August Kit Club Challenge

Hi there!

I am a member of the Premium  Kit Club over at ScrapMuch? 
- you should check out there kits!!! 
The kit for August is so fun...I love all the summer pastel colours, 
in my stash, I found some retro 70's pictures 
that just complimented everything the kit had to offer.
This month I was privileged to a private invitation to scrap with my friend Elaine
this is what I came up with.
the sky's the limit

I just love this collection, and that I added some stitching, a button and pearl bling!!

Thank you for stopping by

My technique is featured !! over at ScrapMuch?

Stamped Stitching Template - Tutorial Wednesday
Hi there!

Happy hump day!  We have a special treat for you today, our tip comes form our sweet customer and friend, Danie!

I will let her do the honours of describing the how to's!  This is what she says.....

"I have been playing with my heating tool, VersaMark watermark stamp pad and stamps.

 I accidentally discovered an easy way to stencil for adding some stitching to your card or layout.

 Here I used my monogram R stamp with VersaMark watermark stamp pad and stamped it onto my doily cut circle.

Reveal the stamp mark.

Heat to dry to "watermark"

Secure to self-healing mat and Pierce using your craft pick.

 After you have pierced the shape/letter, Start stitching.  I also added some bling....

and ta-da!!
a personalized card for my very dear friend."

 Thank you Danie for sharing this technique with us, it is a great idea... any stamp you own can become a stitching template!

One further hint, if you do not own a heat gun and or VersaMark, you can always stamp the image in an ink colour that is a light version of your stitching colour.

Have a great day everyone!  And if you have a technique you would like to share, email me at, we would love to post it here!

Your friends at ScrapMuch?!

and THANK YOU ScrapMuch!
