Haberdashery card

I love, love, LOVE me some Tim Holtz, how about you?! I'm here today with another Dream Team project!

I created this fun card using Tim Holtz's new Haberdashery Cling Mount set. The stamp set in itself was my inspiration. I love dress forms and how beautiful and vintage they look! I inked up the dress form, then I took the script stamp from the new Tim Holtz Reflections Cling Mount set and stamped it dry directly on the dress form that I inked up, then I stamped the dress form to kraft cardstock. You can see the script text on the dress form, it's so cool! It's called the "kissing" technique and Tim Holtz has a SUPER cool tutorial on how to do this on his Youtube Channel HERE. Uber cool! LOL!

Incorporated onto my card is some really awesome zipper trim by Maya Road. It used to be Lilac, then I colored it up with my Distress Stain in Walnut Stain to match the card. I stamped some label images from the Haberdashery stamp set and punched them out with my 1 3/8" circle punch (perfect fit!) and popped them up on some dimensionals. The large vintage button is from the Crate Paper Portrait Electic button pack. My sentiment is from a JustRite stamp set called Vintage Oval Labels and it's stamped onto a Maya Road mini tag. I tied a bow on the tag using my all time favorite May Art burlap string in brown.
I love how the pink Prima flower just pops on this card. It's so pretty, I wanted it to stand out. I layered it onto a rose bud from my black Frogfeathers trim. Love, love! I created a custom stick pin using black glass pearls and a Swavorski crystal finding from my stash. And do you spy an itty-bitty spool? Yup! That is a Maya Road mini spool... so tiny and CUTE! I wrapped some of my May Art burlap string around it like string on a spool... fun, fun!

For the background of my card, I used black cardstock. Then I inked up some of the stamps from the Haberdashery collection and stamped them onto the cardstock using white Memories ink. Then I sprayed it up with my Lindy Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz for some shimmer. Behind the dress form is some corrugated chipboard sprayed with Dark Chocolate Truffle Starburst stains.

All the products I have linked up here on my post are available at Stampers Dream.

Hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by to visit today!
