You are sew CrafTy!

Weekend is just around the corner and I am excited because the weather is great with the rain pouring in and weekend would be ideal for a small getaway with DH :)

Today I am sharing a card using the colors from Color Cue {16} and the inspiration comes from the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. I was so excited those colorful spools of thread because I knew my recently purchased Lawn Fawn Sew Lovely set has a cute spool stamp :D

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sew lovely,Smitty's ABC),; ink: Momento (Tuxedo Black), Unity Co. (French lilac);  Embellishments: Maya Road Chipboards (Brackets),embroidery floss

For this card, I stamped the spool on craft paper, cut it out and wrapped the embroidery floss around them. Then I stamped the needle from the same set and inserted it in the spool. For the sentiment, I masked of lovely and used the alphabet stamp set to add Crafty.  To finish off the card, I added brackets from Maya Road.  And with all the spool of threads and a needle, this card fits perfectly for the I'm Sew Excited! Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
 
Here is a closeup of the lovely spools


And before I sign off, I wanted to thank all of you for the tremendous response on my Guest Blogger post at Do More With Less. Your feedback and appreciation really means a lot to me.

I would love for you to play along my challenge. Please remember that you can use any kind of embossing - dry or wet. And here is a small tip if you do not have embossing powder or cuttlebug, you can scor your paper to achieve embossing. Check out my card here using the same technique. I hope you got the hint. *wink*

Thanks for visiting!!
