Pretty Pink Posh, Stitched Cards

Half done Cards (1)

Happy September! Needed to take a break after a very productive August! 25 cards made, 26 mailed and 17 blogposts! This month I’m challenging myself to use all the colored images and background that never got made into cards!

My first completed card card uses a stitched background (unfortunately don’t remember the company/name of the die), along with a colored butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh.

To assemble the card I inked up a scrap piece of white paper with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink. Then I die cut is using the Happy Birthday to You Script Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I layered a piece of vellum under the die cut sentiment so it doesn’t blending into the background. Lastly I adhered the butterfly cutout using a little foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and as always here’s a list of products I used :

Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set
Happy Birthday to You Script Die
Embroidery Floss
Heavy weight white cardstock

Till the next time, stay safe, sane and crafty!

Stitched Cards

Stitched backgrounds and word die cuts

Does anyone else feel that their weekends tend to be busy than weekdays! I was going to share some last minute Ramadan cards today, but that isn’t happening as I am still putting them together! So instead I am sharing some cards that I sent out yesterday with happy mail (yes I made it to the post office!)


Have you caught the stitching bug yet? I’ve been stitching since last summer, and I am OBSESSED! I take it with me everywhere, flights, road trips, lunch breaks, literally everywhere as I have a little pouch in my purse ALL THE TIME! But some how I never seem to finish them into cards, so that was the challenge to my self this weekend, and I think I’m happy with what I made!

Since the stitched background is itself a show stopper, I decided to keep the rest of the card relatively simple and use some sentiment dies to finish them off.


For the first card, I used the “get well soon” die from Pretty Pink Posh, I stacked them and added some glossy accents to add some dimension. I also added a cherry blossom die cut (to cover up the fact that I didn’t center the die cuts).


On the second card, I cut out the “hugs” word from the Hugs Shaker Die, stacked them too, this time ending with a glitter layer on the top. I had a colored fuchsia left over from a different card and added that to finish it off.


Lastly, I used two sentiment sets from Pretty Pink Posh to finish this card, I didn’t stack the die cuts on this card, but I thought that they looked just as good!

Do you stitch on your cards? If so please share your favorite die in the comments along with how you finish them into a card!
