I'm having a blast with Stamp-a-faire today -- hope those of you who are participating are too! The projects I've seen so far have been so creative and such fun to see!
Just popping in now to let you know about a Stamp-a-faire challenge I'm hosting -- Stitching With Needles. You'll find all the challenge info, as well as link to a Machine Stitched video tutorial, over on Nichole's blog. In the video, I share a fun metallic thread that I love using, as well as tips for stitching around circular or other non-linear shapes.
Stitching is one of my favorite techniques. I love the subtle texture stitching adds and the homespun quality it can give a project. Often my stitching is more decorative, but it's also a practical alternative to adhesives, particularly with vellum or acetate!
I am challenging Stamp-a-faire participants to add machine stitching to their cards. Hope you'll play along! I look forward to seeing all the creations!
Here's a peek at my machine stitched cards:
Here I've used the fun metallic thread to stitch on my sentiment die-cut.
And here I've added stitching around the die-cut frame.
