Antoinette in Stitches!



Well, it's Saturday, so time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. This week it's time to Stitch it Up!! Use any kind of stitching on your card, either real or faux. I love to sew on my cards, so this was fun. Niki is the hostess for this challenge and since she is using Oliver on her card, this is the stamp you have a chance to win this week. Oliver is such fun to use and so very cute, who wouldn't want to add him to their collection!

I used Antoinette from the November Release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I love this stamp, when I look at her face, it makes me think of joy. She just seems to be so full of joy she can't keep it all inside. What a wonderful way to feel!!

I used Whisper White for the base and matted the snowflake paper on Lavender Lace. I used my square Scalloped Nesties for both Antoinette and the frame, which is Almost Amethyst. I used Brocade Blue for the bottom strip, on which I stamped the snowflakes with white craft ink, then heat embossed them with white EP. The snowflake is the accessory stamp that comes with Antoinette. I stitched around all the borders with a matching mauve thread and finished off the image with some Dewdrops and some Waterfall Stickles on the dress hem and bobbles.

Well, I hope you have fun making your stitched or faux stitched cards, can't wait to check them all out.


Have a great weekend,


Blessings,


Diana
