Stitched All Around Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for the March SU! Colour Challenge. You can find out more about these Colour Challenges, see other entries or join in on their Facebook page. This month the colour combination is: Balmy Blue, Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock – wow! Balmy Blue is a bit of a curve ball in there!

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial!

Here is the project that I created…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Cajun Craze cardstock and the main card front is a slightly smaller layer of Sahara Sand cardstock. I have stamped images from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Stamp Set onto the card front in Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze ink. I have also used Stampin’ Write Markers in those two colours to create the ‘splatter’ effect.

To incorporate the Balmy Blue I cut out a piece of 6×6″ DSP using the Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On top of this I added a length of Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon which I adhered using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I really enjoy taking part in these creative challenges. If you struggle for inspiration that can provide a wonderful kick-start so why not join in?
