Stitch Me Up!


Back again with my second and final card of the day. Loo is still not fixed but my brother is coming over tomorrow to take a look and see if he can sort it out temporarily until Plumber comes early next week!

Right, on to business. The challenge on Tilda & Co., this week (just in again by the skin of my teeth!) is.....

"We would love to see your work involve stitches!!! Now this could be as simple as hand stitching, machine stitching, or even faux stitching....."



Decided to use the Teddy from Magnolia and coloured him with Brushables. Added a sentiment from the Just Hatched set from Papertrey Ink. Dark blue c.s. is Bazzill Bling and lighter blue c.s. is also Bazzill, with the small panel run through the Cuttlebug with the Hearts embossing folder. Stitches on outer edge of card are Doodlebug rub-ons as is the button. Ribbon is from Dovecraft, eyelets and ribbon (through eyelets) are from my stash. Tiny sticky gems are from Papermania.

Off to put the boys to bed now and then plan to sit down and catch up on my blogging.

Gorgeous. I have been thinking about a Cuttlebug for a while - and your card may have just swung it - love the effect of the embossing. (my birthday is not far away - I will leave hubby little hints around the house!)

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
