Hello Sunshine Stitched Friendship Card | Studio Katia



Hello and Happy Friday my Friends!

Today's card was inspired by the weather and the gorgeous sunny days we have had recently. Plus since traveling is out of the question at least I can daydream about being in the tropics somewhere.

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I started by die cutting the background using the MINI POLKA DOTS COVER DIE and then just stitched this star-like pattern on to it. I thought this was a great way to stretch out the use of this cover die.


Next, I stamped out and die cut the stamps from the ALOHA set and colored them in using Copic markers.


I then arranged the flowers and popped up using foam tape on to the stitched background that I had glued on top of the card base.


I then added the sentiments on the card to complete the design. The script hello comes from the YOU'RE SO RANUNCULUS DIES that I stacked and glued together and the sunshine comes from the ALOHA stamp set that I stamped onto a banner from the BEST EVER DIES set.


To finish off the card I added some PRISMATIC SKY PEARLS to the background and added some shine by painting the flowers using LIQUID PIXIE DUST and also adding glossy accents.

I hope this Hello Sunshine Stitched Friendship Card inspired you today. Thank you all so much for stopping by!

Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Fresh Bunch | Thinking Of You Stitched Card


Hey Friends! 

I'm back again with another stitched card today and I hope you love it as much as I do 😍 This was the other card panel I completed on my vacation this summer and finally am using it! Click HERE to see the previous stitched card I made.

The stitched area was created by running the middle border die from the Stitched Borders Die Set three times on the top part of the panel and twice on the bottom half through the Sizzix, leaving a space for the sentiment in between. I then created an arrow like stitch by stitching diagonally one way on the top row and then by going the opposite way the next row. I then looped in and out through the middle to create the dash in the arrow. Repeated the same process with each color. Once the stitching was all done I added multi-medium glue to the back of the panel and glued it down onto a piece of cardstock trimmed a little smaller than the panel. I then stuck the panel under a heavy book to dry flat.

This gorgeous stamped image comes from the Fresh Bunch Stamp Set, the Studio Katia and Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Collaboration. Hope you all got your set as once they sell out they are gone forever! 

I used Blackout ink to stamp out the image onto Neenah cardstock. Colored the florals in using a blue and green combination of Copics. (Colorless Blender, B00, B02, B05, B16, B29, B66, B69, G02, G12, YG13, YG17, YG67) Added highlights with a white Uniball Signo pen and a clear Wink of Stella was used on just the flowers (difficult to see in the photos). I then fussy cut the image as I didn't have the coordinating die.

Next, I stamped out the thinking of you onto the white space of the stitched panel and then added the floral piece to the left of the sentiment using foam tape. I then adhered a few of the August and September Crystals to it using the new Studio Katia glue, LOVE this glue!!!

Stitched Quilt Inspired Card

Hello dear friends! 
My card today is dedicated to all of you that inspire me on a daily basis. I am so thankful for all the crafty friends I have made and met because of this crazy Card Making/Papercrafting Community! YOU are all so amazing! I am inspired daily by all that I see from you on Facebook, Instagram, everywhere I look, there is SO much talent and inspiration.

So with that said, today I am sharing with you this stitched quilt card. This was definitely a labor of love to create as it took me most of the Summer to complete. The card was hugely inspired by the one and only Jennifer McGuire, the cardmaking Goddess!!! I have always loved her stitched cards but have never found time to try them. I now know why she does these types of cards while on vacation. Well, this Summer I spent 4 weeks in Portugal visiting my family. So to keep from having any crafty withdrawals, I took along with me some card panels that I had die cut with various patterns, embroidery needles, and a variety of colorful thread. The kids and I were so busy that I was only able to complete a couple of the panels as the only downtime I had was when we were at the beach.

I just LOVE how this card turned out, and it was definitely worth all those beach hours!

Stitched Quilt Inspired Card by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

To make this card:
  • I ran the small square stitch die from the Stitch Border Die set through the die cut machine 20 times!!! 
  • Four times along the top and five rows down.
  • I used masking tape to hold the square in place while running it each time through the machine.
  • I eyeballed the spacing, so my squares aren't perfect. If you want perfect, use a ruler to divide the card panel first.
  • Next, find yourself a beach, LOL... or a somewhere where you have plenty of time. Start stitching away! 
  • I worked on one square at a time. I began with one color along the outer square and then switched colors for the middle square. To the inside, I used a flower like a stitch by always stitching from the center. (Sorry, not sure what these stitches are actually called, haha!) I also had all my needles threaded with different colors to save on threading them each time.
  • Once all my colorful squares were completed, I then used a white thread to connect the squares together. Looks like some fancy stitching but it was stitched the same way as the smaller squares I promise. The spacing just makes it look that way!
  • Once the inside was all done I then stitched along the outside of the panel, finishing off the edges.
  • To the bottom, I created a little fringed trimmed edge by looping doubled up thread and tying it in knots. To keep the knots from unraveling I added a small amount of multi-medium matt glue to each of them.
  • On a scrap piece of black cardstock, I stamped out the "you inspire me" sentiment from Japanese Peony set and heat set it with a white embossing powder. 
  • I then used the long stitched border strip to die cut the holes along the top and the bottom of the sentiment strip.
  • Next, I attached the sentiment strip to the card, trying to line up the holes as best as possible as I stitched it into place.
  • To attach the Satin Vinca flowers I used a clear thread and a sewing needle, I also used a Silver Dust Seed Bead in the center of each flower. Since I placed the flowers where no holes were pierced I made new holes with the needle as they would not be seen and covered up by the flowers.
  • Now that the panel was complete, I added multi-medium glue to the entire threaded back and glued that to another piece of cardstock that I had trimmed a little smaller than the panel. I then placed it under a heavy book and set it aside to dry completely flat.
  • Once it was dry I adhered the panel to a black card base.

  • To the inside I finished it with the Thank You stamp from the Thank You So Much stamp set.

I hope this card has inspired you today just as Jennifer McGuire has inspired me with this creation.
