Cheery Lynn Designs - Stitch it Up


Good Morning :)

So our new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs is to use stitching (real or faux) somewhere on your project.  Stitching is probably my favourite thing to add to cards as it makes it feel really personal and always looks like it took ages to make.  ;)  Its much quicker for me now I have got the hang of the mini sewing machine though! lol.  As always the winner will receive a brilliant voucher for $20 to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store.

I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and stitched First Edition Isabelle papers to brown bazzil cardstock.  I cut the gorgeous Fanciful Flourish in brown card and stuck to the pink paper panel tucked behind the main image.  The beautiful border is the Celtic Weave die with the Queen Anne's Lace at the bottom.  The fabulous doily is from the new releases and is called Pinwheel - this is a stunning die and cuts brilliantly! :)

I added some mini dimensional butterflies for a bit of flutter and a wooden flower and button from my stash.

All dies used on this card are:


You still have lots of time to enter the challenge this week, and dont forget there is always wonderful daily inspiration from the rest of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.

Have a smashing week everyone and thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

The wooden flower with the button adds beatuifully to the whole effect echoing the little flowers she's smelling & I love your colour combination of patterned papers with die cuts. that little bit of thread in the button really warms the whole & accents here hair colouring too.

This is beautiful, Alison! Gorgeous image and fabulous dies. I remember when you would do all you stitching by hand. It must be much better for you to now be able to use your machine x
