Sew What?! - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

September 2018 Close To My Heart 
Technique Blog Hop


Image may contain: 1 person, text

Thanks for hopping over from Catherine Nowak's Blog!  

As you can see, there are some fabulous ideas and a variety of ways of using stitching!  I love our Stitched Thin Cuts and how they are compatible with our basic shape thin cuts

I created a couple fairly simple cards but just love how they turned out!  

This card features our Stitched Ovals and Basic Ovals.  The stamped sentiment is from the Grateful Heart Stamp Set (C1727) and displays our Grateful Heart Paper - one of my favorites! .  I used the masking feature to separate the "Thank You" sentiment. 



This card is featuring our "Hello Pumpkin" paper and using our Stitched Circles and Basic Circles. The stamped sentiment is from our Stamp of the Month - perfect for covering all the upcoming seasons!

Thanks for viewing my blog!  I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment. Now it's time to hop on over to
Valerie Kapsha's blog.  Enjoy!
