Sew What?! – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting Sewing techniques,  This can be using our dies that have stitching, stamp sets that have stitching, using pens to create stitching or using your sewing machine to create the stitched look.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from KIMBERLY BOWERS BLOG, you are on the right track!

As irony would have it I planned to used my stitched dies to crate my card; however, I cannot for the live of me find my “C” plate to my Cuttlebug.  I went to Hobby Lobby, Michaels and even Walmart but no one carries it. UGH!!!!! So what do you do improvise… I started using different pieces of cardboard to see if I could create the right size shim. Thankfully I was able to find a good combination.  Now I am just waiting on Amazon to send my my new one.

I used the new Love of Color how to book.  I used the color combination Ruby, Pebble, Peacock, and Sugarplum.  I used the love from the Artbooking Cartridge. The “you” came from Colorful Texture Stamp set.  I used the Stitched Heart thin cuts and then used my black pen to create a stitched look.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto ANNEMARIE JULIAN’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting the Masking!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!

La Vie En Rose Valentine’s Day Cards

I was playing around with the adorable La Vie En Rose Complements and all those clear plastic hearts gave me an inspiration.  What if they were falling out of a jar, more specifically the cut jar on the Artistry Cartridge #M40FB6F.

La Vie En Rose ~ Jar of Hearts ~ Love you ~ CatScrapbooking.com I loved this idea so much I decided to make some more hearts with my Explore.  I used the heart from the jar.  I hid the contour lines of the jar, so it only left the heart.  I then used the circle basic shape and sized it larger than the heart.  I centered the heart over the circle and highlighted both.  Then using the slice tool I crated a heart in a circle.  I used the negative heart as well as the circle heart to make this version.

La Vie En Rose ~ Jar of Hearts ~ XOXO ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is the full list of supplies used on the two cards:

Happy Crafting!
