Jacksonbelle Tuesday – Stitch It Up!

(Of course to the tune of Lick-it Up by Kiss! – OMGosh! I saw the video on VH1 Metal Mania – I nearly died from laughter! It was horrible – good song….BAD video!!)

Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge – Stitch it Up! Lindsey loved stitching on cards – faux or real…so she challenged us to stitch it up!  (Remember to sing that to the tune of Lick It Up… Stitch it up, stitch it up, oh yeah, ooohh! ) Be sure to play along (while you sing along) and if you upload to Splitcoast be sure to use the keyword JBE037 so we can find it!

I was thrilled for an excuse to pull out my favorite Daisy D rub-on tape stitches for this job!   I love this stuff!  Much easier to use than a sewing machine and it looks great!  I used a zig-zag pattern and the Victorian stitch.

I was thrilled to finally be able to use this Nesties die – I love the shape and I think it works perfectly for the Basic Grey butterfly.   I used my SU markers for the stamped image.  It wasn’t a perfect stamped impression so I used the markers again once it was stamped on the paper to color it in just a bit better.  Then I blasted it with ShimmerzBlingz Hottie Pink.  For the yellow/green color I used a Martha Stewart Glitter Pen. 

The white dots were created with a white gel pen and all of the stitching is Daisy D’s as mentioned above.  I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper and buttons – I am completely in LOVE with this collection! I added some MAMBI bling for a bit of extra pop!  The ribbon is May Arts of course!

Please take a few minutes to check out the other ways to Stitch It Up!
