Xmas in July

When I saw this cute snowman I was sold and had to use it on a card. After playing around a bit with a stitching pattern, this is the card that came out.


The cute image is a from Beccy's Place, the pattern from Ann's Paper Art and the text is a stamp from Magnolia.

This fortnight challenge is "Use a punch".

Well since I still have enough punches next to all the dies this is not too difficult. I used a border punch from Martha Stewart, layered arches. The funny ostrich image is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.

Old stencil


When cleaned my crafting supplies I came across some old stencils, the one I used before I got a machine. This stencil is a stitching stencil from Ann's Paper Art that is for manual pricking. I loved finding this forgotten treasure.

Mix and match


We did a challenge to mix the patterns of one of the embroidery sheets from Ann's Paper Art with the an image from a different sheet. This is the card I created for that.

Spring Embroidery

Last weeks I had some problems with my hand that caused a break in card making. To start again I used a pre-pricked card from Ann's Paper Art from the card embroidery sheet 18.


For finishing I used a die from Nellie Snellen and the image from card embroidery sheet 13.

New 3D sheets

New 3D Decoupage sheets with beautiful images are now available from Ann's Paper Art.
Ann has created 2 new patterns to go with the new sheets. These FREE patterns can be downloaded of the  Card embroidery blog. I had the opportunity to already create 2 cards with them in combination with the new sheets.


For this card I used APA3D005 (my favorite sheet) and the dies from Marianne Design (corner and text).


My second card is with APA3D008 and with this card I used a die from Joy for the border.
