New Stitching Stencil from Ann's Paper Art

New Stitching Stencils by Ann's Paper Art.
They will be available in the webshop from April.
They are so very simple to use with most die cutting machines.
Lovely clean cut and ready to stitch within minutes.
Fantastic quality and a great price.

I have combined the new butterfly stencil with a Marianne design DS0915 embossing and cutting folder.
Small Nellie Snellen floral  flowers are amongst the stitching.

This beautiful stitching stencil has many components.
I have removed the centre of the card with one of the die cuts that comes in the package.
Which I then placed a piece of embossed card behind using the Nellie Snellen  HSF008 embossing folder.
The corners have been die cut also with Nellie Snellen  mfd027.
Le Suh butterfly decoupage fits perfectly in the centre.

This beautiful circle stitching die also comes with many components.
I have chosen to use the large circle die, it also comes with a beautiful rose die in the centre.
I will show you a card with the rose later.
The beauty of this stitching die is that you are able to cut out the circle around the outer edge of the stitching die.
  If you like you can also cut a circle out in the centre of the card where I have the decoupage.
The corner die is by Joy! 6002/0148.

I will be showing you more cards from this wonderful new collection by Ann

Card for Annalie

This month at Ann's Paper Art Forum my exchange card was for Annalie from South  Africa.
The pattern stitched is from Ann's Paper Art pattern number a906 Card Embroidery book 1.
Threads used are by Mettler Polysheen, 6043, 6133, 232, 3641, 3761, 853, 2830, 1220. 
A beautiful round the page punch by Martha Stewart called Cherish sits outside the stitching very nicely.

Birthday Card

I always find it so much more difficult to make a card for a male.
This week I have made one for my son's birthday using pattern a354 from Ann's Paper Art.
Stitching once again I have used Mettler Polysheen 1903 and 821.
I have layered Spellbinder Nestabilities S4-190 
I thought that the decoupage was just perfect.
