Sew Lovely (by Deborah)

Hello everyone today sees the first of three posts this month by our Guest Design member Deborah Wainwright. Deborah has created a beautiful tag for your inspiration. 

Deborah writes:

Morning everyone Debs here with you again with the start of three posts over the next few weeks using the lovely stamps brought to us by Lesley and David.

For this medium sized tag I have used a variety of stamps off some of my favourite sets called Haberdashery, Floral Mannequins and The Sewing Room.

Here's how I created it:

I added Distress Ink around the edges of a piece of decorated chipboard and added this to my tag. I stamped and cut out my mannequin, flowers, buttons and cotton reel, all of which I painted with watercolours. I then aged them with Distress Ink and adhered them to the tag. To finish, I added some embroidery cotton to the cotton reel and added some highlights to the buttons, added some tiny flowers, and to add some retro style I added a beaded hat pin. I typed my sentiment and added it to a small piece of mountboard. Lastly a little trinket was added to the same cotton and tied in a bow.

You can make so many variations with these stamps so why not pop over to my blog to see more samples I made for a recent show on HOCHANDA

Take care for now and I'll see you soon

Hugs Debs xxx


  1. Beautifully done Deborah and love all the fussy cut elements including those added wings, and the embroidery thread around the reel and on the top of the tag with the pretty hat pin and added trinket. These haberdashery stamps are gorgeous and I adore them too. x
