OSAAT Challenge #118: Stitch It!

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want to encourage you to use one of your digi stamps from a StitchyBear Store designer, so the theme is "Use a Stitchy Bear Store Digi and/or Stitching (real or faux)"!

I used In the Pumpkin Patch by Delicious Doodles:


This was quite a challenge for me, coloring-wise. Plus, I only have 2 oranges and the lighter one was one its last legs...Guess it's time to order those refills!I hand-stitched the border on the image, but the orange/white border on the card was done on my machine.

I found this fun, hand-made-type paper at Michaels, and although it's highly textured it heat-embossed quite well (with the help of my Embossing Buddy!). I heat-embossed the netting stamp (Rogue Redhead Designs) in black and the sentiment (Fiskars) in shiny green.

I wanted to make a special embellishment, so I used the Woven Patch tutorial by Karen Barbé that I saw recently on Pinterest. Try it, do!

Hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time for our "Use a Stitchy Bear Store Digi and/or Stitching" challenge. For entries using a StitchyBear Store product (be sure to add a # after your name when entering), your could win this month's StitchyBear Designer Collaboration set. You're welcome to enter the challenge using different products, but will instead be entered into the draw to win a $3 coupon to StitchyBear. Can't wait to see your projects!
