Wish Big

This is a card by Susan Field who designed this card for a organized swap at the recent annual Stampin' UP! convention held in Salt Lake City, UT.  She was gracious enough to allow me to take the measurements so that I could copy it for my July stamp camp.  I love the colors in the Bohemian Designer Paper Series and the cutie patootie Octopus will surely make someones day.

Don’t Cry Over Spilled Coffee

We made this card a while back at my October stamp camp.  I actually sewed the paper with my mom's Singer Golden Touch n Sew sewing machine.  It must be 40 years old at least.  Its performance and my rusty skills were match perfectly to create the shabby chic effect I was going for.  We used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to make it look like someone had spilled their coffee on the card.  That was a hoot. Sponging added more shabbiness.  I loved how it turned out for a masculine looking card.  The crinkled twine used was defrayed burlap ribbon.
