Make It Monday #78 Stamping and Stitching

Tuesday, August 14, 2012


When I first saw stitching in this week's MIM title I thought, "Well, I'm gonna sit this one out."  I don't sew.  This is different though.  No machine involved!  I stamped the banner string in Berry Sorbet ink, poked some holes, and used Heather's back stitch.  It was so easy and it guarantees you end up with your floss on the back side of your project! 







Cardstock: White, Melon Berry
Stamps: Banner Builder, Star Prints
Ink: Melon Berry, Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet
Dies: Double Ended Banner
Other: Spring Moss Buttons, Embroidery Floss

  12. Super cute! I love your sweet little banner. And I feel the same way about my sewing machine as you seem to. I'd much rather hand stitch any day of the week. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card, Kara!
