SOS #125 - Stitching

Happy Tuesday. Are you ready for another Shopping Our Stash challenge? This week we ask you to use stitching on your project. It can be faux stitching or real.

Here's my project:

I had another idea, but it morphed into something completely different. I was going to faux stitch around the edge of the hexagon circle, but instead I decided to pop it up on dimensional adhesive and faux stitch around the outside edge.

The paper for the top layer and the circle were from The Heaplet, as I've packed my other papers. First I die-cut the hexagon circle out of white, then die-cut the solid circle from the patterned paper. I glued them together, then put back only a few of the die-cut parts-is-parts.

When I went looking for my next layer, I had A Moment and realized I could just turn over the piece I'd used to cut the solid circle. That's one less piece of paper in The Heaplet. Whoot! The paper was less than 5 1/4" long, so I trimmed the base to fit.

When I added the banner for the sentiment, I thought it looked weird, so I put some white faux stitching on it to make it look more like it belonged, and not so floaty.

In another Moment, I added some wooden hexagon pieces. I didn't even bother to color them, as I thought they looked nice in their natural veneered state.

Okay, now it's your turn! Go into your stash and make something using real or faux stitching, then come back to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!


  1. the "extra" wooden hex pieces are my favorite part, tho really i love EVERYTHING about this! the heaplet is kind and bountiful, and the MOMENTS were plenteous of inspiration! gotta love THAT!!! ♥

  2. That's a pretty cool card and your stitching is perfect.

  3. I can't believe you made so many creative cards while in the midst of packing! This card is another super example!

  4. Leslie, This card is very nice. I love the dimension here and I also really like the cut on one end of your sentiment piece. the stitching is nice and even, unlike mine most of the time.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. oooo i like this! the veneers look great

  6. I'm so fond of the capitalization of A Moment. Some of them really do require capital letters.

  7. You were so creative with this card! I love that you put some of the hexagons back in their spots and the extra hexagons floating around look great! This is such a super card!!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
