Good morning all! Are you enjoying the new stamps? Let me tell you -I am LOVE-LOVE-LOVING them. So, follow me into The Sewing Room and let's have fun with the Floral Mannequins. It's been more than 4 decades since I had this much fun playing dress-up!
My first card highlights the lovely dress-form from The Sewing Room A5 sheet and was inspired by a wedding dress. I heat embossed the dress-form in black onto heavy weight kraft card. Then I ruffled up some sheer white ribbon and cream lace to "build" the under-skirt of a wedding dress in progress. I can only imagine the hustle and bustle in a real sewing room! For a touch of bridal glamour, I added tiny bling to form a necklace. The greeting is from Loving Sentiments A5 sheet.
More lace on my second card, only this time I'm using stamps from the Floral Mannequins A5 sheet. The background was created by stamping the lace fragment directly onto a piece of patterned paper followed by a little colouring with Polychromos. The ruffled lace is also from the Floral Mannequins A5 sheet, but this time I heat embossed it in white onto vellum and fussy cut it. I coloured the mannequin with alcohol markers, fussy cut and mounted it with some foam tape. The greeting is from the Birthday Words A5 sheet.
