Dressmaking/Corsets at Fashionable Stamping

For the next two weeks at Fashionable Stamping Challenges we would like to see your creations which fit the theme of Dressmaking, Corsets and or Acessories. I'm really looking forward to visiting you all, I was unable to visit last week and leave comments due to computer problems, but I so don't want to miss your entries over the next two weeks. I actually don't have any dressmaking stamps, apart from one sad lonely sewing machine, so I concentrated on the corset theme. the front of the card I used a TH pink sheet from the Shabby stash , coloured it more with Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick Distress inks. I stamped the lady twice, once on plain card so I could colour her face, hair and the background of the chair. the 2nd stamping was onto a piece of small print pretty red paper to give her an interesting dress, which was then decoupaged onto the first stamped image.  I added a small piece of gold chain for a necklace. I made the two larger red flowers with the spiral technique. The computer image of A lady's BEST kept secret is.... meant to entice you to open the card... inside which are several variations of her corsetry. -her Underwear.
Stamps used La Blanche for the lady - another £1 bargain
The Corset is from Bavura stamps from E - Bay.
Thanks for looking at  my blog and this card, I hope it inspires you, in any small way.


  1. Love the humor you added to your card, Caz! Beautifully done. Best, Yvonne

  6. Loving your beautiful lady, super fun words as well.

  7. Fabulous - I love this and this lady looks so in command. I remember corset stamps were popular a few years back, perhaps this challenge will cause a rennaisance.


  8. This is a beautiful card, but it is fun too, she looks rather prim doesn't she, but her underwear is rather saucy. XX

  9. Great idea with the corsets! and a great stamp - what a bargain.

  10. Such a fantastic take on this theme, the underwears are great.
