Here's the challenge as stated on Nichole's blog:"This month we challenge you to look at embroidered patterns in a whole new light! Look through your clothes, Pinterest, home decor catalogs or even the inspiration I have provided above and find an embroidered pattern that speaks to you. Using the colors and design of the embroidery, build your own stamped version using your favorite floral stamps or other images. No stitching required!"
I chose this beautiful ribbon-embroidered floral monogrammed pillow as my inspiration.
Using PTI's Turning a New Leaf and Embellished Elegance, I stamped a set of 3 1/2 x 5 note cards for my sister Suzie.
In order keep the shape of the S somewhat uniform on each card, I cut a stencil using the Silhouette Cameo. I used the stencil to trace the letter in pencil. Then I stamped the leaves and followed with the flowers. I like that each card's floral design is a bit different, adding to the handcrafted nature of the card set.
And finally, a card for me!
Thanks so much for including my blog as one of your stops along the hop.
