Clean & Simple Stitching


Today's CAS challenge #26 at SCS is to use stitching on your card.  My first one was done late, late last night(too much caffeine at dinner)---not much imagination here:


Stella Ruby paper, some twill stamped with Chocolate Chip craft ink and a button; stitched around the edge of a Sahara Sand card.  After I woke up this morning and had some more caffeine, I thought of another one, this time again using the colors of Mellow Moss, So Saffron and Bravo Burgundy that Stacey selected for her Act 2 Curtain Call.  This will be for a sweet Scottish lady in my church whose birthday is coming up:


Stitching paper to paper is MUCH easier than fabric to paper!  But I still like the look of this CAS card!  Thanks for visiting today!

  • Stamps:  Short & Sweet, Vintage Picnic Sentiments, PTI
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Sahara Sand, So Saffron
  • Ink:  Chocolate Chip Craft, Bravo Burgundy
  • Acc:  Twill, Fabric, Buttons from my stash, Flower Layers 3 Die Cut, Sewing Machine, Dauber, Twine


  1. Never got round to using sewing on a card, but it does look fabby dont it? maybe i too need some caffeine?

  2. So gorgeous!! I love the way you've done this card LeAnne! :)

  4. Wow! I'm impressed with your stitched cards, LeAnne! Not sure if I'm brave enough to try that yet:) Thanks so much for playing the Curtain Call Act 2!

  5. Thank you LeAnne! And ALL of your cards are SO wonderful too!!! I give some from your stamps to Alex because she wishes to do cardmaking club to Siberia too.

  10. 2 great cards again! I wanted to do some sewing for that challenge, but I couldn't push myself to drag that dusty machine out of the mothballs! LOL I may have to force myself to do that now since you showcased your great sewing on these pretty cards! TF the inspiration!

  11. The first card is fine, I love the patterned paper you chose. That second card is WOW! so clean and so perfect.
    I hope I can find time to work in that CAS challenge.
