Crafty Secrets DT New Product Challenge

Good morning and welcome to another Crafty Secrets DT Challenge!! Our DT Coordinator, Vicki Chrisman gave us a challenge to create something using one or more of the New Product Releases from Crafty Secrets. I will have a link list to all of the Crafty Secrets Designers at the bottom of this post, so please be sure to visit each of them.Here is the card that I created for the challenge. The sewing theme is so popular right now! Crafty Secrets has two New Product Releases that work perfectly for this--the Material Girl Stamp Set and Sew Nice Creative Scraps. I used both of these New Product Release on my card.Here is a picture of the piece I used from the Sew Nice Creative Scraps before I started to work with it. The Sew Nice Creative Scraps is printed on both sides and you have so many beautiful images to choose from! To start on the image I inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink and then I created the embellishments for the card. The image of the little thread card is from the Material Girl Stamp set and I stamped it with Rich Cocoa ink onto ivory cardstock. Then I cut out the image and inked the edged with Vintage Photo ink. I added the thread to the card, it actually started out as ivory thread and then I added some R81 Rose Pink Copic Refill to a q-tip and applied the color to the thread. I ran the thread through one of the buttons and then I used Crafty Power Tape-81' and 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to adhere the thread card and buttons.Next I stamped the image of the dress form, this image is also in the Material Girl Stamp Set. I cut the image out and inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink and the I added some lace and trim from Webster's Pages. To give the dress form even more dimension on the card I added 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.On the top of the Sew Nice Creative Scraps image I stamped the sentiment Material Girl with flourishes using Gold Pigment ink and then I heat set it with gold embossing powder and a heat tool. The scissors diecut is from the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge. The scissors was cut from ivory cardstock, inked with Vintage Photo ink and then I added Crushed Shell Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.Here is another picture where you can see the Glimmer Mist on the scissors and then you can also see some sparkle on the lace top of the lady on the right. I used a Clear Star Gelly Roll Glitter Pen from Sakura to add the sparkle.On the right side I added some lace from Webster's Pages and some buttons and a beaded ribbon flower that is from the Vintage Bling from Crafty Secrets.Supplies~
