Hope you're having a good week. It's super raw and cold here today, so we've been snuggled up inside staying warm and that means stamping too! Hoping for some sunshine tomorrow though, getting tired of these dreary cold days.
I wanted to thank all the lovely ladies who have left comments lately about my sewing on cards. I have to admit though, it's all the machine! lol Really, if it weren't for wanting to have a pretty detail on a card, I would never even think twice about a sewing machine. I certainly don't sew and am horrible at it. I really believe if you have a sewing machine and want stitching on your card, drag it out and put it to work!
I made a card today that doesn't have any sewing and I'm thinking that it doesn't look as finished as my other cards. I guess I was being a bit lazy today and didn't feel like stitching, but looking at it now, I wish I had done some. I still like the card, but think the stitching really finishes them off nicely.
Whimsy Stamps with the sentiment from Balloon Sentiments and used the Balloon Die to cut the balloon shape. The image was colored with copics and then cut out and adhered to an embossed circle. The papers are MME Fine and Dandy with glitter added to the edges. I've embellished simply with sticky gems and a piece of twine on the balloon.
