Lulu Ketto Card

I'm slowly working through my pile of un-inked stamps. I found a few more, {sigh}, when I was cleaning up my room, but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel! Other goals I've added to my list is to use up more of the stuff I already have and spend 1/2 of what I spent last year on crafting.

I rarely color images prior to picking paper, but this little one was colored months ago! I finally worked it all out and I love the orange and green together! I used Get Sketchy #21 for this too.

Paper: Basic Grey Sugar Rush
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Amuse
CTMH Brads, Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Buttons, Copics, and Crystal Stickles


Everyone have a fabulous Tuesday! Excited for Idol and Biggest Loser!

  7. Wow! This is fabulous, Sparkle! I adore your ability to pull together the perfect colors. And your stitching is perfect, too! Love it!

    Good for you for your goal on using what you have! The pull of the paper is strong, because even after I pulled out all that paper in my room, I was STILL drawn to the papers when I was wandering Joann's last night! (I didn't buy any, but I sure ogled it! LOL) I know you can do it! And with panache!

  30. Gorgeous card, any tips you have for using the sewing machine? would be appreciated or any tutorials on the internet you found useful? i did this on a couple of cards and then had a lot of hassle on the last one. Thread kept breaking.

  31. Sweet Lulu makes me happy just admiring her in her fun colors!

    I hear you about the uninked stamps; I have a stack of Magnolias placed in the middle of my crafting area in hopes of guilting me into using them. So far, I've lowered the pile a bit!
