The challenge over at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ this week is to use at least 3 buttons on a card or project.

The SU “Pattern Pieces” stamp seemed to go along with this sew-y challenge.  It was stamped on regular gift wrap tissue paper which had been sponged with SU’s River Rock ink to give it that “real” pattern piece look and feel.

This card is very similar to a card found here I made a couple of years ago using a similar stamp from Inque Boutique’s “Victorian Dressmaker” set.   I’m not a fan of sewing, so not sure what it is about these sewing images that I just can’t seem to resist! But, I sure do like ’em.

Thanks so much for dropping by today and…
Happy Crafting!

  1. Love that tissue paper idea! And that sentiment is perfect. Unfortunately, the Murphy’s Law of sewing is: real bobbins always run out just when you are rounding the corner to sew the last seam!

  2. FABULOUS and FUN Susan!!

  3. Well you had me going there for a minute…I am a sewer and I thought this was a real pattern on your card. How clever and creative. I love it. This is just darling. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment.

    Bear Hugs,

  4. Adore the saying, very cute. Love the little envelope with the pattern in it. As one who has sewn most of her life, this is a great card. I see you are using the new MME papers. I just got them and think they are my favorite patterns to come along recently.
