City Crafter Challenge Blog - A Few Stitches

This week's challenge at City Crafter is to use faux stitching on your project. 

Yes, I know Valentine's Day has gone but when I found this heart and stitches stamp from Inkydoodles in my stash, I knew it would be perfect for this challenge AND for a card for my partner. 

I stamped it onto a linen effect card base and then stamped it again in red on spare card, cut out three hearts and pieced them on. The sentiments are by Stamping Bella and Heidi Swapp. 

Our Guest Designer this week is Bailey Rosy , so I hope you'll come over to City Crafter and see what she and the rest of the DT have made , and enter your own project,

You can never have too many hearts and they are always in season if you ask me. This is such a pretty card and I love the faux stitching with those pretty hearts. Thank you so much for having me as guest designer this week at City Crafter.

A perfect stamp for this weeks' theme; the iregular stitching is lovely to see and paired with the hearts it's perfect. Love it!

I love stitching on cards, real or faux,with dies or stamps or real thread, you name it! I think this is the type of design that is spot on for a man, sweet in a cool,not over the top cute way. But would even work for a woman.
