Gina K's Springtime Silhouettes


Today our Gina K design team is sharing cards with the final set of this release, the StampTV kit, Springtime Silhouettes.  The double-sized stamp set in the kit comes with Pure Luxury card stock, ribbon, brads and exclusive patterned paper that coordinate with each other...that makes creating easy!

For today's card, instead of using the kit papers, I used some scraps of designer paper left over from a long-ago project...I could not wait to ink up this dress form, and wanted to create a vintage card with lots of sewing paraphernalia on it.  I really love the way it turned out!  There are scraps of ric rac,  lace, tape-measure ribbon, satin and tulle along with some snaps, pearls, a safety pin and a few pearl hat pins tucked into a store-bought rolled ribbon flower.  The paper is torn and inked and distressed, so it really does look like something out of grandma's trunk in the attic.

If my sewing machine would behave, I certainly would have included some stitching on this card, but something is wrong with the bobbin tension so I didn't dare.  Still haven't made it in to the shop with it, but it needs to go right away!

Notes:
