Celebrating Hobbies Challenge in the Moxie Fab World--National Sewing Month


Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far.  Hubby and I got some Christmas shopping done yesterday, and by the time we were done I was exhausted!  But it feels good to have gotten a good chunk of it done.

Over in the Moxie Fab World, Cath spent a week celebrating the release of the new Paper Crafts special issue, 365 Cards.  Although I can't find it locally just yet, I thought I'd play along with one of the challenges issued during last week's festivities.  For the Celebrating Hobbies Challenge, you can make a card to give to someone during National Sewing Month.  While my card isn't specifically for that occasion, it definitely has a sewing theme!


I wanted to use a fall-ish color palette, so I chose Papertrey Ink's Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, and Aqua Mist.  I used PTI's Quilter's Sampler to stamp a quilt on a square of Rustic Cream cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  I used the Linen & Canvas impression plate to give the panel the look of fabric, then stitched it to a Dark Chocolate mat.

A get well sentiment from the set was stamped on a double ended banner and embellished with a pair of scissors, also from Quilter's Sampler, that I cut out by hand.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream
Stamps:  Quilter's Sampler
Ink:  Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!), Copic markers
Tools:  Double ended banner die, Linen & Canvas impression plate
Accessories:  thread

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!  Thanks for stopping by!

I love the warm color palette here! All those panels together almost look like stained glass. Really beautiful.

I absolutely love it when you break out the sewing machine for your cards (like the one I got to see in person yesterday, oh my dear goodness, thank you!) It adds such a lovely texture. Your card is beautiful, and perfect for the challenge!
