Just Add Ink #358 – Stitching

It’s been a busy week here at Papercraft HQ, but I couldn’t resist this fabulous challenge by Rochelle!

I {LOVE} stitching on cards!!!  You’re going to love the cards the clever design team have created.

Stop by the Just Add Ink blog to see them all – and enter your stitched creation into our weekly challenge.

Just Add Ink #358 Stitching

Did I say already that I love stitching on cards?  I really do!

I often stitch cards in white, but for this challenge, I wanted to step it up a little and see how the metallic thread would go in my sewing machine.

I threaded it for the top layer, and left the bottom layer as a white bobbin thread.  It worked – to a point!  Then it kept snapping the super fine thread.

But that’s ok!  With a bit more care, a little working of the wheel (rather than the pedal), I got a great border for my card.

And a cute butterfly trail!

The hand winding was a little more work, but – look at the finish!!!  And another great way to use our SU! products!


Do you love the sentiment?  It’s from a new stamp set available in June called Colourful Seasons.

I had so much fun with all the copper on this card!

Getting photos in the wind this afternoon wasn’t so much fun!

But I had to laugh when I saw this action shot on the camera…

That butterfly just wanted to fly!

Can’t wait to see what you create for our stitching challenge.

You can use machine sewing like me, Stitched Shapes Framelits like some of the design team – or try out your own stitched creation!

  1. Hey Kelly,

    Great minds think alike I was only thinking about the metallic thread and if it would work in a sewing machine last night as I waited for my train.
    Good on you!

    Love the design btw.

    Cheers
    Donna

  2. Copper crush happening right here! Love that you used the copper thread, it looks awesome Kelly and teamed with the other copper elements…I’m in love! xx

  3. Absolutely adore this card Kelly with all its sparkly copper details! Love the trail behind the butterfly – the effort was definitely worth it – and you’re doing a great job of convincing me I need that set too 🙂 xx

  4. How gorgeous does the metallic stitching look! You’ve done a beautiful job, and created a gorgeous card – well done on the patience this must have taken. x
