CCEE1924 - National Sewing Machine Day

Lois here, continuing her month as hostess for the CCEE Stampers.  Today is National Sewing Machine Day, and she  asked the team to make a card with some stitching on it -- either actual stitching, faux stitching or stitch-edged dies.

So I have had this stamp in my collection for quite sometime as I found it on sale and have a mom who sews. I decided to do a distress oxide ink smash background, stamp the image in versafine black, and then I stamped some faux stitches to the top and bottom. Then I added the felt strip that had stitching on the edges and a birthday tag.

I will be gone the week that this challenge goes live, and serving a week at the UMCOR depot at Sager Brown in Baldwin, La. Hope you check out the CCEE blog that can be found HERE and check out the cards made by the team.


  1. My sister still has my mom's old Singer! How absolutely delightful and perfect for this challenge!

  2. The perfect stitched felt ribbon embellishment with this sensational sewing machine image. It does look exactly like Mother's. With her new one broken, she is back to using it!

  3. Love that bg and image. Adding the stitched felt was genius!!!

  4. I learned to sew on a sewing machine like this one. I love your card with its collage look.
