not a monsta...but a bit triumphant

i think this one's sort of clever (she said modestly!) i've used a cuttlebug leaf die and a smaller leaf punch to make a poinsettia...which i then machine stitched onto my card.

(patterned paper: basic grey, autumn leaves, doodlebug + a bit of vintage sheet music; cardstock: dcwv; sentiment sticker: making memories; label die: nestabilities; leaf die: cuttlebug; leaf punch: mcgill; inks: colorbox; gems: mambi adhesives: tombow mono runner & sewing machine)

ok, so it's not rocket science, but finally i've come up with something i genuinely's mass-produce-able! this may well be the first time i've had BOTH of those categories overlap in the same card. certainly it's the first time in this xmas season!!! i now believe there's a chance that most of my card list may actually receive something BEFORE april!!! (wahey!!!)


  1. Hey there Miss Smarty Pants...I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!! Fabbie job on your gorgeous pink'alicious card!

  2. very clever indeed! thanks for the tip!!

  3. Ooh i love!!! I'd try white thread next time on the flower and border to have more of a contrast. I bet it would stand out even more. Or a light light pink thread would be uber cool too. LOVE this!! :) I'm going to have to find somewhere to set up my sewing machine so I can do cool things like you do.

  4. Lauren.. Your stitching is great... Do you use a standard sewing machine or do you have a small just for the cards ? I would think that the needle and machine don't like the paper very much.... Great colors in this card...


  5. Genius!! What a completely clever use of leaves! Love it!
