I am so excited Jennifer...I bought the die, and the needles...I had the thread and the sequins...and I just finished my first card top!! It took me nearly 5 hours...but I made it a sampler and tried all the stitches and all the embellishment techniques you demonstrated. It was really fun and I am already planning to do some for 4th of July! THANK YOU!!
Jennifer, thank you for sharing this. I just went to joanns craft store and bought the dmc floss. The cashier was asking me what I was doing. I told her about your fabulous video on using floss for your greeting cards. The cashier sounded very interested and she was going to look you up on youtube.
I've cross stitched for years, I've been making cards for a few years now. In the past I've attached my aida stitched pieces onto cards but now I've watched this again (I've watched it at least 4 times) I've bought myself the die & I'm going to give it a go on card. With Christmas coming I want to try a jumper design. Thank you for all your inspiration, & the clear concise way you explain everything!
I’m like everyone else - used to cross stitch for years. About 5 years ago I stitched Rudolph’s face/antlers on brown perforated paper for my Christmas cards - it was such fun. Before I discovered “formal” card making I made my Christmas cards. I usually sent cards every other year, especially Rudolph! Thanks for the wonderful video.
These cards are just amazing!!! Love them all. :) Just a quick question tho, what kind of paper do you use for the stitching. I tried it with my regular card stock, but I think that the paper is not sturdy enough, because it bends after a few stitch. Can you give me some useful advice on this?
I love the stitching! Where is the Best Buy to purchase the die?i like this technique a lot but can’t afford to buy anymore craft items, I make cards and have lots of stamps,dies etc. I do have needles and embroidery thread. I would love to buy some die cuts of the die that you have if you would be interested in selling me some?! Thanks for the great video, you are so talented! I have watched a lot of your YouTube’s.
These are all amazing! I was a cross stitch girl too spending HOURS doing it all through college and early in my marriage before I was swept away by scrapbooking. Love all these ideas and that fun Stampin' Up die. I spent my day catching up on all your videos today so I feel like in a round about way, we got to hang out today. ;) Thanks for all the inspiration. Sending big hugs!
LOVE,LOVE,LOVE, ...did I say LOVE! Thank you for doing this video and giving us all your hints and tricks! And it could have been 3 hours long and I would be watching :) My mom taught me to cross stitch when I was little and have been doing it off and on for years, but became addicted to paper crafts, so that has become my craft but this combines both, and I LOVE it...can't wait to give it a try! Beautiful card examples and thank you for showing so many! Love all your videos and anything you do!
I LOVE these cards. I have been cross-stitching for a very long time since I was a kid. I never knew there were dies out there that created the holes. I can't wait to order them and start stitching on my cards. The stitching I believe so much to dimension on them. Thanks for showing your stitched cards. Karen Sue
I am in awe of all these beautiful cards! Your talent knows no bounds Jennifer. You have inspired me to take my card making to the next level! Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. I enjoyed every 38 minutes and 22 seconds of it. You are amazing!! :D
I've been wanting to learn to knit as a way of keeping my hands busy but I don't want to be making scarves or anything like that, plus I have two cats that would have a field day pawing at the yarn while I'm trying to work. This might be an alternative for me, plus I can incorporate the end result into my cards! Thanks for a great video!
Oh Jennifer, you are such a trouble maker! haha . I tried to do cross stitch when I was a kid & the results were terrible although I was amazing at needlepoint--a grid makes all the difference. Perhaps I can take it up again with this method. Thanks for all the inspiration, love the colors & designs.
Gorgeous!! Those were such beautiful cross stitch patterns. I bought that paper smootches die a while ago and haven't used it yet. You have inspired me to pull it out. I was thinking when you mentioned the matallic thead that you could probably spray your cross stitcing with the Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. That would be gorgeous too :)
Jennifer, thank you for taking the time and trouble to do this video. I used to LOVE to do cross stitch, even made up my own patterns from graph paper. But alas time and age has taken a tole on my eyes and dexterity, so that I can't do it anymore. But I do love your video and you gave some wonderful pointers. Thanks again... Loved all the beautiful cards.
