Back to Stitching

It’s the first full week back to school. I have a lot of plans.

Get caught up on…

  • assignments
  • housework
  • errands
  • get sewing again

I’m actually looking forward to them all but getting back to sewing really sounds great to me. There is a lot of fabric stashed away just waiting for my needle. I thought it would be fun to create a card using quilting squares I picked up at a local quilting shop. The fabric is by Moda and paired together with some fun sewing themed patterned paper, makes a unique card.

Every feminine card needs a bit of bling, right? The Zva Creative crystals and pearls were a great embellishment.


If you’re familiar with Zva product, you’ll know that their product line doesn’t include purple. The beautiful pearl flower accents were originally white and came as part of the butterfly set PES03CA101 from this post. Zva crystals and pearls are so easy to alter and customize with the Copic Airbrush System.  Just spray with your marker and airbrush attachment. It only takes seconds and about a minute to dry.


Supplies: Pearl Flowers PES03CA101, Black Corduroy Brad BR01CB106 and Crystal Flourish CRS02CB101 by Zva Creative, twine, black cardstock by Bazzill, Thrift Shop 8×8 paper pad & letter stickers & Wild Cards by October Afternoon, BV02 Prune Copic Marker & Airbrush System, Green Leaf Trinket Pin by Maya Road, fabric by Moda, sewing machine

Have a beautiful day!
