Stamped Stitches

Sunday, May 25, 2014

 
Recently I added Jayne's card to the Friday Inspiration File.
Her card has a beautiful stitched pattern on it that I wanted to try to recreate with my stamps.
I had a few stamps in mind since I had used them before to create faux stitched looks.
This one, for example, uses the plus sign from Headline Alphabet to create the stitches.
 
 
I decided to use a little stamp from Button Boutique on this card.
It seemed like a better size for this design.
 
 
To achieve the light berry color I just 'stamped off'
once before stamping onto my project.
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Enjoy the hop!

  3. LOVE it!!
    And since I cross stitch...
    how did you make the pattern?
    Did you have something to go by or just free hand it because if you free handed it...
    WOWSERS!!!
    I need patterns so I'm even more impressed that someone can do it free handed! :)
    But again...
    one tiny, simple stamp and look what you did...
    you amaze me! :)
