SHOPPING OUR STASH #262 - A Stitch In Time


Hello and welcome crafty peeps! We have a fun challenge for you this week at SHOPPING OUR STASH: A Stitch In Time - for this challenge, we want to see stitching on your project, whether that be from a sewing machine, cross stitching, faux stitching, etc. You get the gist. Here's my card:


 and the inside:

I dug out my Sew Easy tool for this one, and used a few of the different attachments for my stitching. (Yes, I know my rows look wonky. Maybe I meant for that to happen! LOL!) My card base is a dark grey, but I lightly sponged over it with Gathered Twigs DI to get some brown tones in it. (I had no taupe card stock, so I made it. Sort of. It definitely looks more taupe irl.) The panel is popped up on foam squares, and a simple sentiment was added.

I hope you find some time to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash. We'd love to see your project in the gallery. For more inspiration, do check out what my teammies created, and leave them some love on their blogs! Thanks for visiting, and stay cool - it's another hot one out there!

  2. I always wish that the sewing machine and I didn't have a hate-hate relationship because I think stitching on cards is so cool. Case in point - your creation is simple, chic and fab!

  6. Wonderful card! Love the stitching (which is only real if it is wonky - at least that is what I tell myself when I try to stitch!!). Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  12. Hello Chris: I've never heard of an Easy Sew tool, is this like a sewing machine? But, whatever it is, you did a fantastic job with this stitching, love all 3 different designs, just so beautiful.
    This is one awesome interpretation of this challenge.
    Hugs,
