Simon Says Stamp Card Challenge - “We Love Stamps!”

Thought a nice way to spend part of Family Day (a holiday here in BC, Canada) would be to craft with… my FAMILY!   Nina and Judy both are working away on their own projects and it will be fun to see what each of us does today.

Simon Says Stamp Card Challenge - “We Love Stamps!” - the theme is to use a stamp (or more)  I’m afraid the ‘stamp’ part of my card is minimal but essential!  That little stamp says as much as my element I believe!

I had such fun with this card.  I just ‘freehanded; the dress, cutting the base of it out of a children’s “Paddington Bear” book which I’d found damaged ages ago at the thrift store.

I cut the skirt part a lot wider than the top part then crimpled it madly with my hands, then glued it down with plenty of room to froof out at the front.  I took some of that cloth paper stuff which my Father in Law gave me from his workshop, I believe it’s shop towels made of fibre.  It looks like paper but fabric all at the same time.

A little bit of embossed art paper for the top, some sheer ribbon at the waist, a lidda’ bit of thin brown ribbon, pearl, crochet cotton “straps” and….. bits of cast off jewellery to complete the magic of this pretty dress!

I hope this got you thinking!
