Love cards


I made this card for the ABNH facebook page using my favourite set Brush Strokes by Hero Arts. I recently won some really cool dies from Winnie and Walter and wanted to play with them. I cut out the panel and the holes for the cross stitches with them. I had an idea to make a whole card front by making holes and sewing a pattern on it but I chickened out thinking I would get the last row crooked and that would bug me. I'll do that another day when I have some more time. This was fun too! 


I also made this card experimenting with Fab Foil from WOW, I tried to get it stuch using Stick-it but since Stick-it doesn't become permanent until after a few hours this did not work as well as I hoped. It looks a bit uneven but I think that's cool too. But not the best combination. I know Stick-it works with the gold flakes from Indigo Blue and I have those at home too but I haven't found a good container for them yet and will not open the jar until I do. I know they grow and are impossible to get back in the jar ;)


This is what the foil looks like on Stick-it, kinda cool actually. Next I try it with bonding powder and a laminator. Experimenting is fun! 

Thanks for visiting, I hope to be back soon :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
