Papertake Weekly - A stitch in time

Hey everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week Dawny's challenge is "A Stitch in Time"! And the best part is we're sponsored by the lovely ladies Andrea and Mary from The Ribbon Girl!  So use any type of stitching on your project, real or fake. I was a little pushed for time this weekend, so I put together a tag for you today. It may have been quick and easy, but I still love how it turned out.


I used the Cricut Expression and the Don Juan cartridge for the tag shape (isn't it cool?).  Then I used that cute little crab critter stamp from Paper Smooches and colored it up with Copic markers, then fussy cut it out. Then came the fun part.... I popped it onto an Action Wobble. How can you use these and get anything done??!! I just wanted to keep wobbling the crab! LOL! Anyway, I inked the background with Distress inks and then ripped a piece of cardstock and inked the edges with chalk ink. Then popped the little wobble crab on top. Oh, that was after stamping the sentiment onto the background too.  Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all my talented teamies fabulous creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue (and maybe even a wobble) and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
