I have been stitching for years - making pillows, pictures, little things to sit around, ornaments….you name it. I eventually got tired - not of the stitching, but how many pillows does one person need??!! So, I set it aside. I discovered paper crafting about 5 years ago and have been in love. AND THEN I discovered stitching on paper for cards….swoon….be still my heart. So exciting. I have made many stitched cards but each one takes 3-4 hours.
When The Stamp Market came out with their Hellos and Rainbows dotted stitched dies I knew they were a keeper for me. Jennifer Mcguire is my inspiration for many of these (she is my inspiration for many things in life). I added my own spin and colors.
