Stitch-a Card Pre-Pricked Card Toppers

 Available Now, Ann has designed some new Pre-Pricked Card Toppers, for those that have problems pricking the patterns but love embroidery on card, these toppers are a must have, you can buy these toppers at Ann's Paper Art Webshop, here are two that I have made, the first one is  Stitch-A Card Number a810, the decoupage is from Studio Light Die Cut Sheet No 220. The second card is Stitch-A Card Number a703, for this one I have used my Nellie Snellon Reindeer Die NSD035 dear,
and  my Nellie Snellon Die No MFD028 2-Borders-3, I have added Hobbydots to the border and on the Deers eyes, I have also added my Christmas Card Candy to the corners. I am having fun with these patterns and will add more as I make them.

Snowman Card

I thought it was time I got started on my Christmas Cards, I did make some earlier in the year but it came to a standstill, so now I have to get my finger out and get them made.
I bought a new Embossing folder from Ann's Paper Art,  the Embossing folder is from Nellie Snellen EFE 016 Christmas Squares-2, it embosses beautifully, I have stitched Ann's Paper Art Pattern No a659 available from Ann's Webshop, I used water colour pencils on the embossed frame, the image is from the sheet Yvonne Creations CD10217, I finished off with a peel-off Christmas sentiment and added some stars and gems.

Sympathy Cards

It has been very unfortunate that I have found myself making so many sympathy cards these past six weeks for friends, below are two of the cards I have made. The first one I made yesterday for my neighbour who lost her dear husband early yesterday morning, I have stitched an old pattern from Emelie's Design, the  second one is for a very dear friend, I stitched a pattern from the book Embroidery on paper for every occasion by Joke and Adriaan de Vette, the rose on the card is from a different pattern in the same book.

Birthday Card

Here is the Birthday card I made for Ann, I stitched pattern No a655, I have used Gutermann thread No's 1234 Black, 1104 Green, 567 Gold and 1254 Purple, I die cut the card using Marianne Design Creatables Die No LR0269 , I also inked the design using Tim Holtz distress ink pad shaded lilac then added a gold ribbon and some gold gems.
