Baby Lamb 09636
To make my Baby Lamb card, I put the oh so sweet image into my Misti, stamped it w/ Memento, colored it w/ Copics then over stamped it w/ Versafine. When I was coloring the little lamb w/ the cool grays, I thought she was looking a little too cool so I added a little warm gray to give her a little depth & warmth & added some earth tones to her face. A little Wink of Stella was added to her bow and also the dark pink trim on the heart.

The little piece of muslin was stamped w/ the button corner image using part of the Kaleidacolor ink & the rhubarb ink, attached to piece of heavy white paper, trimmed w/ pinking shears then attached to stitched square piece (this was a rectangle but after cutting it, I moved one end up to shorten it into a square & cut that end again).  The greeting flag was just a stitched rectangle & I took the corner of the rectangle die, turned 45 degrees to cut the notch for the flag tail.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Baby Lamb inside 09641

Let it Sew 08890
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs April release! Aren’t the Quilt images & dies fabulous? And the papers are beautiful!

For my quilty/sewy card, I’m featuring this cute, cute, cute little sewing machine & greeting (from A Time to Mend), Log Cabin Quilt die & some papers from the Americana Quilt & Old Glory collections. Since the greeting is 1 line repeated 3 times, I had the idea to add 3 sewing machines in 3 colors but to get the best impression on this solid image, I stamped it w/ the Memento inks onto a semi-glossy photo type paper. It helped tremendously to have it in my Misti so I could stamp it more than once to get full coverage. For the print version, I inked just the outline of it & stamped it onto the paper then stamped it again on the photo paper & paper pieced it. I will mention, after I fussy cut that tiny outline, I realized it would have been much easier to just fussy cut the inside & attach it over the the other image. Oh & learn!

I die cut the Log Cabin Quilt 4 times..1 white, 1 blue & 2 different prints, then arranged them inside the solid blue version outline. A large square was die cut out of the white front & placed on top of the quilt w/ all the fussy cut sewing machines on top. I used the Misti again to stamp the greeting 1 line at a time using the blue & red Versafine inks. Some buttons (from the Matting Circle dies) were cut, stacked & attached.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Joy to You cu 07827
The Ways to Use It Challenge (WT560) has us putting a Christmas sock on our project. So I have a Christmas stocking w/ a button & bow topper.
Joy to You07825
I fussy cut a stocking shape & stamped it w/ one band of a woven plaid image then used a red Micron pen to add the borders on each band. A polka dot stamp & white pigment ink were used on the red topper, heel & toe. The woodgrain background was stamped onto a lt kraft using Memento desert sand. I added the ribbon & button and a couple of Candi dots to balance out the empty corner & I used a stitched rectangle on the white card front. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, head on over and check out the DRS Thursday Challenge…this week, Tags! Make a tag or have one on your project. DRS images are not required & there’s a nice prize up for grabs.
