Jellypark Friends Challenge - Mother's Day/Important Female

Hello, my friends!
This is my last scheduled post before I return to blog land! :o)

There's a brand new challenge starting today over at Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog! It's "Mother's Day or Important Female"...isn't that an easy one for you? 

For my card I used the newly released image called "Lady with sewing machine" that you can find in the Jellypark Shop right HERE! It was so fun to play with, and you know how much I like anything with a sewing theme! I embossed two different colours of cardstock and then put them together to form the quilted background. I then stitched it all together onto the card base. I added a few buttons and the coloured image. Then I discovered I didn't have a sentiment stamp that said what I wanted, so I wrote it out myself. The image and sentiment were both cut out using my pinking shears! :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Jellypark - Lady with sewing machine;
Embossing Folders: Crafts Too - Small Flowers,
Sizzix - Square Lattice;
Buttons, Thread: My Stash.

Really love this, Nancy! The "quilt" is such a great idea--love the colors you chose! Love your coloring, stitching, and the pinked edges, too! And what a perfect sentiment! :^)
Hugs, Penny
Hope you have a great weekend!

Now, even though you've picked my least favourite craft, I LOVE your card. Love the colours, love the LO.
(I hate sewing so much, I can't bear to call it 'sewing', I call it 'cloth piercing'. It doesn't put my teeth on edge as much)! lol xxx

Sandy said...

Don't I just love these colors! Your card reminds me of when I used to make all of my own clothes.
Very happy and pretty card Nancy!

Nancy, love, love your card and love the colors, the sewing and that you cut it out so straight with the scissors. And, last but not least, you wrote the sentiment and it looks professional. Wow girl, I am impressed!!!!

Hope you are having fun on your special day Nancy! Happy BDAY! Love the purple and yellow on your amazing card - those colors always remind me of spring and easter ~*~Lisa

Marianne said...

Love your card Nancy! As a matter of fact I was searching for this exact type of stamp for a card that someone has asked me to make. I bought that stamp plus several others. Jellypark has some really sweet images!

Tracey said...

This is so pretty Nancy, I love the colours & the patchwork feel :o)

Cynthia said...

This is adorable, Nancy. Lovely coloring of the new JP image and fabulous quilted bg.

Embellishments said...

Pretty card and color combo Nacy. She looks so happy sewing, so not me... I'd be frustrated fighting with the sewing machine LOL...
Hugs, Steff
(talk soon)

Love the colours you have used Nancy and I could imagine anyone loving this card even if they can't sew! Maybe I would try if they had flowery sewing machines like this one ! The embossing folders are fabulous !
