The DT Piece That Wasn't


Good Saturday morning to you!  Thanks so much for stopping in to see what I made this week for the challenge at Our Creative Corner.  Unfortunately, you won't see this card on the challenge blog today because I messed up and didn't follow the challenge requirements.  Our lovely hostess, Vicki Burdick has given us a paper piecing challenge, which I did but the twist is no ribbon and only one (yes, that's right, only one embellishment).  Oops, I guess this card doesn't fit the challenge requirements.  I was so fixated on the paper piecing part that it totally slipped my mind about the other requirements so I went my merry way throwing embellishments on by the handful.  I had it all finished, photographed and loaded onto the team blog yesterday before I realized my mistake.  Oh well, maybe I can find other challenges to play in this week.

Here's the deets and I've linked up the products  below, many of which are from my Etsy boutique because I sell what I enjoy using for my crafting.

The paper is old, old Stampin' Up DP which I love and use very sparingly.  My paper piecing is on the Wendy Vecchi stamped heart from the Love to Make Art set, paper pieced using papers from the same DP set and trimmed out.  I die cut white corrugated cardboard with two Sizzix dies -  Hearts, Primitive #3 and Tags, Scalloped Combo #2 and edged them with Metallic Gold Acrylic Paint Dabber.  Then I added a little red tri-bud applique.  I cut another smaller tag and overlaid it, stamping it with a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Stuff to Say set.  The flower was cut with the Sizzix Flowers & Vines #2 die and the pleated ribbon by May Arts and sold in my Etsy shop.  The metal filigree, also from my shop, was coated with white embossing powder and heat embossed for a worn enamel look.  Oh, and the sweet red burlap thread is also from the Etsy shop.

I hope you will stop by Our Creative Corner.  The designers there are awesome and always have something wonderful to share to get your mojo revved up!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for any comments you leave.

This card is gorgeous! Sorry it didn't follow the rules. No ribbon? One embellie? You? Hmmm...not likely. I forgot to tell youthat I received my Valentine kit & I am in love again! Fabulous pieces created by you once again. Thanks!

Gorgeous, love the scroll die on the heart and the crimping on the hearts and tag!

Sue said...

It is a lovely card Linda, I can relate to how one can get carried away when creating, only one embellishment! not easy for us who love to add them on cards in oodles.

One is quite a daunting task; especially when I schedule a huge truck delivery for every card!
Your card is stunning and it was wonderful to see the one that wasn't.
hugs,
