This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin’ is a Sewing Challenge. You need to sew (or faux sew) somewhere on your project. This is sew much fun!
I got out my embroidery thread from my long forgotten cross-stitch days. I first stamped the stems of the flowers in Basic Gray. I then used my Paper-Piercing Tool with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (p181 AC) and pierced evenly spaced holes by following the stamped image. I used gray thread to sew through the holes. Just to highlight ‘sewing’ I decided to add a bit extra to the side of the jar with some yellow thread. I again used the Essential Paper-Piercing Pack as a guide to get even spacing.
Here is a closer look:
I absolutely love this new stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue called Perfectly Preserved (p29 HC). This is the first chance I have had to ink it up! I can’t wait to play with it again soon.
I hope you can play along with us this week at the Simply Stampin’ blog site.
