Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at
This week, challenge #262 is....
A Stitch In Time
(use stitching on your project. Sewing machine, Faux Stitching, etc.)
Here is the project that I created for this challenge:
Last month, my hubby bought me a cute little pink sewing machine. It's the perfect size for papercrafting and I was excited to actually pull it out and use it for this project. I used a straight stitch and tried to sew a straight line all around my wood patterned paper. I cut a two inch strip of polka dot paper and proceeded to try and sew a straight line around that also. Sewing straight is definitely not my thing, as you can see lol! Oh well, gives it character right? ;) I added some little scallop borders along the edges of the polka dot paper. I have had this patterned paper for about a year and a half now. I almost have the paper pad gone, so I'm feeling pretty excited about that. Once I had my papers picked out for my project, I knew which stamp I was going to use for image. I have had these faceless chickens and chickie face asst. stamps in my stash for quite a while now and can not remember when the last time I used them was. I tried to find out by looking at older blog posts but couldn't find any. I'm pretty sure it has been at least a year, probably longer since the last time I used them. After I had my image stamped and colored, I used a stitched oval die to cut it out and pop it up onto my card front with some foam tape. I used some older SU! punches for my greeting, also popped up with foam tape.
Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!
