I realized this weekend while cleaning my office that I haven’t even stamped with all of the sets from the Occasions Mini catalogue yet. Like this stamp set, Sew Suite. Wouldn’t this make a great gift for the quilter in your life, even if that’s you?!
And of course, Stampin’ Up! has great coordinating accessories for this set including a Big Shot button embosslit, fabric buttons, rub ons, designer buttons and lots more. See the complete line of products on pages 32 – 39 of the Occasions Mini catalogue.
For this card, I used the Sweet Stitches designer series paper. The colours in this paper are Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight.
Instead of using ribbon as I normally would, I stamped the tape measure image onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and added a Brushed Silver end with an Early Espresso brad. I also added a knot of Early Espresso narrow taffeta ribbon to the dress form (can you keep a secret… my image was not centered on the cardstock and since I don’t want to do it again the ribbon covered most of the problem. Don’t look too closely!)
