Stitching the Stars for As You See It Challenges

 Friday brings with it a new As You See It Challenge, and this week it is a Theme Challenge. The theme is Sewing and Stitching. Here is the theme banner:

I found this one a bit difficult because I felt I was limited to stitched dies, not having any sewing stamp sets available. Because I am working on some Christmas designs for a Christmas Card Online Class, I decided to use my Stitched Stars dies for this one! (It's a really beautiful and versatile die set, if you don't already have it.) And then, like a bolt of lightening, I thought, "What if I could actually stitch in the die cut stitched holes?" Here's where that line of thinking got me - well, at least partially:

  • I die cut the watercolour looking Snowflake Splendour DSP with the Stitched Rectangles Dies for the background and mounted it on Silver Foil Sheet and then on Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  • I die cut the star flourish from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and added it to the top left of the card using small dots of liquid glue.
  • I die cut the largest and smallest stitched stars from the center of the Silver Foil sheet to save paper. With a very small needle, I started to actually stitch some Silver Metallic Thread through the holes in the largest silver star, then left the needle and loose thread  to mount on the card front after adhering the foil star.
  • The other two stars are die cut from a piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and some Coastal Cabana cardstock.
  • The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and die cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
