Stitched Triggers

I've not played along with the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World in a while but this week's trigger image really shouted at me and I went straight on and made a quick little card perfect for this time of year.

The blue die cut tag is from an spellbinders set that is exclusive to Waltzingmouse stamps  (it has matching stamps too "wink") and I simply added a cream panel to the centre by drawing around the inside and fussy cutting it out.  The reason this trigger image spoke to me so loudly was that I knew I had an as yet uninked cross-stitch style alphabet stamp set - so I used the letters to spell out love instead of stamping a heart (there is one of those in this stamp set too - it's by marianne designs)  I finished with some hand drawn stitching around the edge of the cream panel, added a little paper rose and used some pink floral washi tape to add interest to the background.

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:


  1. Just love the stitch effect on your card Tara, pretty colours


  2. so gorgeous, love the cross stitched effect lettering!
    Many thanks for joining in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week!

  3. Love the cross stitched alphabet - pretty take on the TT! Just an FYI Tara, your link from Moxie Fab World doesn't take you to this post :)

  4. Hey Tara! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
