Stamp a Faire 2015 – Pins & Needles Challenge



Create a project featuring a stick pin.  Incorporate some of the tips that Melissa mentioned throughout her video!

I really liked making this one.  I was channeling my inner Melissa Phillips!  I really liked how my ribbon came out.  I used seam tape and made my own ribbon by using distress inks and water.   I tried to make the color the same as different apples and I think it worked.

Your challenge is to incorporate machine stitching into a project. We’d love to see you use metallic thread if you have some! Don’t let this intimidate you if you’ve never done it before!  Just follow along with Amy’s tips and have fun getting crafty!

I have always wanted to pull out this die set from Papertrey Ink and when I saw the stitching I thought it was perfect for this challenge.    However my poor (and very expensive) sewing machine is giving me issues.  I was able to reset and reset the machine to get this card done.   The machine is headed off to the repair shop!     The nice thing about this stitching project was using some of my pretty thread.   This sulky thread was autumn colors and I thought would look nice on the card.
