Was sitting on the couch flipping through the June issue of Creating Keepsakes and to what did my wondering eyes did appear but this Hero Arts ad! That’s my card in blue on the left, and Sally’s card is on the right — directions for it are here.
I just love these Stamp Stitches, they really do look real! Here’s how I made my card — paint watercolors from the watercolor paint wheel on the stamp, mist and stamp on watercolor paper. Emboss in clear. Then paint with watercolors — it all matches! Pierce the paper with a hat pin. Stamp all over a blue notecard with the stitched circles in VersaMark ink, then sew all over them with a sewing machine without thread. Lightly glue three edges of the flower panel to the card, then sew around the three edges — with thread this time, ha!
If you see this card in the Stamp Stitches spring supplement, you’ll notice that I stamped three messages on scraps of cardstock, trimmed them, tied ribbons to the ends, and tucked them in the unstitched side.
Supplies: Sitched Flower Trio (H4063), Stitched Circles (F4028) and Pocketful o’ Sunny Messages (LL123), Assorted Crystal Gemstones (CH117) for the flower centers.
