Sweet Darling ~ Card
Seam Binding and Archival Ink make for a fabulous combination. I wanted a little something different for the title of my card so I decided to stamp the wording onto seam binding. This effect reminds me of the cute satin tags I’ve seen on baby items in antique shops. And the best thing is this is a beautiful and super simple way to create unique titles for cards, tags and layouts. I mean really could it get any simpler? We are talking, ink & stamp, that’s it!
The patterned paper used on this card is by Pink Paislee. It’s their Cottage Farms Collection. What I love so much about this line is that it can look vintage or modern. I tell ya, that Rebecca is so awesomely talented and super sweet. I’m thrilled that I will get to spend a week with her and Heidi Swapp in Bellagio at A Kiss On The Chic’s Creative Retreat in Italy. Which by the way, you should put attending one of Laura McCullough’s Creative Retreats on your bucket list. She is the most incredible event planner. Every single detail is taken care of and you all know how I feel about details. She hardly had all the words out of her mouth when I said YES I would LOVE to teach at your event again.
Okay, back to the card… The stamp set used is from my Antiquated Collection ~ Sweet Little Girls stamp set. I think the little doll is so adorable and is perfectly sized for cards, tags and ATC’s. You can color her in perfectly using Distress Markers or Copics. But I decided to leave her as a plain line drawing just as you would find in vintage magazines since I had a lot of color and pattern going on in the background. And no card of mine would be complete without cream self adhesive pearls and Diamond and Platinum Stickles. It’s those little accents I love so much. And the cute scallop border is a Sizzix Bigz Die by Eileen Hull called Borders & Hydrangeas. I have a serious love for Eileen’s Sizzix dies and she’s pretty awesomely sweet too.
I’ll post another card tomorrow, so until then… Happy Crafting!
