In stitches! - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning everyone!

Remember to go here for my candy and/or challenge! (photo of the first part of the candy coming later today!)

And now on to my Sweet Stampin' DT creation for this week. It's Team Fi's turn, and we're following the theme In stitches.

Now, those of you that have paid close attention to my blog know I don't do sewing machines, so for me this meant faux stitches! And it just so happens I have the LOTV "Little stitches" set! I used not one, not two, but three different ones on this card!

As you can see, I used a Magnolia stamp (Oh my! Yes, really, I do own stamps other than LOTV!) and I teamed it up with Papermania "Ahoy There" papers. Add some twine, blooms, gems, charms, brads and a sea shell, and this is the result! (I'm kinda fond of the whole nautical theme... And this is one of only 2 paper pads I have in two separate sizes!)

So there you have it. And if you'd like to be in the running to win our weekly prize, which this week is from Di's Digis, or our monthly prize from Cuddly Buddly, then make sure you enter something that corresponds with the theme, and remember... It must include stamping! (rubber or digital)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon says stamp - "A" is for... Ahoy!
Bunny Zoe's crafts - Stitching
Crafting when we can - Challenge 61 (1 image, 2 twine, red, white and blue colour scheme)

Have a fabulous day my dears.

Stunning nautical themed card and so fab in red, white and blue!
The faux stitching looks great and how lovely to use several different types :-)
I love my stitching but I also am not a fan of the sewing machine so do it by hand - I just prick the holes with a pokey tool and sew with DMC thread. It's something to do in front of the TV anyway!
Big hugs, Kat xx
