gingham style

possibly my all-time favorite challenge title at shopping our stash, this week; and not just because i still secretly sort of love psy's gangnam style video, lol. for "gingham style" you don't necessarily have to use gingham as such, but we're definitely hoping to see checks, plaids, or a strong theme of squares in your project. as it happens, i did use actual gingham, but only because this particular yellow from crate paper is one of my all-time favorite patterns and it goes so well with so many other designs.

patterned paper: crate, prima, my mind's eye, fancy pants; sentiment sticker and brad: amy tangerine/american crafts; florals: prima + a very old sunflower with a fuzzy center from bouquet i got for .10c at a garage sale :) glossy white cardstock: paper accents; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i used leslie's gorgeous crooked stamper sketch challenge #6 for my layout, though i have flipped it both horizontally and vertically, so i hope you can see the sketch in my card?

there are lots more SOS design team projects just loaded with "gingham style"... why not hop over and feast your eyes upon them right now? (you can thank me later, darlings!)


  1. Loooove the cluster of flowers, and I'm most impressed you (a) bought baubles at a yard sale, and (b) you remember that you did so, and (c) you remember what you paid for it. I can't remember the last time I actually bought anything at a yard sale!

    Super gingham paper, straight stitching, and YOU PLAYED MY CHALLENGE! YAY! xo

  2. Gingham...love it and your card is BEAUTIFUL.

  3. Sooooooo pretty - I love that yellow gingham patterned paper...and I admit I watched Psy's video at least once while I was making my card LMBO

  4. Very pretty! Great focal grouping! Nice work!

  5. Great take on the sketch, I tried but wasn't working. Fabulous use of the gingham paper and a beautiful card.

  6. Fantastic colors and stitching and I love the flower details. Very pretty card!

  7. GORGEOUS! Love that collagey cluster in the patterned paper, your perfect embellies and swoon, the stitched layers!

  8. I love all the graphic eye candy here with different shapes and the stitching is so much fun too! Beautiful layering and design here, and of course the gingham is outstanding! NJ!
