I have lots to share today… this is post no. 2!

Let’s get to the the FINAL TWIST for the Hippity Hop Twist Challenge.
Get out some thread because we are doing some HAND STITCHING!

I was really excited for this twist.

Normally, I do machine or faux stitching (which I included in this card too).  I immediately knew I wanted to use the flourish stamp from Love in Return.  Isn’t it cute with the little bit of hand stitching added in?  I stamped my image, used my paper piercer to create the holes for the embroidery floss and then I went to grab my needle… where is my needle???  ACK.  I lost my needle.  Now what to do?

I had to improvise and use the needle threader that was at the tip of my paper piercer.  Ha!  It probably took me 20 times as long to sew this without my needle.

Lisa H. is up next to continue on with the Ippity hop!!!

BUT, I have more to share!!!

  1. Major stitching skills here Lisa and I love how you did it too!
    Your card is absolutely fabulous and those sweet little birdies are so sweet, along with the white pen stitching!

  2. Lisa even though it wasn’t simple to do, I love the clean simple lines of this! It is Beautiful!
    I hope that your week is starting off wonderful! I know you have busy creating! Thank you for all the inspiration.

    Blessings and Hugs,

  3. Very cute! If your paper piercer with a needle threader at one end is like mine, you can unscrew the needle threader end and find a few needles inside. I remember discovering that by accident! I think mine was made by Making Memories. Good luck!

  4. ooooo, this stamp was perfect for handstitching. loooove the look you created here. perfect!

  5. That stitching looks great — and I’m impressed that you persevered with the needle threader, yikes! Worth it, though, for the finished creation. Love the little birds, too.

  6. super cute – I love to stitch on my cards but I usually use my machine – this will be a challenge!!

  7. Well, the stitching was well worth the effort–this is beautiful! Great way to use the flourish stamp!

  8. Ohh…I just LOVE this Lisa, fabulous stamp to pick out for stitching….and I am so sorry it took you so long, hope you didn’t have to curse me for picking this challenge..LOL…it sure was worth it though, as it’s GORGEOUS!!!

  9. Like your stitching on your card. It gives it a nice pop — I think I’ll try some on my Easter cards.
