Hi Roadies! Kimberly here today to share how I have used the fantastic Vintage Wood Stitched Charms. The look of stitching is becoming very trendy and these embellishments make it a lot of fun to add a touch of stitching on your projects!
For my first card, I stitched the outline of the heart from Vintage Wood Stitched Heart and Arrow charms. I used basic cross stitch thread and a straight stitch. Simple and effective and for this girl who doesn't sew!
And to spell out I love you, I used the Matthew Lowercase Chipboard alphabet. Maya Road chipboard has long been my favorite. The best surface for any type of treatment. I painted these letters red with acyrlic paint.
And now for a totally different look with a flower. Vintage Wood Stitched Scallop and Circle Charms have this wood flower in the set. I again used basic cross stitch thread, but this time, did traditional cross stitch. (Yeah, I can sew and cross stitch, I just prefer paper and stamps. :) My mom tried.)
I love the look of this wood charm all covered in stitches!
One last touch, I unrolled some Paper Twine Cording and die cut it with a leaf die template. Such a fun way to use the paper cording!
thanks for stopping by!
