Papertrey Ink MIM #318

Make it monday #318: 
'simple stitched stems'

I'm over on the Papertrey Ink Blog with my very first Make It Monday video (....please forgive my nervous bumbling)! Hopefully, you will be inspired to add a bit of simple stitching to your cards! To create this Mother's Day project, I've used a piercing mat/guide that's been in my stash forever, although a piece of fun foam and a ruler would achieve the very same goal. And.... those stems certainly don't need to be straight. A petite, free-form bouquet would be so pretty!

This 'simple stitching' inspired a few more creations:

Love this Pure Poppy/ Green Parakeet color combination with my favorite polka dots!

The Amethyst Allure stripes are so pretty with the Tropical Teal leaves/stitching and Royal Velvet die cut flowers. 

Many thanks for joining me today! I hope that you'll have time to play along with Make It Monday #318......  where there's a $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate up for grabs!!
