STAMPlorations February Challenge #4

Hi Everybody - its time for a new monthly challenge at STAMPlorations!

as you can see, the theme is Stamping and Stitches

I am using the cute using VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals, which I stamped on patterned paper and heat embossed. I love that little set - its designed with so much love and has cute little details, like the ribbons you can "wrap" around the jar

the sentiment is pieced together using Party Dots from Neat&Tangled and Jewish Greetings from Impression Obsession, heat embossed on vellum and stitched - yes stitched to the card - I had to pull out my sewing machine for that. I did try the stitching on paper before I used it on the card and it worked fine, but then the paper was slightly different and in the end the tension on the thread was not correct for the card.....or should I have not pointed that out to you?

I am also adding this card to The Crafting Cafe February challenge - embossing

By the way - this is the prize package for February at STAMPlorations


It includes 1 package of Nantucket Wood Shapes (Pink Paislee), 1 package of Mixed Half Circle Chipboard Banner Album (Maya Road), 1 package of Winter's Roses - Aquamarine (Maya Road), 1 package of  Tranquility Sunflower Metal Slides (Maya Road), and 1 package of Mulberry Paper Flowers.
I order to qualify for the prize you have to participate in all the challenges for the month - the February challenge and the two sketch challenges.

My son will be turning 13 this year and so are his classmates - its Bar Mitzvah season! Unfortunately there are hardly any good stamps out for that, or I don't know them....

So go ahead and ink up your stamps and pull out your sewing machine,your stitches stamps or draw them on - you have until  February 28 to link up you card, the winner will be announced March 4.

Gut, die Stiche sind nicht korrekt, aber hier finde ich sie durchaus korrekt!!! Also muss ich meine Nähmaschine für diese Challenge aus der Ecke holen und quälen *lach kaputt*

Hi Cornelia. The Ecclectic Florals look great embossed in white. I love that your stitching looks a bit uneven. It adds character. Have a great day! hugs Monika xxx

Ein richtiger Augenschmaus diese Karte! Die Naht finde ich toll grad so wie sie ist, ...ein bisschen verzogen passt da wunderbar!

Beautiful card, Cornelia. Love the teal color combination on your card, beautiful and so artsy. I found the stitching perfect. :-)
