Stitching Time

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by my blog today to see my DT project for Cheery Lynn Designs. I have a small sewing I bought in a sale a few years ago and it lies neglected in my craft room so this weeks challenge was the perfect inspiration I needed to use it.

I love the Tiny French Pastry Doily die and it's versatility of using complete, to compliment the other sizes it comes in or cutting it into sections. On this card I cut it out in black card to accent on layers of my card and also in brown card to use as photo corners on my topper.

My flower has been made by cutting out an old lint bandage with the Gardenia strip, I then sprayed my petals with some water and coloured with distress stain. Scrunched the material and dried with my heat gun. Once dry I unravelled them and layered a few together with a couple of stitches and a little lace.

My zig zag is made by cutting out the Expandable Tiny Borders in Kraft paper. I put a little faux stitching in the centre before spraying with a little water to scrunch it up for texture and only put a little glue in some areas so it didn't lie flat on the card. I stitched some lace into the layers using my machine. Adding on my other embellishments and die cuts to finish.

I'll be back on Tuesday next week to share the post with my other Teamies as we showcase the exciting New Release at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I'd love if you have time to leave me a comment.
