Embroidery Hoops Gone Wild {Clipart}

7 Mar

I thought it would be fun to make up a little digital stamp of an embroidery hoop that I could stamp anything I wanted on…

Then I got a little crazy and colorized it…

And that’s when things really started to get wild… 🙂

I added some digital fabric and embroidery…

Woohoo!

Do I know how to party or what?!

No stopping me now!

I love it when a simple idea turns into something much more fun than I originally planned!

Merry and Bright – Christmas Card Clip art

7 Nov

I am still playing with ideas for Christmas cards in between Thanksgiving crafting…

Here is my latest candidate…

I started by creating the wreath clip art and added the sentiment…

I printed it out on card stock and cut both the image and the pink ‘doily’ matte out using Spellbinders dies…

I mounted the two together using dimensionals…

Added a little glitter to some of the berries on the wreath…

Then went about putting together a card so I could get an idea of what I might do with it…

I kind of like the non-traditional colors I used…

I tried to keep it simple, letting my pretty wreath take center stage…

This one is definitely in the running for this year’s Christmas cards…

Although I am now out of the pretty striped paper…

What a good excuse to go shopping for new paper! 🙂

And since I was taught to share, I have a Merry and Bright wreath for you too…

You can right click on the image to save it…

Then resize it however you’d like (I printed it at 2.5 inches for my card)…

If you use it, I’d love it if you shared what you do…

It might give me some more ideas on how to use it! 🙂

That’s not how it looked in my Head

20 Mar

So I’ve been working away on an Easter wall hanging…

I had the cutest picture of what it would look like in my head…

But no matter what I did to the thing “in real life” I just couldn’t bring myself to like it!

Have you ever had that feeling with something you were making?

I hope I’m not the only one!

I kept working at it, figuring I’d get to the point where I would be happy with how it came out…

I brought it downstairs last night to show the family…

And was met with uncomfortable silence when I asked what they thought of it…

Not a good sign!

I ripped it all apart BUT I am NOT going to let it win…

There are parts of it that I love, others not so much…

So it’s back to the drawing board…Time for a new, even better, picture in my head!

Since I don’t have this planned masterpiece to share with you today, I’ve been trying to decide what else I have in my stash that might be worth putting out there…

This is what I came up with…

TLOTP-ShowersOfLove

TLOTP-ShowersOfLove_Plain

TLOTP-ShowersOfLove_PlainText

TLOTP-ShowersOfLove_Text

Considering that around my parts we just got another 11 inches of snow that last couple of days, I’d give just about anything for some simple showers!

C’mon Spring, where you at?!

Anyway, I hope you like them…

I thought it might be a great one to do a little paper piecing with…

Hmmmm…might be a nice little side project…

Can you say procrastination?!

Then I promise to head back to work on little Mister Peter Cottontail…

Rascally little bugger that he is!

Enjoy the Party!
