When I saw the Crafting With You Bundle in the new catalog, I thought it was the most versatile “share your love of crafting” product that Stampin’ Up! has featured. The Crafting With You Dies are adoreble. There’s a lot of them, including a paper trimmer, die cutting machine, embroidery hoop, and sewing machine, to name a few.

Today, I’m sharing a sewing themed card that I created foer my cousin who is an avid sewer. Putting this card together brought back a lot of loving memories for me.

My Grandmother taught me to sew. I was in awe of her very large factory machine. I enjoyed spending time cutting patterns for her. Eventually, I sat at that machine and learned her craft. (I have always loved to cut paper!!) Over the years, I made holiday dresses for my daughter and lots of Halloween costumes for my son and daughter. Such wonderful memories!

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • I cut a Basic White card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  • The flower patterned Delightfully Eclectic DSP card front layer is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • The striped patterned Designer Series Paper layer is 1 1/2″ x 5″.
  • I die cut the Basic White focal pint layer with one of the dies from the Radiating Stitches Dies. They seem to be a new “go to” for me.
  • The sewing machine is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink and I stamped the sentiment with Fresh Freesia ink.
  • The basket, sewing thread, and ruler are die cuts using the Crafting With You dies.
  • I stamped the inside with a sentiment from the Stamp Set and added a thread bobbin die cut embellishment.
  • Here’s an assembly tip: After all my thread bobbin die cuts were completed, I added a thin line of liquid glue to the top back of the basket. This made it easier to assemble the thread bobbins in the basket. I arranged them from the back.

So, find some pretty and fun patterned paper, stamp a sewing machne, add some die cut thread bobbins, and create somethng to send to a favorite crafter!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
