Video: Stamping Simple Stitched Vines

Good morning!  Today I'll show you how you can create your own custom vines, like I did on the Jelly Bean Green card earlier this week (thanks for all your comments!) with the stitched elements in my Triple Play Holiday stamp set. This time in some Christmas colors! The clear stitched border is flexible and allows for bending it in the configuration you need for your design, and the included images add beautiful detail, color and balance to your layouts.  This is a 5 minute card, but dding a simple drop shadow with a marker (1 minute!) adds so much dimension, you'll have to touch it believe they aren't raised stitches!  These versatile stamps are must have your projects. Don't you love this look? And so fun to design your own. Greeting is from Beth's This & That. Please enjoy!

  1. Melanie thanks for the tutorial, love the embroidery look on this card. I've added this set to my wishlist. Blessings.

  2. I don't know how you would find the time...but I think you must do some embroidery to have made stamps with the pretty stitches. It does look 3D with the drop shadow. Beautiful job on your card and great stamp sets. I love the stitches.

  3. Thanks for the tutorial! I hope to eventually be able to get this set...and the others that go with it! LOVE the embroidery stitching...I used to do that craft too, so love I can stamp it onto cards now! :-))

  4. How do you do it? I mean, every video of yours and Gina's is always spot on. Thanks so much for showing me how to make stitched flowers, which years ago, was one of my favorite things to make. I miss embroidery and cross stitch. Now I can do it much faster and with just as beautiful results!
