Now I have a functioning sewing machine (which I hate, by the way) and four cabinets filled to overflowing with sewing, embroidery and quilting stash. Couldn't think how to use any of these without pulling out that sewing machine, fighting to get it threaded and set to the proper stitch, and doing the usual random stitching on a card unless there was something "stitchy" as the focal point of that card.
And while I own several sets of "crafty" stamps and a few sets of dies which leave faux stitching in their wake, none of them were to hand today. Except...
The Tim Holtz "Stitches" stamp set. Now this set actually mimics what the backs of my sewing usually look like when my sewing machine acts up and loses tension --- an all too frequent occurrence. So, without pulling the stamps from the background, I inked up the entire set and stamped with Archival Ink. I found a sentiment that worked in a Waffle Flower stamp set and added some heart enamel "dots" to complete this clean and simple card:
- Stamps: Stampers Anonymous "Stitches" (CMS365) and Waffle Flower "Embroidered Greetings" (271170)
- Inks: Archival "Jet Black" and "Shadow Grey"
- Papers: Neena Solar white
- Embellishments: Altenew Enamel Dots (ALT2591)
