Magical Wishes

This is one of my cute little fairy stamps from Lili of the Valley Ltd, and I thought she would be so cute paired with some of this Green at Heart paper from Basic Grey. You have to take note of a couple of things on this card. First, the little charm that I made with Shrink Plastic. I'm going to be experimenting with some of my metallic inks to see if they will shrink also. It is so fun to see what you have stamped shrink before your eyes. Second, I sewed with the machine again and I know you sewers out there will get a kick out of knowing that there is a right and wrong way to put in the bobbin. Can we all say,"learning curve". :-)
3 Challenges:
Supplies: White Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Basic Grey-Green at Heart, Stampin Up-Whisper White, Stamps: Lili of the Valley-On Tiptoe, Autumn Leaves Flourishes by: Rhonna Farrer, Stampin Up-Vintage Labels, Ink: Momento-Tuxedo Black, Stampin Up-Kiwi Kiss, Copic Markers, Bic Mark It pens, Darcie Shrink Plastic, silver jewelry cord, sewing machine, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Wow, you really did a wonderful job---sewing and a plastic charm---love them both! Yes, sewing can be a challenge sometimes---having the bobbin in the RIGHT way is quite helpful! :D Now you know, so you can do it lots & lots on future cards!
