I'm late late late to the party, but squeezing in an entry for the CR84FN Design Team Call. The inspiration photos there are always so lovely, but for whatever reason, I honestly thought the deadline wasn't till next week. Oops. (This back to school craziness has my mind in a spin.)
It's been a while since I've done some late night stamping (and it was a late night) but the house was finally quiet, and I had a beautiful inspiration photo to work with. Thank goodness for the possibility of an extra cup of coffee this morning, it's going to be a rough one.
I knew I had some denim-ish papers in that scrap bin, but then, I tripped across this chippy blue paint one, which to me still reads rustic, denim loved and worn.
I'm using a sentiment from Vertical Greetings and I'm really having a blast with the new Flower Medley Die-namics. In particular, I love how it looks cut from felt and with a twine tied button sitting right on top.
All these papers are directly from the scrap-bin, nothing is a matched set today. I'm using Hot Fudge Cardstock for all my accents, and loads of distress ink on all the papers. I'll admit that I totally decimated the desk that was at long last finally clean and organized. I'm going to need to sort that out today, but at 1am, that was just not a priority.
Admittedly, deciding to zig-zag stitch a layer after the card is fully assembled isn't ideal, but that certainly didn't stop me. I meticulously pulled off all the dimensional foam I'd added to the cardbase and then zipped the card through. I may or may not have, (read that as most certainly did) hold my breath while stitching and prayed that I didn't mess up the card. In the end, it was just the touch I needed. Phew!
Be sure to join the girls at CR84FN to see this week's inspiration, as well as all the samples that have been loaded. Oh won't you please wish me luck? Thanks a million!
Here's links to all the products I've used in today's post. Thanks SO much for stopping by today!
