Today's set, I'm in Stitches, is a fun one, whether you sew or not.  My CAS card today features the vintage electric sewing machine.  I actually learned to sew on a machine that looked like this, except that it was a treadle machine.  (That will tell you how old I am!!!)  I stamped the image and embossed it with Detail Black embossing powder and trimmed it with a gold pen.  Then I stamped the sentiment and added the gold line stickers.  Voila -- I was done!


I decided to make a quilt card for my second card today, using papers from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper pack.  I think we probably all had that tomato and strawberry accessory for our sewing needs.  After I constructed the "quilt," I embossed it with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The sentiment and tomato are popped up on pop dots.


Thanks again for stopping by my blog to see what I came up with using today's stamp set.  Be sure to check out the rest of the team.  Comment on their blogs to increase your chances of winning a free stamp set.

These are really fun! I love the quilted look to your second card and the CAS sewing machine card. I would swear that my grandmother's sewing machine looks exactly like that one!

Love your CAS card, Lois. The quilted one is awesome, too. It is just perfect for this set. Yes, that tomato was the rage. I still have one from years ago that someone made me. Yours looks prettier than mine, though..with the dp covering it.

Sew nice. Wish I knew how to sew. My mother was a wonderful seamstress. I took Home Ec sewing in high school.
Had jury duty summons today. 25 people were selected. I was left in remaining 28 group and after waiting for some time we were told we were not needed & could leave.
