altered pincushion rocker ~ a free stamp set ~ crafty secrets

Good Morning stampers!
I have an altered pin cushion rocker to show you today and a Crafty Secrets stamp set give-away, I'll give you the deets at the bottom of this post.
I picked up the rocker a couple of weeks ago, here's what it looked like before I altered it.
I see them from time to time and this one was little and cheap, so I got it just for the Sew Nice scraps.

I used the new Sew Nice Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps to cover the rocker. I took the seat cushion off and covered it with some vintage tatted linen I had in my stash. I used my glue gun and I've got the scares to prove it, ouch!



I made the flowers with my Martha Stewart Cosmo flower punch, I punched a bunch of Creative Scrap scraps, stapled them in the center and then I glued on the vintage buttons.

I used more vintage buttons for the pins and I added a couple of charms.

Supplies: Paper - Crafty Secrets Sew Nice Creative Scraps, green cardstock for the leaves. Acces. - pom-pom trim, vintage buttons, tatted linen, wooden spools of thread, printed twill, pins, charms. Tools - Mod Podge, Martha Stewart cosmo & leaf punches, glue gun.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm giving away this Crafty Secrets medium stamp set called Book Lovers plus a few other goodies to go with it! This is a super set for making book plates, bookmarks, cards and scrapbook pages.
{{{All you need to do is leave a comment and your contact info on this post, I'll announce the winner Monday, July 19 on my July Crafty Secrets challenge post}}}
Hey! Vicki has a give-away going on over at her blog too, check it out!

I hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
