We Make A Perfect Fit

A little vintage sewing card for my partner in crime.
Everyone needs a new summer dress and
I thought this would right up her alley.

My graphics come from the internet.
I used Spellbinder and Nestabilities dies, stamps are from
Crafty Secrets and Papertrey Ink.

I printed a real dress pattern onto brown tissue paper
and stuffed the dress envelope.


Thanks for popping in today, enjoy the Memorial Weekend.

Wrinkle Free Distress Technique

Using Tim Holtz’s Wrinkle Free Distress Technique, which you can find
here I came up with this tag. 
This was way to fun and I will try again.

The colors of stains were Tarnished Brass, Broken China and Squeezed Lemonade. Using an embossing folder from Sizzix, (TH Alterations) I embossed the top and bottom of the tag, and rub on more Tarnished Brass Stain.
The Young Lady image and It Takes Courage are from Alluring Impressions. The remaining images are also from Tim Holtz collection. For the rayon seam binding it to was distress with the same inks to match the tag.
I used a wooden stick pin (or Hat Pin) and added broken glass beads, which I added a 3D sticker to the top. The top butterfly got some of Tim’s clock hardware and a glass bubble bead.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother’s Day, thanks so much for letting me share with you today.

New Toys

Hello Again, I’m feeling much better, for now. After two weeks of back problems, today I can stand to be up-right.
Thought I would share with you a fun technique called Gesso Resist with Distress Stains,

Sorry my pic’s are so dark, raining again and it’s only 38.
IRL this tag with clock is so bright and colorful.
I ordered the new Clock die from Tim Holtz.
#658571 (Pocket Watch Frame)
A Dear Friend sent me some stamps, (and I hope she is well?)
So both the clock and tag contain her new stamps.
Also a Thank you goes out to Linda Coughlin my order came in just in time to play with this technique.
Hope you have time to check out this Gesso Resist TQ.
Have a wonderful week-end, Stamping Hugs Vada
