Pin-Up Girls Series ~ Babe

I am having so much fun using miscellaneous materials and embellishments to try and make each card unique in this series.  To create each card, I first drew my color and theme inspiration from each pin.  I then matched up a pin-up flash card.  Next, I gathered like materials for the card and finally, started putting things together.  I almost never use a sketch.  I just randomly place my selected materials on my card (scrapbook page, project, etc) and move them around until they look good to me.

For this card, I used the Imagine cartridge Word of Mouth for my sun cut. I selected the layers function and pop dotted each. I then sewed some of the edges and used liquid pearls in baby blue for added interest.

The bow is made from white seam binding, Stampin' Up! pool seam binding and some linen thread.  I also used a hat pin from a recent swap I participated in.  

Babe: She is still in training.


  1. I really love how you are putting these together. The design and the elements to them. TFS

  2. I really like this one! the colors! I don't have that imagine cart but I'm considering it again... I want those cards and the flair or pins or whatever they are!

  3. I love how fulled thoses colors together on the inside too.


Thank you for leaving some love! I hope to see you back!
