Splitcoast stampers

 AHOY!!Mateys!!!!
Yes, it is pirate themed, but not all of the cards have to have pirates.

I was cajoled into joining a virtual Stamp night over at Splitcoast Stampers by a new cyber friend, Crafty math chick!!! We are challenged to make five cards and only take 45 minutes for each one. There were different challenges of course, and we rec'd one every hour on the hour from 6pm to 10 pm. Happy to say that I got them all done. It was with some pretty wonderful help. All Fan Club Members got sneak peeks at two of the challenges, which means that I had advance notice of the first and last challenge and had that time to prepare and ready my challenge ideas. I'll take the next few days to share them with you

Challenge number one: "Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen' by fionna51 challenged us to use fabric on our cards
I ironed the fabric, sewed tucks in the eyelet to prepare for the challenge.
then I sewed the fabric to a piece of white cs  to have something to sew the fabric to and for stability.
then came the elements...I stamped onto the eyelet fabric the 'remember' and cut it out using my paper trimmer. added some black faux stitching with  a marker to outline a leave, part of a white flower, and the bottom left hand corner. lastly, I glued the white cs to the yellow orange cs.

Thanks for coming by!
