TE Release Day! Time to Dig In!!

So today is the day – all the fabulous sets (full and petites), dies and impression plate are available for purchase!  I hope you have had fun hopping around all the designer’s blogs for all the eye candy & fabulous ideas using the offerings!

sewing mends the soul
For my project today, I have a card to share with you using one of the Crafty Petites sets, Sew Happy illustrated by Nancy McKinney!  I used almost all the same supplies as I did yesterday for my mini sewing kit: Crate Paper Restoration pattern paper, Choice Buttercream and grey cardstock.  I die cut a large scallop border from the pattern paper then layered some Ivory crochet trim and red ric rac over that.  Then added a Jenni Bowlin vintage cream button with ivory thread to make my card vintage, a style I love and aspire to do well!  I used 3 of the small images and they are all punched out with a 1” square punch so they are perfect for inchies!!  Since I used the sentiment ‘sewing mends the soul’, I decided to sew with some ivory thread and sewed crooked (a little hard to do since it's more natural to sew straight!)  Makes me realize I want to branch out and sew more than just on my cards *wink*  I colored the images with copic markers and added some silver half back pearls to the straight pins on the pin cushion. 
So now be sure to hop around the rest of the Baker’s Dozen designer’s blogs to be inspired and then have fun shopping!  Be sure to check out the Fresh Out of the Oven catergory where you will see all the new stuff added in one area so you don't miss anything!

Once I get this cute dino set, it's great to see what good use I could make of it. I too have photos of a dinosaur park we visited with our children. They are both riding a stegosaurus and interacting with all the dinos. I especially like how you made the dino stamped image subtly blend with the border.
