Ha ha! I did it! I used stitching on a card without stitching! Did I loose you yet?
Stay with me a little bit longer and I will show you! Heart 2 Heart Challenges is having a Nip and Tuck challenge to get us all to incorporate some form of stitching in our project this week, so of course I am linking up. Um, I feel like a stubborn 2 year old as I whine, stomp my foot, and say, NO, I don't want to stitch! I papercraft--I do NOT sew! My mother sews really well, but that gene seems to have skipped a generation. So what's a girl to do?
Stamp. With Stitches! ;)
I created a downpour with the Close to My Heart My Acrylix set C1459 Stitched Together. The clouds are cut with my Cricut Artiste Cartridge and inked with Whisper a bit on the wispy/sloppy side.
I used the Later Sk8ter Paper Packet for the plaid pattern in the umbrella...my favorite one in the pack!
I made this sentiment using the C1494 Card Word Puzzle My Acrylix and the C1540 Hello Blooms My Acrylix.
I used a brand new toy for this card that I have been WANTING so badly to try. It is a wafer die from My Creative Time. If you look closely, you will see....MORE STITCHING!!! I love it when a no-sew plan comes together! ;) Not sure if you can see it, but I also used a silver vinyl for the handle.
So, about the time I was photo editing, I realized I had seen raindrop stitches before, but WHERE??? A quick glance back at the H2H April Challenges gave me the answer! My crafty Diva friend, Jayma Malme had used hand drawn stitches in her DT example! Go see it HERE. LOVE! Thanks for the awesome subconscious inspiration, Jayma! :)
