Today on Sweet Stamps blog our new challenge is starting.
The theme is = STITCHING (real or faux)
I never thought I would be one to use my machine on craft projects but I came to terms with this a while ago and now I love stitching on my paper crafts!
For this card what I did was to stamp the FORGET ME NOT stamp on an off-white piece of paper.
Then I took that and followed the outline with a satin stitch on my machine.
Because the satin stitch is such a close-knit stitch, it served at piercing the entire heart out of the paper after I was done stitching.
The result was that I was left with the stitched outline of the heart, only.
I then re-stamped the image and attached the stitched frame and built around the frame with flowers.
Then I made the little tag with the HI stamp.
I can’t tell you how gorgeous this card turned out…the pictures don’t do it justice.
The FORGET ME NOT stamp was the perfect stamp for this method.
If you have ever thought about trying your hand at stitching, this is the perfect time to challenge yourself,
