Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

Today on WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS we have quick, easy and fun technique to share with you to add texture and dimension to your projects.  Be sure to check out Amy’s Instagram later today, too, where she’ll have a quick how to video on how she did this darling card!

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy Sheffer with this week’s Wednesday in the Works. Today I’m sharing a creative stitching idea using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts and some embroidery floss. I’ve had this idea in my head for two months, so I’m excited to finally share!

What I’ve done is to create the look of preschool/kindergarten writing paper using stitched lines. I used one of the Edge Essentials dies to cut three rows of holes along the bottom of a card stock panel. Then, using a combination of blue and red embroidery floss, I stitched the lines. I used a running stitch, which is basically up one hole, down the next, and so on.

The running stitch gives you the dashed line that you see on the middle line. For the top and bottom lines, I stitched the length of the card, then reversed direction to fill in all the open stitches. All that was left was to stamp and die-cut two apples from All Apples and adhere them to the bottom right corner.

Everything is mounted onto a white card base for a clean and simple look. Thanks for joining me today! I hope you’re inspired to look at all the different ways you can use your Confetti Cuts dies!
