A very warm welcome to you all today. Before we start the Crafting for Gold, I would like to thank everyone for their warm good luck wishes. All went well with Alis operation yesterday, she is well strapped up and feeling very sore, but it appears that everything was successful. Her radial nerve was trapped in her forearm and wrist and was causing pain in her thumb and hand - not nice.
Thankfully Ali was ahead with making creations for this event and with several of the posts, so over to Ali for todays details.
Today the design team had to use stitching real or faux. For todays fab prize given to us by Crafts & Me check out our Inspiration Blog here.
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
I was sent this image from my teamie Cebelica once again beautifully coloured, all I had to do was dream up a design that included stitching!
Cebelica's swing image was so sweet that I felt I had to make it swing. I had a three fold card that for some reason had an aperture in two sides!! So I attached the image with ribbon and sandwiched it in-between the two folds of card. I used chalk to colour the white card blueish like the sky in Cebelica's image. I faux stitched around the inside of the card and the aperture. As for the ribbons it was really a no brainer, it had to be the NEW Candy Saddle Stitch here I threaded both turquoise and the red through the hole in the back of the "I Love You" button here. To finish the card i used our Saddle Stitch Happy Birthday ribbon here in red.
I think thats enough stitch!
