Day Dreamer













I am SO glad you all are enjoying my sewing tutorials with the Janome sew mini. I have more installments coming soon. :)

This card uses the newly released set, Day Dreamer from MFT by BC Dzyns. I loooooooove this set! It was so fun to color! Coming from someone that used to be mortified of coloring and chose solid stamps when at all possible... that is saying something. :) LOL

I first chose some patterned paper by Basic Grey and colored my girl to match. She is stamped on Gina K white (120 lb) and colored with Copics.

See that cool flower in the left corner? It is a NEW thing from MFT. It is a meshy, slightly shimmery flower that is 2 ply, but is sealed. Make sense? Kinda puffed up in the center. I bought some recently (YES, I PAID for them) and I REALLY like them. They are cool, unique and super affordable. They sell for $5.25 and the package comes with 60 pieces including shimmery brads and assorted flowers. Want some? Click HERE to check them out.


I like that with this card fold, the inside of the card can be dressed up too and it's not completely hidden. :)


Stamps: Day Dreamer

Ink: Memento black
Paper: pink, black, white, basic grey
Accessories: MFT flowers, silver brads, copic markers, Janome sew mini, SU ribbon, word window punch, black dimensional boosters, red line tape, card die cut

  13. LOVE this, Jody! That's such a neat fold! (And, btw, I'll have you know I did NOT backstitch on a card today and I did NOT cut off a thread and leave a little hangy thing...I PULLED the top thread through to the back! You would be proud of me! (insert beaming smiley--lol)

  19. Hi Jody! Your coloring on this card is meticulous - your flesh tones are just wonderful!!! I DO remember talking with you on the phone and hearing you say you don't like to color, oh, and how well I related!!! Now, if I could ever get to this level I'd be a happy camper!!!! And I just scanned all of your sewing tutorials!!! Very nicely done!!! I've never seen the Janome Mini IRL. I use a full sized machine, but it sure does look like a nice little machine!!!! Your tutorial is so well done, clearly stated -- I've had a wonderful visit!!! Thanks -- nice talking to you!!!
