Pretty Woman

Good morning from Wisconsin.  Micki and I arrived here yesterday to bring her mother home.  On Sunday we will be leaving for Chicago to attend CHA, and in case you don't know what CHA is, it stands for Craft and Hobby Association and on Monday 3 days of fun begin. It is the summer trade show and the showing of all the new products. Hope my feet hold up....I understand it is HUGE and overwhelming for the novice.... my posting.  Micki took the picture...didn't she do a great job!  Don't tell her but I think I will have her take pictures of all my cards in the future.  And btw, when she gets her shop opened, she will be doing that photography for anyone! 
This card will be submitted on the Art Impressions blog next Wednesday for the next challenge...stitching. The first layer of paper was stitched to the base card.  I used Spellbinders label One behind the Lady.  The image(Art Impressions "Lady" P-2147 was colored with Copics (E000, E02, R02, E25, E19, BG0000, BG02, BG04).  The ribbon is Hug Snug seem binding from Zipperstop and colored with a spritz combo of distress ink refill and pearl ex.  Tim Holtz used this as ribbon and colored it with distress ink and it works great.  It is also CHEAP! 100 yards on a spool and I think it costs about $12.  I called them to order it and they were very friendly and very quick on delivery.  I also used a Martha Steward punch.  Sorry but all those exact items I used are at home and I am not.  Leave a comment if you would like more details on how I did this card.  Hope you like it and everyone have a great day!

  1. What a great card, Mary.Love the layers and the stitching. I am going to have to try that seam binding, thanks for the link. Have fun at CHA.Wear comfy shoes. I wish I were going to be there this year.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I hope to use the comments to encourage me to learn and improve the posts here. I would especially like comments that would show me the type of posts you would like to see such as Copics, watercolor or other techniques or organization ideas.
