Group 1: Stich it up

Thank you for stopping by House of Cards Challenge Blog today!  Sue T. here with a little something to get your creativity flowing!

Today I am going to show you a quick and easy faux stitching tutorial with items that might be found in the back of your crafting closet.


For this technique you need a serrated tracing wheel and a ruler. Using the ruler I created a serrated pattern on my base card. I chose a simple diamond  pattern to start with.


I covered the entire card with the pattern. This gives the card a quilted quality.


Using my MISTI I stamped my background stamp and the ink doesn't take the ink so the card looks like a piece of stitched fabric. So dig out your tracing wheel and try this fun faux stitching technique!

Group1 is also sharing their creations with you today for our current challenge!  Take a peek at what they've got for you...
