Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 16 ~ Happy Valentine's Day
How sweet is this Red Heart Cross Stitch Pillow/Cushion from the chocolatecreative etsy shop? I love these sweet cross-stitched designs...so perfect for Valentine's Day inspiration!
To join us in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 16, simply create a papercrafted project using these colors (or similar shades), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call, link your posting back here to the Stamping Stage, and then come back to enter your name and the exact link to your project in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Saturday, February 13th at midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 16 project.
Those who are chosen as Show Stoppers will be awarded this badge to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge submissions!
I have been wanting to try stitching on my cards for some time now...this inspiration photo along with the yummy colors helped me take the plunge:) Here's the card that I was inspired to make!
Love You Much
I stitched the Real Red cardstock onto the Kraft card base. Then I layered a piece of Bella Bleu DSP trimmed with a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock that was punched with the Pinking Hearts Border punch. The main image was stamped in Black Stazon and then colored in with Sahara Sand marker. The Real Red Corduroy button was threaded with Linen Thread and attached to the flower with a glue dot. Lastly, the Real Red Satin ribbon was tied around the DSP panel and all was centered and adhered to the layered card base....and there you have it...my very first sewn card!
