I wanted to take the opportunity to play along at the fab Twofer Challenge before it closes. The theme this time is hearts and I used a lovely cross stitch heart die from Waffle Flower on my cards - to make a mother's day and hello card.
I rotated the heart die to create a flower on this card:
My second card is a CAS mother's day design which includes a sentiment from Visible Image.
I shall also link this card up at Time Out where the theme is hobbies. Cross stitch is a hobby that I have dabbled in over the years but I often lose patience with it!
Thanks for stopping by :)
Wow! What great cards! Wonderful designs...Like you I was a cross stitcher for many years. I wish I could still do it...these cards brought back many happy memories for me.ReplyDelete
I adore how you used the quilt cover for flower, this is such a clever design. Great to see you at Time OutReplyDelete
Sweet cards Sarah. So clever to use the heart die to create petals of a flower, and your mother card is just beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Twofer Card Challenge.ReplyDelete
That die is a keeper, you have used it for two lovely cards.ReplyDelete
These really grab my cross-stitch loving heart, Sarah! I did quite a lot of it before I got into card-making and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I'm NOT good at multi-tasking and can only concentrate on one hobby at a time, so no more needlework for me! This is such a great stamp; it makes it look like you really did cross-stitch on your cards! I love both of your separate occasion designs!! Thank you so much for playing along in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
I love the way you turned the heart into a flower, Sarah. Cross stitch is another of the hobbies I played around with at one time. I got bored and the old eyesight became a problem so I gave it up.ReplyDelete
That is one cute heart die! Love how you created the flower from it. Two fabulous cards!ReplyDelete
Two stunning cards! I love the creative way you used the die to create a large flower. The mother's day card is so beautiful in it's simplicity, I love the CAS look and that die just really is a stunner. Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT!ReplyDelete
