Sew Kind of You

Hello and Welcome to another "Bunny is obsessed with this pale pink cardstock and monochromatic cardmaking..." post.

I am, I admit I love this pale pink 110 lb cardstock that Jillian picked up at Michaels!
It is so pretty, and the photos do not do it justice!

Key point:  I used the SAME pale pink cardstock for all die cuts. Some were embossed with the Brutus Monroe Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder. This is like a translucent embossing powder and gives such a beautiful effect on the pale pink cardstock.
I first started with the Basic Rectangle Die Set and the Stitch Dot Rectangle largest dies. I stamped the Meandering Stitches Background Builder Cling Stamp using Wow Embossing Ink then embossed with the  Brutus Monroe Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder it is just gorgeous and on this pink, it seems to match it perfectly!

I cut the Embroidery Hoop from the Hoop It Up Set. Jillian came out with it back in 2014, then relaunched it in July of 2022 due to customer requests. I embossed more card stock then cut the stork scissors, Hoop screw, and the Sew word die from Antique Sewing Machine Die Set, out of it. Then embossed the Hoop with the same embossing powder: Brutus Monroe Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder.
Stamped using the Fresh Florals Arch Stamp on the inside of the hoop using Wow Embossing Ink and the SAME Brutus Monroe Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder.
I used the banner sentiment from the Fresh Florals Swag Die Set, it seemed to fit the sentiment "kind of you" perfectly.
I love how Jillian added a banner sentiment strip to three of the Fresh Florals die sets, so they can be used depending on how long you want. Each is 1/4" different in length! So if you own all three sets, you have a set of 3 sentiment banners to use with other stamps too!
I had a vision for this card, and it actually came out BETTER than my vision...normally that is not the case!
I just wish the photos did it justice!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a Blessed weekend.
