Now, here’s what I have to share with you today!

PopUpRocker clsup

This is Sew Special, a cozy quilt and a rocker…ahhh, so comforting! It’s colored with Copics And there is a matching Rocking Chair Die too! How cool is that!

I thought it would be fun to make a standing pop-up card with this set.

PopUpRocker

The Scripture is also from this set, I sponged Faded Jeans Distress ink while it was still in the Spellbinders die. Now, what about that fence…awesome, right?! It’s new too! Fence Border Die is larger than Secret telling smileMartha’s…I love it! Winking smile

PopUpRocker side

It all tucks away flat for mailing! It’s from Creative Cuts and More.

This next one looks a lot more involved than it actually is… all because of the awesome dies again! Yup, MORE!! Pincushion Die, Spool & Tape Die, and of course the Tag Die.

Quilter

From the series, Full of Grace, is Quilter which I stamped on the Spool Tag Set. It’s colored with Copics and sponged with Bundled Sage Distress ink.

Quilter tag

I sewed around the tag, even the little hole with my sewing machine. The DP for my “quilt blocks” is Prima Madeline.

Quilter pincushion

I used Sakura Metallic Silver and White gel pens on the pins. The green lace edging is some older Prima, the pink and white is tatting that I took off an old pillowcase. It was either my mother or aunt that made it. The twill bow was done on the Bow Easy, then I stuck quilting pins into it!

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Connie’s blog,
where I know you’ll be sew inspired!

Thanks for stopping!!

As usual your work is beautiful. I like the way the pin cushion is curved instead of being put on a pop adhesive evenly. Thanks

i love the idea with the fence and the lovely image with the rocking-chair with the beautifully coloured quilt!

this is my personal favourite, although the other creation with the wonderful background is so adorable, too!
