A Stitchable Donut Card

Hello and Happy Friday!  This is my last Friday off this summer!  Even though it was a weird summer that moved very slowly, here on the last day it feels like it sped by!  I am excited to be back to work though and can't wait to see my students, even if only virtually!

I created a few other cards for the Stitchables release from Waffle Flower Crafts earlier in the month.  I thought I'd share one of them with you today!

I used the Stitchable Circles Die to along the bottom of a white card base.  I stitched the donuts using DMC floss in a caramel brown and bright pink color.  I added seed beads from my bead stash to create the look of sprinkles.  The sentiment from the Stitched Sentiments Stamp Set was perfect for this card!

This stitched design was made into a free downloadable pattern.  Pop over to the Stitchables area of the Waffle Flower Shop to find it!

Off to enjoy my last Friday off!  Have a great weekend!

Waffle Flower Stitchables Blog Hop

Hello friends!

I am so excited to be hopping along with the Waffle Flower team today!  For their latest release, Waffle Flower has merged two of my favorite crafts- card making and cross stitching!  Their new Stitchables products are so fun and innovative!

Waffle Flower’s Stitchable products are now available in the store!  In case you missed it, Nina introduced the beginner friendly Stitched Borders here, and the Pinking Shapes and Holiday Shapes for more experienced users. You can also find some Coordinating Products here!

I created two cards for the hop today!  I pulled inspiration some two patterns I stitched last year.  The first one is part of Hands On Design's Chalk Full: Harvest and inspired by Priscilla Blain.  I pulled one flower from the pattern to stitch on the Stitchables Pinking Circle Die.

I cut the die from black cardstock and gave it a chalkboard look with white pigment ink before I stitched the flower.  The design was meant to look like chalkboard art and I love that you can diecut any color paper to use with the Stitchable Pinking Dies.  Endless possibilities, right?  Here is a closer look:

This was stitched using overdyed threads by Gentle Arts Sampler Threads and Classic Colors.  I also used the new Stitched Sentiment Stamp Set for the sentiment and stitched with my sewing machine on either side of it to keep with the theme.

My second card features the smallest llama from the Llama Lump pattern by Plum Street Samplers.  I stitched him up on some linen textured kraft cardstock cut with the Stitchable Pinking Rectangle Die.  

This was also stitched using overdyed threads from Gentle Arts Sampler Threads, Classic Colors, and Weeks Dye Works.  You can really see the varigation in the grass and the llama's fur :)

The sentiment is also from the Stitched Sentiments Stamp Set.  The simple hello is perfect for this card!

These dies really sparked my imagination to think up a bunch of fun things to do with them!  I can't wait to share some of the other things I've been stitching soon!
