Sew Rite!


Howdy peeps! Yes, I still know how to spell :).

But today, I'm one of 88 lucky designers in the MEGA March blog hop for JustRite!

For my card I chose a set way out of my normal comfort zone - the Stitched with Love set! Now, if you know me, you know I'm EXACTLY as likely to sew as I am to IRON! :D

However, I loved the images in this set, especially this beautiful little spool. There's something super charming about little spools of thread.

I have the wood stamper, so stamped the center spool image on white cardstock, pierced it, and then stitched it with my linen thread. The background is one of the stitched borders in the set, that I stamped in white craft ink on kraft.

Then I cut the buttons with my Sizzlits die and made a border with a Martha Stewart border punch my buddy Lisa gave me.

The card base is Barely Banana, and so is the ribbon, and I colored the spool with Copics and my white gel pen.

Now, are you ready to keep hopping? You're not going to believe what these bloggers have done!

Here's the full list in case you need a breadcrumb trail - enjoy, and see the details below about the crazy huge list of prizes you can win!

  74. okay, with your news of yesterday about becoming an auntie, i thought this card would be a good baby card. you know, stitched together with love reminds me of "knit together" in my mother's womb. not to get all scriptural and all, but that's what came to mind. way to push yourself outside your comfort zone and still keep a little blue in there!

    speaking of baby, does he have a name yet?
