Jingle Belles : Let It Sew, Let It sew, Let It Sew!

Good day y'all! Hope you're having a great one!!! Do you like to sew on your scrapbooking/ cardmaking projects? Well  if you do, then Jingle Belles has the perfect challenge for you this week! Let it Sew is this week's theme....  so dust off your sewing machine, rubons or faux stitching , and if you're feeling really courageous , try some hand stitching!!! Once again the Belles have some stunning samples for us! I really like the faux stitching on Stef's card .... it looks so realistic and Lauren must have oodles and oodles of patience to handcrank her sewing machine around each letter!!!
I love to add a little ( or alot!) of stitching to my projects ..... it's about the only time my sewing machine gets used anymore!!!
This cute little gal is a digi stamp I bought at TiddlyInk . I colored her with my WonderColor Crayons.I used Stickles for the hat and drress trim.the sparkles never show well in pics!! :(   For my stitching , I sewed the ribbon on to the front and I stitched the buttons together!!!
I got the idea for this variation of the side step-card from this week's tutorial at SplitcoastStampers.
The DP are leftover's from my SU Christmas stash.
Anyhoo... that's my card for this week's JB.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I saw that tutorial in my email and I want to try it. YOU already executed it perfectly. This is magnificent! I admire the detail, especially the stitched ribbon, buttons, and the fussy cut sentiment.

    p.s. thanks for entering in my blog candy; I am terrified of heights too, but I love flying and always get a window seat :)

  2. oooooooh! that "side-step" design is VERY cool, miss candy, and i love that stamp as well! actually, i love EVERYTHING about this fabulous festive card!!! <3

  3. Love all of the wonderful glittery and that scrunched ribbon ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.

  4. Lovely card. I love the side-step design and the colors are fantastic.
