Sew cute!

Don't you just love getting new stamping goodies in the mail?! I just got a boatload of new stuff from the Stampin Up mini catalog. Oh my gosh.....did you fall in love with all of the sewing themed items too?
Seriously....I bought all of it.
Let's just keep that between us though, okay?

Of course I had to ink something up right away! I inked up this image called "Pattern Pieces" with Versamark and clear embossed it on Melon Mambo cardstock. I used a couple of patterns from the new pack called "Sweet Stitches" and paired it up with some Garden Green cardstock.
I pierced around the edge of the bottom panel and used a white gel pen to create some faux stitching. I finally found a white pen that works PERFECTLY! I've tried so many and finally found the best one out there. It's the White Gelly Roll pen by Sakura - love it!! I went back and bought two more, just to have in my stash. I'm so sick of white pens clogging and not being reliable. Seriously...go get one of these.

Okay, okay...enough about the pen. I finished off this fun card with some real buttons and some buttons I cut with the new SU button Sizzix die. The sentiment is from an old SU set called "Bubble Queen", remember her?! My mother-in-law is an amazing seamstress, so this is going to be her Mother's Day card - if I can hold off giving to her until May! Well, I guess I'm out of exclamation points for today, so that's it for me :-)
Thanks for peeking.
