Tuesday Tutorial: You Have Me In Stitches 13

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Britten here today subbing for one very tired Mama Megan…!!

I came across this Close to My Heart stamp set “Simple Stitches” in my stash today and thought it would coordinate so well with the Paper Layerz design called “Stitches in Time” that I immediately got out my paper, inks and nesting dies and starting playing!

What do you think about one-layer cards?   Do  you create your own backgrounds?  Sound simple…or scary?

I hope you enjoyed this Tuesday Tutorial!

Now…Go Scrap Something!

    Britten, thanks for showing us how to make this quick, but very cute card. Sometimes we get caught up in trying to use ALL of our embellishments in one card or layout and you just showed us we don’t have to do that. Thanks.

    Lately, I’ve been generating lots of “rainbow” inspired cards on white backgrounds. There must be something in the air…Of course, it’s all this spring precipitation! I love your quick take on this! I’m sure Megan is grateful to have you helping out. I appreciate your taking the time to inspire us!

    Love the card, I do alot of m own backgrounds as I cannot find pattern papers here in Mexico. I go to the paper district and buy large sheets of paper andhtey cut it to size. I also make layer cards as I lvoe to create them. Hopefully will be able to order some sparkle lights and ink from Megsan as they look wonderful. hope she will ship here and not break the bank with shipping LOL
    God Bless

    Very cute card! I love the look of stitches without sewing! I am like you and dont like to piddle around with changing the threads……. Happy Scrapping!

    Lovely card! I have a suggestion, instead of using removable adhesive and paper scraps for blocking off the edges of the card while stamping the stitches, you could use 3X5 post-its and not have to worry about removing the adhesive once done. If you suggested this, I apologize, my speakers aren’t working on my computer!
