Stitches & Scrolls

~Stitched Flowers & Stitched Sentiments~

I looooove both of the stamp sets I am featuring today, especially because both feature stitched elements!

First up, a lovely set designed by Nina B, Stitched Sentiments

I have a feeling these will become my new 'regularly used' stamp set!

Here is my card:


Lately, I've been so busy, and a lot of the friends that I normally see rather frequently, I feel I've really neglected. Not only do I feel like an awful friend for doing so, but I genuinely miss the fun times and our visits...Not being able to have time for visiting has been somewhat of an adjustment for me.

I know my friends are all so understanding, but I can't help to feel that a little 'thinking of you' or 'miss you' note might be just the thing to tie things over until we can get back to our usual :)

It was so perfect when I saw the lovely Stitched Sentiments, and the 'miss you so much' note.
It had my hamster wheel turning right away!


For this card, I used a few layers of soft paper, and stamped the sentiment in black so that it would stand out
against the subtle background.

I really love the font in this stamp set and all the other sweet sentiments. I also think that the size of the sentiments is perfect for card making. Not too little, not too big. Just perfect!
This set is definitely a keeper & is going in my fave pile!


I finished off the card with some chevron striped tape at the top and bottom, to tie in the yellow accents.

Next up, another gorgeous stamp feature by Nina B, Stitched Flowers. Here is my creation


For this card, I incorporated the stitched flower just underneath the fluffy Prima flower. I also added a sentiment from the Oh Deer stamp set. 


I love that this set comes with plenty of options for stitched flowers. Whether you keep them the way the are, or cut the flowers from the stems, you have so many options for larger and smaller flowers. 
I am excited to try the flowers in some of my scrapbook layouts, where I can create layers upon layers of stitched flowers. 

The other super awesome thing that I love about these flowers, is their button centers!!! You can't see it in the picture above, but if you check the stamp set out here, you will see all the button gloriousness! 
How cute!


So that is it for today friends.
I am back again tomorrow with more!

See you then!

  2. *sigh* there's something so dreamy about your creations, Ivana!
    I too have been super busy and feel like I need to send some cards out to friends I've neglected (unintentionally of course!)
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    Hugs!
