Hobydols Stitching Cards - Sharon Blaxter

  Card 1

I have completed two cards this week from the Hobbydols 65 booklet, these are amazing little booklets with lots of patterns and inspiration.

1.Cut a piece of white card stock 13cm x 13cm.
Using a Cuttlebug, cut out one of the corners using Marianne Creatables LRO215. Run through the Cuttlebug again with a silicon mat to emboss the rose.

2. Photocopy the original pattern from the Hobbydols booklet and attach using removable tape
onto the opposite side of the card you have die cut. Using a fine pricking needle and a pricking mat, prick the complete design.

3.  Complete the stitching in stem stitch as indicated on the pattern using a embroidery needle and Chrissie variegated thread.
Attach gold beads and white beads where indicated on the pattern.
Use sticky tape to adhere the cotton to the back when starting and finishing.

4. Attach this completed stitched topper to card stock cut to 13.5cm x 13.5cm. using double sided tape.

5.  Cut out the 3D decoupage using decoupage scissors adhere the first decoupage to the stitched card with  Zig 2-way-glue.

6.  Using a Cuttlebug and Marianne Creatables LRO223 cut out and adhere to the stitched card with Zig 2-way-glue pen.

7.  Cut the main card stock to 14cm x 28cm, score at 14cm with a bone folder and adhere using double sided tape.

8.  Complete the remaining decoupage pieces with silicon adhesive and tweezers.
When completed add pink jewells as indicated on the pattern and silver sparkle glue to the embossed rose.

                       Your card is now complete.

    Card 2

Follow the same intructions as above
 for the stitching.
The measurements for both cards are the same.

1.  Attach the peel-off stickers around the topper, place the second vertical sticker 4.3cm from the edge.
Place the corner stickers as displayed.

     Negative corner and positive peel-off corner

2.  Cut a small piece of transfer sheet and place on top of one of the negative corners.
Rub with a embossing stylus to adhere the pieces.
Place onto the corner carefully, aligning the pieces, gentle rub again with the embossing stylus.
Pull the transfer sheet away carefully.
The transfer sheet can be used again.

3.  Using a oval glitter sticker place onto a piece of white  card and cut around the outside edge using decoupage scissors.  Lightly chalk with 2 colours of green on the white card stock.
Place plenty of  foam squares under the oval.

4.Cut out 3D Le Suh flowers with decoupage scissors adhere the first decoupage to the oval with Zig 2-way-glue assemble the remaining decoupage with silicone adhesive with the help of tweezers.

5.  When the silicone is dry attach the completed oval to the card.

 Your card is now complete.
