A Sunday Full of Challenges

Good morning and thanks for dropping by on this beautiful Sunday morning!! I have been stamping up a storm this weekend...that is when I wasn't washing clothes, mopping floors, and feeding horses....my DH should go fishing more often...LOL!!! My friend and I went to see Eat, Pray, Love Friday night....I loved it but she fell asleep twice....maybe we should have gone to something a little more exciting...LOL!!! Anyway...on with the show.....

I made the first card for the challenge on Paper Sundaes Challenge to make a card with fall colors. The Rubbernecker Cornucopia image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. It was then cutout and popped up .....the nesties shape was first sponges with Pumpkin Pie while it was still in the die. The sentiment is from a Just Rite oval frame...it was stamped, cutout, and attached with dimensionals over a squiggly line I drew on the background. The buttons strung through the twine, wrinkled seam binding, button, lace, leaves, and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker, Just Rite Autumn Blessings
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper: Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Fall Harvest dp from K&Co.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Buttons, Twine, Lace, Wrinkled Seam Binding, Prima Leaves, Metal Leaf, Copics

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Stampin' Sisters in Christ - fall colors
2. Thoughtful Thursday - anything that starts with a C (cornucopia)
3. My Sheri Crafts Challenge - Fall/Autumn
4. Wee Memories - orange and string (I used twine)

Jen has a great sketch this week on her i {heart} 2 stamp blog. I took a few liberties by using the scrunched lace and tilting the image layer just a little. The Crafty Secrets Material Girl stamps were stamped onto the vanilla cs with Memento Tuxedo Black and the edges were sponges with Tea Dye Distress Ink and distressed. Sewing and distressing was done around the background layer and the twill, button, twine, and the button on the image layer are the finishing touches.

Hi Joan, I adore the shabby sewing card you made with our Material Girl set! Too bad it's sold out but it's now a Digital Art Stamp Set so I just pinned your pretty sample on our Pintrest Sewing samples board. I would love to send you some of our new Digital Sewing Stamps and Sewing Printables and paper we are just finishing up and I'm trying to find your email address. So if you see this comment please contact me.
Thanks! Sandy sandy@craftysecrets.com
