Simply Stampin Challenge Theme Week!

Good morning stampers,

This week over at Simply Stampin' it's time for another theme week challenge so we are challenging you to
Faux or Sew! 
That's right we want to see stitching on your projects so whether you want to faux sew, hand sew or get your sewing machine out it's up to you!

For my card I decided to combine faux sewing with hand sewing, here's it is, 

It's another Christmas offering from me, I started with a Night of navy base, and layered with Soft Suede, and Marina Mist, I like to paper pierce holes when I faux stitch I always think this gives you a more real stitched look, so around the edge is my faux stitching with my Night of Navy marker pen. I stamped the background with my Serene snowflakes, in Soft suede, then wrapped some retiring satin Marina mist ribbon around before cutting a Top Note with my Big shot machine and embossing with the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder, I inked the edges with Night of navy, next I stamped the mug, steam and gingerbread man from Scentsational Season, I hand stitched over the snowflake design on the mugs, if you look closely hopefully you'll be able to see it!!
And finished the whole thing off with a sentiment from the Contempo Christmas set.

I hope you'll enjoy stitching along with us this week and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's offerings for even more inspiration!

Happy stampin', xx

Wow Kelly, what a wonderful card! I love your faux stitching and the actual stitching on the mugs is such a sweet touch! Great colours too!

How adorable! I feel a bit sorry for that ginger bread man though, although at least he has warm feet! ;)

The colours are great, they work so well together. We really ought to treat ourselves to sewing machines! We said this last year didn't we! ;)
