Sweet Darling ~ Card

Sweet Darling

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!
