Stitching on Cards using Lawn Fawn Embroidery Hoop and Free Pattern

Hi my friends! If you think I’m done with stitching, I want to assure you I’m not! I love stitching on felt but also on cards and on cards was how I got started with this hobby. It’s therapeutic, relaxing and it makes me feel close to yarning which is where my creative journey began.

So, I purchased Lawn Fawn’s embroidery hoop die set awhile ago and just hadn’t gotten around to playing with it. It’s fun that they have free patterns you can download to stitch on these hoops. Today’s card features the bee and I decided to pair it with Simon Says Stamp’s stamp set, “BEE Yourself”.

You can grab Lawn Fawn’s pattern along with other patterns for this die set here. I matched the floss colors as closely as I could from my stash. I used a tapestry needle to do my stitching but you can use whatever needle you’re most comfortable with. My stitches aren’t great cause I’m still learning but I’m proud I stuck with this. I stitched with 4 strands, I might want to try 2 or 3 strands if I make this card again.

After I was done with my stitching, I went to work on the extra bees, so I stamped them first with Memento Tuxedo black ink, my favorite ink for copic coloring. I decided to use 4 of the bees from the stamp set. I colored them with Copic markers (#Y13, #Y18 – yellow; #100 -black; #YR18 – nose and #RV14 cheeks). I don’t think there’s a coordinating die set for this stamp set so I die cut them with my Brother Scan ‘N Cut. They cut out beautifully.

I set them aside and worked on my cardbase and panel. I decided to do a side-fold landscape cardbase, just something different. I used Paper Rose “Embroidery” pattern paper pack cause I thought these would go nicely with the theme.

I also trimmed my pattern papers with some zig zag scissors from my stash to give it a decorative edging. I stamped my sentiment with Waffleflower Crafts “Stitched Sentiments” stamp set with Simon’s “Khaki” ink pad to tie in the brown color. On the embroidery hoop, I did some ink blending with Distress Traditional “Vintage Photo” ink pad for a rustic look. I then played with placement for awhile until I could fit that sentiment on the card.
