handstitching

Hi!
Lately I have been doing a lot of handstitching on my projects and what perfect timing...the CREATE blog is having another CARDS challenge and it's handstitching! :)




 
So I drew this cute cat, cut out a template and traced it on orange cardstock that I had already stamped with Hero Arts Large Canvas Stripes (LOVE that stamp). I also created my 'notebook page' using Hero Arts Ledger cling...then I lightly using a ruler drew a few lines in red. I also used SRM stickers (Sticker Sentiments #51003 Happy Birthday)...I often cut the stickers up like in this case...I just wanted the word 'birthday'.



LOVE to do handstiching...very theraputic BUT not when you have 3 bambinos running around yelling MAMA, MAMA, MAMA.... I need to get myself a sewing machine!!

Also make sure to pop by on Monday for a little 'One Buck Monday'...if you like to use digi stamps I've got a new one and it'll sell for $1 all day Monday before I send it off to Squigglefly.

Have a great weekend!
Pin It!

You HAND-STITCHED all that? Yes, you need a machine. Let the whining and begging commence.

Jane, this is the cutest!! I love the sweet little plaid kitty. I need to get that canvas background! Your hand-stitching is better than my use of a sewing machine. LOL
