Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: If You Don't Do It, It Will Keep Encouraging You!I woke up yesterday morning with the idea to stamp on a transparency and sew it to the front of the card. For some reason though, when I got into the craft room, I didn't want to follow through with it. I'm not sure why since I did spent the day creating. I couldn't shake the idea though - it kept coming back into my mind and finally, as the evening began to creep along toward night, I finally followed through. This is the card that came of it. I'm glad the thought kept encouraging me :)
I took a small piece of transparency (you can use a window sheet or the transparencies you use in your at-home printer) and stamped it with the retired Antique background stamp and white staz-on ink. You know how I'm not the most patient person when it comes to letting ink dry, so I encouraged the drying process with my heat tool - being very careful not to melt the transparency in the process! I then sewed the transparency onto the card. Next came a piece of white organza ribbon sewn to the front - over the transparency. I stamped the "bliss" greeting from the Bliss sale-a-bration stamp set by coloring it with my Pretty In Pink and Early Espresso markers to make it two-toned. It was stamped onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the Curly Label extra large punch. I sponged the edges with Pretty In Pink ink and then sewed it onto the card with a zigzag stitch across the middle. I added the rhinestone jewels for a bit of bling :) I hope you like it!
