I used Two Scoops - Pistachio Almond paper & K & Co - Hopscotch paper. I coloured my Sugar Nellie- Dexter the Bear with watercolours. I also made him a little jumper with my Pistachio Almond paper. I embellished with white ribbon, a few buttons and drew freehand stitches all around my card!
I used some Rob and Bob papers, a photo of Georgia when she was a few months old, and 2 different stitch stamps around the edges and dividing into sections. I also stitched buttons to the flower embellishments!
I started by stamping a flower by Duo Designs onto Laura Ashley paper - then I cut the floer out and stamped the image again onto plain blue paper. The flower was then attached using a white button which is stitched on! I stamped the words and stitched the paper on. The card was then finished off with more buttons and stitches were added with Hot off The Press stamps.
I have used Kanban double sided patterned papers and my good old faithful sewing machine for the black zig zag stitching. The image is a from Stampin' Up set called 'Haute Couture' and I have sort of paper pieced her hat. Embellished with Flora Doodle spotty flower and satin ribbon.
I used a trapunto stencil as a guide to cut out, emboss and paper prick the base card. I stitched through the holes with blending filament and added clear beads. The embossed detail was highlighted with chalk. The card base was then backed with blue card. The silk flower and a 'sister' sticker were added to finish off.
I made an ATC this week and made the main focus a flower with a stitched stem using the Bazzill In Stitch'z 'Silly Stitch'z' template and pink floss. I added some Prima flowers, a stamped message and Penny Black cute little mouse image. I also did some faux stitching around the edge of the ATC and matted this all onto some lush purple Bazzill Bling card stock.
