Sneak Peeks Day 2: Stitched For You!

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes' fabulous November Release Sneak Peeks! Today, we have a cozy offering that is sure to warm the hearts of those who receive creations made from this set!  It's one full of images designed to tell that special someone that you've stitched up something for them with love! Want to take a peek?

Whether you knit, sew or quilt, this set called Stitched For You is perfect for those hand stitched gifts or home-spun cards and creations! Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this set features 3 main images plus a handful of mix and match sentiments perfect for all occasion cards and gifts!

On to my creation!

I started by cutting out the knitting image out of Classic White Card Stock with the Stitched For You Silhouette Cut File (it will be in the store Friday!) and after I was done cutting, I stamped the scene on the cut image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then, I grabbed my Copic Markers to color this image up! (See Supplies Used below for colors!). After I was done coloring, I took papers from the new 123 Create Kit called For the Record. I just love the papers in this kit - so fun and vibrant! I cut out my mat thanks to the Spellbinders Beaded Oval die. After I was done embossing, I used a sanding block and sanded the embossed edge to reveal the paper's white core. The little strip of nordic knitting along the side is actually from the Snow Day set. JUST LOVE that little border that you can repeat! Add some stitching, some seam binding ribbon and a button and... ta da! Just that simple! Oh, I did add some razzle dazzle thanks not only to a glitter pen (on the knitting needles) but on the steam thanks to some glittler glue!

Here's a close up....
