My Sheri Crafts - Sew Simple

Hi and thanks for visiting today! Today begins a fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts with "Sew Simple"! We are adding sewing to our projects. This can be real or faux stitching. I am playing with a sketch from Page Maps. I liked the design with the strips of paper on the background and thought this would add to my sewing theme.
My card is 5" X 6 1/2" white cardstock and is layered with a stitched-look paper from Martha Stewart. Again, I am happy that I was able to incorporate papers from my scrap stash!

Page 65 - Quilt cut 2".
Page 67 - Phrase - From my Heart cut 1".
Martha Stewart Punches
Embossed Pop Up Daisy and Layering Daisy for the large flower
Flower Shower - I added small flowers to the center of the yellow blocks and the green check block on the little quilt....My quick applique!!
Edges of the green background paper are sewn with the sewing machine and Gelly Roll pen for the faux stitches. Quilt is pop-dotted on the card.

Now it is your turn to show off your stitching! Our challenges run for two weeks. Deadline for entry will be midnight CST Sept. 30. We look forward to seeing your projects! Remember a winner is chosen to be the guest designer for the next challenge and "Ooh La La" awards are selected too!


  1. Wow, what a gorgeous card, Glenda! I love your layout and the pretty papers and flower! Absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for entering my blog candy giveaway :)

  4. I love this sewing theme. Your stitching and faux stitching add so much to the card. Great job.

  5. Glenda, this is so bright and cheerful. It almost makes me want to start sewing again. haha
    Love the cuts and the papers you chose.

  6. Glenda, this is just gorgeous! As always. ;) I love the colors you used. So very pretty. I never use those colors, but I'm inspired after seeing how nice they come together and so perfect for a stitching/sewing challenge. You're right...the strips really help show that off.

    Anyways, I'm here because I have an award for you on my blog. It is a few posts down, but be sure to stop on by and pick it up. I love all your work, my friend. You really do an amazing job with everything you work on. :0)

  8. This is fantastic! Your faux stitching is perfect and just adds the perfect look to this card!

    (Glenda - there were some problems with Photobucket and Blogger. I had to resave your project for tomorrow's FCCB challenge, but deleted the original. IF you use the link for your own blog posts, please change to the new one. I should have left the original but wasn't thinking that you might have used that link too. I am SO sorry!!)

  9. What a darling card !!! I love all the papers you used...Im a sucker for a quilt !!
