape and then the sewing machine was stamped. Love how they look together.

Quick Tip: Sewing tissue is really thin so folding it a few times before stitching it on adds more depth to the color of the layer.

Supplies: sewing pattern tissue, sewing machine, Sew Artsy  stamp set by Hero Arts, white cardstock by Bazzill, Copic Markers, Turquoise Leaf Trinket Pins by Maya Road, Vintage Button by Jenni Bowlin, Ruler Ribbon by Tim Holtz, Sew Cute Mini Chipboard Set by Maya Road, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by Tsukineko, embroidery floss by DMC,

Hope your day is “sew” special!
