Stitching at Whimsy

KKD Ari & Toby Birthday Card (2)

Morning all, hope the weather is ok where you are! We actually have blue sky and sunshine here on the South Coast today and it sure does make a difference to the mood.

Crafting is still a slow process at the moment as I can only squeeze in little short bursts in between feedings and trying to keep on top of the housework. So I’ve been having a play with digital papers as It’s something I can do one handed on the laptop while feeding Emily. I decide on my layout and resize them all to the right size (using MS Word) so that once printed and cut they are ready to glue together and my layout is complete.

Anyhoo enough waffle, it’s time for a new challenge over at Whimsy Inspirations Challenge and the theme this month is…

Real/Faux Stitching

I’ve used one of the gorgeous new digis that was released 1st March Ari & Toby from StampArt by Kathryne and some fabulous digital papers from Michelle R Designs - Shabby Chic Papers

KKD Ari & Toby Birthday Card (3)

I actually attempted to use my sewing machine but it all started going horrible wrong so I gave up with the thread and just used it to pierce the holes, which I later joined together with a blue fine liner.

My image has been coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and cut out with Sizzix Framelits dies (I’m loving the shape of these at moment). The papers are from Whimsy: Michelle R Designs - Shabby Chic Papers and the blue card is from my stash. The sentiment is from a Paula Pascual Personal Impressions set and a few finishing touches with Viva Decor Pearl Pen, Glitter Glue, Gems and a few paper flowers.

This month our prizes are…first winner:

Second winner:

And third and final winner:

A Mystery Rubber Stamp
