Simon Says: It's A Stitch Up














Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

It's A Stitch Up!
-----------------------------------------
This week we are inviting you to add some stitches onto your creation, real, die created or faux, the choice is yours.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see the gorgeous journal page that our fabulous Guest Designer, Suman, made and please go over and visit the DT too, everyone like to receive a nice comment so please leave them some :-) 


I made a Christmas card using  the snowman from a super cute Tim Holtz Christmas Cling Stamp Set


For the background I used a new Tim Holtz Sparkles and Christmas Background stamp, inked with Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress oxide Inks. I  also added a piece of Corrugated Card from a Textured Surfaces pack, heat embossed with white powder. 
For the front panel I used the same oxide inks, then splattered with water. When it was completely dry I heat embossed some snow using a Flurry Background Stamp 
I distressed the edges and then stitched using a WeRMemory Keepers Sewing Machine (in mint to match my craft room ;-)) and black multimedia thread. 


and I finished the inside,,,,



and made a coordinating envelope to make it extra special ;-)





Thanks for looking!

Your card is adorable, Lols. I love snowmen and at Christmas time they're everywhere in my house. I love the layers of patterned paper with the corrugated piece between them. Beautiful design!

Lovely mix of light kraft and a heavenly blue. I love the dimension you gave with the corrugated piece of cardboard and the snowman with some red details is stunning. It reminds me there will be winter soon! Hugs, Marzena

Stunning card! I love everything about it from the fabulous stamped background, to my favourite blue Salty Ocean Distress Ink, to the beautiful layers of panels, to that amazing snowman stamp πŸ˜€. I know I probably always say it but I just love the way you always continue the design on the inside of the card too 😁. Now I think I may have to add that Tim Holtz Blueprint stamp set to my wish list ...lol πŸ˜‰. Have a great day! J 😊
