PDE Ch# 19: Stitching - Sunflower Tag

Hi, Crafters! Welcome to my blog. Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge over at my challenge blog, PDE LINKY PARTY. The theme is Stitching (real or faux).


Here is the tag I made with this theme....

I used Craftin Desert Divas - Blooming for You


You can buy this stamp set HERE.


  • Miss Kate Cuttables - sunflower in pot
  • Silhouette ID# 14239 (5 postage stamp shapes)
  • Foam squares to adhere sunflower center and to adhere entire image to tag
  • Craftin Desert Divas - Blooming for You stamp set (sentiment)
  • Timeless Twine - Olive Green

Tag Image Matting
  • I created an internal OFFSET with the Silhouette Software, then changed the solid line to a stitched one
  • The Cardstock cutting setting was changed to Silhouette Sketch pens
  • Removed the cutting blade and inserted a brown sketch pen

Sunflower
  • Almost the same process for the sunflower petals
  • I created an internal OFFSET with the Silhouette Software, then changed the solid line to a stitched one
  • Kept the cut setting so it would cut the stitch lines 

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm crafting. Make sure you pop over to PDE LINKY PARTY and link up your projects with STITCHING.
