Simple Stitched Stems with Michelle Leone


This week's MIM at PapertreyInk features Michelle Leone, and her very first
video tutorial, Simple Stitched Stems.
Michelle's addition of a bit of handwork gives a personal touch to a card.


Some of you know I lost my mom in February. I know many other special moms, including 
daughters, daughters In Law, aunts and friend-moms to give a MD card to.
My stitched stems were made easy with a PTI die set called Stitching Lines.


Bigger Blooms supplied my flowers and Shape Shifters: Oval provided the frame and leaves for 
my posies.


I loved doing a bit of sewing on my card, and did one more while the stamps and dies
were handy.


For these leaves, I used my copics. I made the dots with Viva Glass Effect Gel in Blackberry.

  2. Love both your cards, Nancy! What a great idea to do some stitching over the Shape Shifters Oval die. I did not purchase that one, but guess I should have now in retrospect. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

And of course your stitching is perfect!! Love the bright colors on your 2nd card too and dang it Nancy...didn't think I needed that Shape Shifter: Oval die, but now of course after seeing both these cards I think it NEEDS to go in my shopping cart!!

  7. Both cards are lovely Nancy. I really like the red and kraft together, a good card for someone who doesn't like things too "frilly".

  10. Nancy, thanks for the inspiration to pull out my new Shape Shifters Die and use it. Both of your cards with their stitched stems are lovely. Great reminder to pair up Kraft and Pure Poppy like you did. Your second card is so bright and cheery it looks like Spring. Somehow I missed your sad news of your loss in February, Nancy, and I am so very sorry. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
