Hi everyone! It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage. There are two parts to the challenge and you may choose either or both to play along with. We have a fun new sketch and this week's theme is "A Time To Learn". A few of my lovely followers have commented that they'd love to learn how to stitch on their cards so I thought I'd share links to the tutorials I used when I learned how to stitch.
After listening to me talk about how much I love the look of stitching on cards my wonderful husband surprised me with a Janome Sew-Mini. I watched these videos on Stamp TV by Gina K. several times to learn how to stitch and it ended up being so much easier than I thought. I wasn't a natural at it and actually had to watch the videos several times but am so glad I tried. Now I stitch on almost every card I make. So if I can do it, so can you!
"A TIME TO LEARN" HOW TO STITCH
Using this sketch for inspiration I created today's card highlighting the Glorious Greenhouse digital stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.
My card base is Always Artichoke layered with PTI White then patterned paper stitched around the edges. Next I wrapped pretty brown lace and a strip of ribbon around the case base and taped the ends down on the back side. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. To embellish the card I added a matching bow and two dark brown buttons threaded with DMC White.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
