TCM: Beautiful Rose

Sunday, June 16, 2013

It's that time again, folks, time for another amazing release from The Craft's Meow!  Karen Baker and Nina Brackett have cooked up four, beautiful, new sets, beginning with Beautiful Rose, which has inspired today's creation.
I started this card by piecing the trio of vertical, patterned, paper strips together, side by side; ink distressing their edges; framing them with a piece of Barely Banana cardstock; machine stitching, with brown-threaded, straight and zig-zag stitches, around their combined edges and between their connections; and stamping the "100% Loved" seal, in Chocolate Chip ink, in its bottom right corner.
I then wrapped a length of twill tape, vertically, around the prepped piece, between the connection of the first two patterned papers and tied it in a bow, before adhering the entire thing, with foam tape, to the Oatmeal, cardstock, card face.
The focal point was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on Oatmeal cardstock, as well as on a trio of color-coordinating, patterned papers, the latter of which were promptly pieced onto the main, cardstock image, which was then hand cut out; ink distressed; stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "Dear Friend" sentiment and, in Chocolate Chip ink, with a portion of the "100% Love" seal; adhered, just below the twill tape bow and lined up with the previously stamped seal, with foam tape; and dressed up with a simple, yellow button, laced with hemp twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to leave some love, on the TCM Store Blog, by 8 pm PST tonight, for your chance to win today's stamp set.  And I hope to see you all back here tomorrow for more from TCM.  Have a wonderful start to your work weeks!  Hugs!
