C4C5 Thanks



Good Monday Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made for the Crazy 4 Challenges #5 Sew Happy. Let's see some Machine, hand or faux stitching somewhere on your card or creation!

I am still playing with retired colors and designer paper. This time, kiwi kiss and Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper. Kiwi is another of my faves from last year.

I used kiwi and basic black. The base is kiwi and then each layer of DS paper is mated with basic black. The stamps I used are "Friends 24-7" and "Thank You Kindly".
I stamped the image with kiwi kiss ink and then used black stazon to stamp the "Thanks".

I added some piercing and used my white gel pen to add the "stitching" around the kiwi DS paper layer.

While making this one I cut out enough of the same paper to make another.





This one was made with the same layout too. I used the "Flowers in Silhouette" single stamp and the sentiment is another one from the "Thank You Kindly" set. No faux stitching or ribbon on this one. I used my Fleur de lis edge punch and the pieces that are punched out to make the design down the edge and middle of the side strip.

Well,that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
