CAS26 Stitching

I got so excited last night when I checked on CAS26 and discovered it was stitching but had NO IDEA what I would do except use my Paper Salon stitch stamp set. I perused my stamp index notebook to see what popped out at me and stumbled across Quilter's Sampler by PTI and had an AHA! moment. Here's the result.

It's wonderfully straightforward. I used the wavy double line to hint at a nice, healthy, steady heart beat on a monitor. The button is there 'cause it's pretty. The sentiment was stamped twice and masked for the two colors, but really, I could have colored with both colors and stamped once because I used dew drop pads, which are so easy to control.

Thanks, Jen, for a great challenge. I'm totally not done with it yet....

  4. I find everything you do so utterly wonderful... this comment is for everything I've seen here today -- fabulous!! Sometimes I wonder why I do what I do when I'm so enchanted by what YOU do... scratching my head...

  5. what a great card!! Perfect for the CAS challenge. And thanks for the hint about the card I have posted on my blog (journey - engagement) but I have my CAS#26 stitching cards in progress, just not enough time to get them finished. Maybe tomorrow :D
