You are Sew Special with Sewing Faerie Marci

Here is my latest creation - it is a stair card using the latest stamps and dies from the Club La-La Land Crafts.

This month we received stamps of Sewing Faerie Marci, a thimble and cotton reel and then dies of a swatch of fabric, buttons and some scissors.
I stamped Sewing Faerie Marci, the thimble and cotton reel on to X-Press It paper using Memento ink. Then I coloured them in with the following Copics:

  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, lipstick Spica
  • hair -  E18, E15, YR23, Y21
  • wings - B000, clear Spica
  • skirt/shirt/headband/shoes - V12, V15, V17
  • flower on headband - RV13, RV17, clear Spica
  • blanket - Y11, Y15, Y17, YG13, YG17
  • thread - YG17
  • needle - Y28, clear Spica
  • background - V000
  • thimble - C1, C3, C5
  • cotton reel - E31, E33, E35, YG13, YG17

Using the swatch of fabric die, I die cut from core Couture Glitter card stock (core'dinations), also for the scissors. I also die cut a square using a square die from KaiserCraft with the glitter card stock. 
For the buttons, I used a paper from a freebie paper stack called Sweet wishes (Australian papercraft essentials). I knotted twine and embroidery floss in the holes of the buttons.

The sentiment was stamped on to X-Press It paper and then highlighted using milled lavender Distress Ink (Tim Holtz).

The card base is AC Card stock, folded into a stair card according to Beate Johns instructions from Split Coast Stampers.
The scissors are put together with a gold brad from my stash.
Everything is adhered to the card using double-sided tape (X-press It) and adhesive foam squares (paper craft).
