Stitched Bouquet

Hey everyone - it's been gloomy and rainy here but yesterday I received a package from my sister Tami that really made me smile. Hope you will smile seeing the card I created with one of her gifts!

Supplies: Paper - Gina K Sea Glass & Tranquil Teal cardstock; 
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb 
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 (retired);
Stamp - Hero Arts CM128 Color Layering Water Lilies (sentiment)
Other - Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink; Copic Markers B0000, C1 & C00

In the package, Tami sent a bunch of stitched panels she made using her sewing machine. I took one of them and diecut it with a stitched rectangle. Matted everything and added to an A2 card formed from the Gina K teal. I added some light shading to the base of the jar and to the jar's interior using Copics.

Di invited me to add a card to her current Pixies' Snippets Playground challenge so I'm adding this card there. The snippet is the sentiment circle. I have a lot of scraps laying around - I always figure I can squeeze something out of it! And yes, I was able to squeeze a little circle out of a white scrap - yay!! Don't worry, Di - I'll make something with more creative snippets later. 😊😊😊

Tami made me a card this winter that had some stitched flowers on it and I loved it. She included some stamping right on the stitched panel which I thought was brave since she doesn't own a MISTI. She also added some gems to her flowers. Here's the card she sent me:

Tami wondered if I wanted some panels to play with and I quickly said yes, yes, yes!! I still have a lovely pile of different stitched designs to use on future cards. Thanks Tami!! Tami is an avid quilter and has made me a couple gorgeous quilts. You can see my fave here if you missed it.

That's it for today, friends! Thanks for stopping and have a crafty week!!
