Sentimental Sundays - Let's Get Sentimental

Wow this week has flown by! I can't believe it is already time for the new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week we are challenging you to "Get Sentimental" with us. Use a sentiment as a focal point for your project.



I love cards that use a sentiment for a focal point. I used a sentiment from the Gratitude Sentiments digital stamp set created by Raindrop Echo Designs (available on Whimsy Stamps). Verve Sketch VLVMar2011 (week 3) was the starting point for my card. Cream seam binding was dyed using an ink pad to match my papers. In real life, it is the exact color but the color changes a bit in the photo.
.
I hope you will join for our "Let's Get Sentimental" challenge at the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog.
.
Thank you for stopping by!



Supplies:

  • Stamps: Gratitude Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs available on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers & CS: PaperTrey kraft CS, Close To My Heart Perfect Day paper pack
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Sorbet ink (for dying the seam binding)
  • Tools: Sewing Machine, Stampin' Up edge punch, Martha Stewart leaft punch, 1" circle punch (for flower base)
  • Embellishments: Tattered Angels pearl glimmer mist, PaperStudio pearls, Hug Snug cream seam binding
