Wanna make the easiest card ever? Well I got a pack of Cotton Scraps Crafty Secrets from Hanna Stamps! They looked so cool on-line and I thought what the heck, I’m game. So tonight Jeff and I watched a movie, one of his favorites “Independance Day” OMG! to have a President like that eh? Actually risking his life for the world. I know its just a movie, but still. So as the movie ended, I thought..well crapola, I did not stamp at all today, I did laundry and cleaned, and even made meatloaf for supper, so I thought tonight was the night to try out my Cotton Scraps, and by cracky this was easy peasy.
Here is what the cotton looks like up close.
Neat eh? It looks almost canvas-y!
So I used my oval nestabilities to cut out the image (I was not sure if it would work, and it did), and then I peeled off the paper backing and glued it down to the scalloped basic black cardstock, for some reason I was thinking it was going to be sticky on the back and it was not…ummm…now that I READ the packaging I see that it does say to add adhesive after you peel off the paper. (I wonder if I could just leave it on the paper and make the card…hmmm….I have 5 more images, and 3 greeting images to practice on) I have a sewing machine on my wish list so I can sew Jeff’s ripped jeans…NOT! so I can sew on my cards! YES!!! I love seeing all the real sewing online. Jeanne Streiff is amazing at it. I would definitley need to practice, can you imagine getting a card all the way done and then messing it up by sewing it wrong….yikes!
Anyway after some quick paper cutting, some faux stitching and a little rub-on punched out, voila!
Cotton Scraps (Crafty Secrets)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black Textured, Riding Hood Red Textured, K& Company background paper

I set the card on the rest of the pack so you can kinda see it.

wow, that is so pretty! Ok so you asked someone to check on you and your "plank walking" so I'm going to do it again…did ya use your treadmill? (not to hang clothes on-that's what I used to do with my stairmaster until my husband made me give it away)I am going to start exercising on the 5th of Jan. when the kiddos go back to school. I was actually hoping someone would introduce me to an axe murderer so he could chase me around(cuz that's about the only way you're going to see this woman running!) LOL Have a terrific day and thanks for sharing your gorgeous creations with us!

I had NO idea, that the cotton would cut like this….WOW…LOVE it.
VERY VERY nice…
Beautiful card! What a great way to make a quick card!
Did you walk this morning?
Love the card. Thanks for all of your inspiration.

Very clever! I hadn't seen these before, so I guess that's one more thing to add to my Wish List, huh?!! LOL! TFS!
This is just beautiful! I love the colors and good luck with the sewing machine and sewing on cards. That's my goal for next year! You make this look way too easy!
All I need is to purchase ONE MORE THING that I won't use. So, YOU are to blame!! Actually, your card is to blame. I'll end up staring at that material and finally putting it back in its wrapper and saving it.. . . all because of YOU.
wow love this card!! Really pretty! and loving the whole idea of easy peesy 🙂 Happy New year and thanks for sharing. Blessings Renee
