DCM-A Visit To The Haberdashery Department
Posted by manicstamper on July 14, 2007
Apologies for neglecting the Blog for a few days. I’ve not been quite myself and haven’t felt like doing much apart from lolloping about on the sofa and sleeping. Never mind…….feeling much better now.
Well over at Daring Cardmakers this week it’s Gillians turn to set the challenge and here is what she has to say…….
G’day all, Gillian here, and it’s my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it’s got something you’d find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there….maybe it’s buttons, a zip, hook & eye’s, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread….
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I’m going to add one more rule….
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can’t be your only haberdashery item….
The card above is my ‘no sew, sewing themed card’. No sew because after the last disaster I was a bit wary about getting the sewing machine out. So this one is held together with carpet tape and a prayer………lol!!!
I have used part of an old sewing pattern and a Tim Holtz stamp to decorate the front of the card and then cut a ‘V’ shape from the front and inserted the zip. I have also used bits of lace and ribbon, buttons, a piece of an old diary page and a pin.
Thanks for that Gillian………what a fab challenge.
I need to get my head together now and work on some samples for workshops and my gallery over at TandaStamps. I am so happy that Alex sent me a set of the new Vintage Ads stamps and I am looking forward to doing something with those.
Also just wanted to say welcome to Anna Moore who has just joined the TandaStamps Design Team. You will find a link to Anna’s blog in my UK Blogs list…..please go and take a look at her work……it is fabulous.
Well back to work for me then.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
