Bella Blvd. Cards on Thursday

Hello!

Today's a great day to stop by this ol' blog because I have four cards to share with you! I think that's a record! Today is Bella Blvd's Cards on Thursday so there are even more cards on the Bella Blvd blog.


For this first card I felt like playing with some Designer Tape.


I used some Ciao Chip Alphabets as a pattern for my stitched sentiment.


Most times I use a single strand of thread, but I doubled up here for a more pronounced look.


A couple more Ciao Chip accents, a Flag and stitched heart were used to dress the card up.




I had so much fun with the Designer Tape on the first card that I thought I'd do another. The Jailbird and Orange Stripe designs are perfect for Halloween. If you look closely, you will see the stitched patterned I created for the background.


These fun little chipboard embellishments are from the oh so spook-tacular Too Cute to Spook collection.




For my third card I have more stripes, this time they're created with patterned paper.


This fabulous new fall line is called Thankful.


Lots of zigzag stitching and some High Five Alphabets for the sentiment.


Some of my favorite cards to make are those that show how to use up your scraps, how to use themed collections for something different and how to mix a match different lines. This card does all three.


 What do you think of the stitched sun rays? I like how they overlap and some clouds and go behind others.

There you go, four completely different themes for today's post. To see the cards my teammates created, click here.

Have a wonderful day!

All so very cute! Is all of your stitching hand stitching or is some machine?

Your cards really shined on Bella Blvd's blog today (no pun intended). I love all you stitching! The sunrays, the subtle white on white stitching on the halloween card and that amazing stitching on the love card (such a great idea to use the chipboard letters as a template--The perfect idea when you don't have the right color). I also really love the angles of your fall card. You rock! :)
