I enjoy crafting- stamping, sewing, embroidery and jewelry making! I am a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I love sharing what I love! I blog about my favorite stamp sets & techniques. I have an online store at http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx
I have an Etsy shop online (link is here). All prices reflect material used and time spent constructing. You may notice that one card may cost more than another- likely because one had more materials put into it than the other.
As I mentioned earlier, I have been interested in getting into a new line of embroidery: embroidered jewelry. I have settings for pins/brooches and necklaces. I am shopping around for ring settings :) Here is the first of the new line. Peach colored rose ring! Keep an eye out for more pieces to roll off of my coffee table :) I invite your comments! ~Anne
Using 956 pink, thread two plies of embroidery floss on an embroidery needle. Bring it up as near to the knot (at the blue dot in the picture). Form a loop and hold it in place with your finger or a second needle.Pull the needle through the linen to form a petal - shaped loop. Holding the loop with your finger, place the needle as close as you can to where you brought the needle up. Bring the needle through to the back of the linen. You've formed a lazy daisy stitch, perfect for flowers, chains and borders!
Can't sleep tonight and wish to be productive. Go grab your sewing supplies and lets make a tulip bookmark!
The tulip flower is stitched with a straight stitch and ribbon stitches. I find it best to choose about three different colors - even if the pinks are slightly different, it will look nice.
Set up about three different straight stitches with a good green floss. The first tulip (the left most one) is created with three stitches. Place two ribbon stitches very close together and leave some slack so that they create that nice curl. Pull up the last stitch at the center of the flower and place it over the top, between the two ribbon stitches. The second tulip (in red) is created with a single straight stitch! These will look great as buds. The third flower (in pink) was created in the same manner as the first flower- two close placed ribbon stitches. You can use variations of this technique for a beautiful, natural look!
I am interested in any Spring Treasuries that you have made or have been featured in. It would be great if they were needle work, but it doesn't have to be exclusive! Please comment with a link, I'd like to promote them on Twitter.
