Merriest Wishes

Hello there,

I am here sharing the 2nd hand stitched card.

I am kind of obsessed with stitching lately because of MFT Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics.

You can download cross-stitch patterns on MFT’ s website here or creat your own patterns.I am new to cross-stitching so I use the patterns which were offered by MFT. Actually, you can find a lot patterns by Google “Cross stitch pattern”.

Here is the card for a dear friend who is obsessed with PURPLEs. Hope she will love it!

Today I am sharing my very first hand stitched tag. I spent morning hours to stitch and I do enjoy the stitching process. I wish I could have more time to stitch more tags for friends.

Here are the supplies I used

  1. MFT Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics
  2. MFT Snow Globe Sentiments
  3. The cotton strings were bought at a local stationary store.

Season’s Greetings

Today I am sharing a card with ink blending technique.

  1. Trim the masking paper into A2 size and cut a rectangle from the center of the A2 size masking paper.
  2. Adhere the A2 masking paper onto the watercolor paper.
  3. Watercolor paper was stenciled in Distress inks with MFT Drifts & Hills stencil, then splash some white paint.
  4. Stamp MFT Modern Trees & the sentiment on the hill with black ink, then peel off the masking paper.
  5. Frame the scene with a rectangle frame.

I have to apologize for the sentiment a little shift to the left, but I do love this ink blending result. This is for the entry of AAA Cards Challenge.

Christmas Greetings

I’ve watched Virginia’s tutorial video about watercoloring many many times, and I always wait a perfect moment to creat cards with this technique.  I think it’s time to start with a X’mas card.

The stamps are from                                           Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia.

  1. I dabbed wild honey Distress ink with mini ink blending tool and  sponged on the middle of the solid stamps for the pistil.
  2.  I dabbed abandoned coral Distress ink with mini ink blending tool and sponged on the rest part of the solid stamp.
  3. I sprayed water on the inked stamp, then stamped on watercolor paper.
  4. I dabbed  vintage photo Distress Oxide ink on the outline stamp and stamped on the coordinating position.
  5. I stamped the poinsettia with different colors and added leaves around.

I think I finally finished a pretty X’mas card with these stamps since I got them last X’mas.
