Josephine and Kiki

Here’s the last of the set of Shabby Chic cards I did for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine using the Vintage Chic Sarah Kay stamps from Stampavie.  Today’s stamp is Josephine and her pet cat Kiki

As before the papers are from a Prima pad, the Doo Hickey Doily flowers die is from Dies to Die For as is the MFT Die-namics doily die.  The tonal pearls and seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace is from The Ribbon Girl.


A super quick post from me today, I was up till the wee hours getting some more commissions done including a request for a wedding card.  OMW I get myself in such a state when I am asked to make a specific card …. what if the bride doesn’t like it??  Sweating bullets here in my panic lol.  Fortunately the image chosen is one of my faves so that’s half the battle.

Right, I am waffling and late for work again lol.

  37. Hiya Bev,

    How are you?

    All your cards are always so special, I love this colour combo!

    That seem binding is delicious,not tried seem binding yet as always unsure of what colour I would use most!

    I want every colour,I do believe that white is best and that you can colour it - is that right?

    What colour did you use to colour this seem binding?

    Hope you are well and trying to take it easy, I know you have a lot on just now (ALWAYS A VERY BUSY LADY)
