Tea Party Challenge : Stitches ans Ribbon!!!

Hello my friends. It's time for another smARTworks Tea Party Time, my challenge for you was to create a project using "Stitches and Ribbon".
Here are my creations:

So happy for you! : This is a very monochromatic card. For this card I used LOL Set. I stamped the image in Basic Brown Ink and the sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, embossed then using Clear Embossing powder.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: White, Tan Parchment (The Paper Company).
Paper: SU Bella Rose.
Stamps: LOL by smARTworks.
Ink: Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip Craft.
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon, Dew drops.
Accessories: Sewing machine, white thread, SU Dimensionals, 3D foam EK-Success, Clear Embossing powder, Embossing gun

Happy Birthday: For this card I used Tulip Square Set. I stamped the image and sentiment in a piece of Aida Fabric, this is especial for cross stitch, did I mention that I love cross stitching? I used straight , cross and chain stitches. I waved the ribbon around, positioned on a piece on White CS, then onto a piece of Riding Hood Red and finally onto the card base (Kraft color). I used white thread to go around the Kraft color piece. I had a lot of fun making this card, I usually cross stitch every night when I am watching TV :)
Card Recipe:

Card Stock: Kraft, Riding Hood Red, White.
Stamps: Tulip Square Set.
Embellishments: Green Ribbon, Dew drops.
Accessories: Sewing machine, white thread, Aida Fabric, DMC Thread (red, pink, green), Mini glue dots, 3D foam Ek_Success.

  1. You, my dear, are truly the Queen of Card Stitching! I really love both cards, but your needlework on the aida is amazing!

  2. Wow, these are great! Can't believe you actually stitched the tulips - they look amazing (I used to x-stitch, but must admit that was a hobby that fell to the wayside after I started stamping).

    Thanks for such a fun theme, too! :)

  3. Wow, very "stitchy" of you. Great idea to use the aida cloth as a canvas!! And I love the ribbon on the first card as well as the monochromatic look! Fabulous!! Thanks for the fun Giovana!!
