You popped in on a crafty good post today! I have some Bella Blvd. cards to share with you that include a whole lot of hand stitching.
I love quilts, especially vintage quilts with all the hand stitched fabrics that were often bits and pieces of clothing too worn in places to wear anymore. Quilts that have white backgrounds and colorful blocks of floral prints are so beautiful! Some of the Bella Blvd. Spring Flings & Easter Things patterns remind me of the perfect fabric for quilting.
All this stitching is calls for a sentiment that includes the word 'sew' in it! A few micro mini buttons and a tiny wooden spool wrapped with thread bring the sewing theme home.
Hexagons are very popular right now, they're so fun and versatile.
These hexagons were cut with the Silhouette die cut machine. The buttons are from Jesse James and the spool is from the craft store. The flag was created with a Papertrey thin metal die and the wood dowel is from Wilton...probably for making lollipops.
Birthdays call for colorful festive cards and the Bella Blvd. Making the Team collection with their bright colors and fabulous side-B patterns are ideal for birthday cards! It's always my goal to show how versatile a themed line can be.
I used the Silhouette to create the yellow background design and some Spellbinders thin metal dies for the circles. The rosettes were made using a Tim Holtz die. The blue star brads are from Doodlebug Designs. All papers, letter stickers and red chipboard stars are from Bella Blvd.
Oh what fun I had with the Silhouette! I picked a grid and circle design for this card. I used the outer part of the grid as a template to line these dots up in straight rows and then stitched a line across each row.
Bella Blvd. Sophisticates papers are a must have because they coordinate with almost every Bella Blvd. collection and they also work well on their own. I really like these stripes!
The three chipboard pieces I used are from three different Bella Blvd. Ciao Chip sets which shows how versatile and interchangeable they are.
What do you think of all this stitching and Bella Blvd. goodness? I really enjoy working with Bella Blvd. products!
I'm off to craft up a storm! Looking forward to sharing my next creation!
Have a fantastic, fabulous, wonderfully great day! :)
