I love to hand-stitch on my layouts, so I was super excited to see the Amy Tan Comrade Embroidery Stencil, in the December 2014 Embellishment Kit. I wanted to use it, for the title on my layout, to add a fun texture to my page. It’s such a great alpha, and it gives you the option to add color with different threads. I used the Teal and Black thread included with the Stencil, to fit in with the color scheme of my layout. And I wanted to use the Washi Tape from the Embellishment Kit, to create some star embellishments for my page. I layered 4 strips of the Washi Tape over the Vellum from the December 2014 Cardstock Add-On Kit, and then punched out the star shapes. I added a touch of adhesive behind each star, and then attached them with machine stitching.
I wanted to create a card featuring the Thickers and Amy Tan rub-ons from the December 2014 Hip Kit Main Kit. I used the Applique patterned paper for my card base, which provided me with lines to follow, to line up the Thickers for my sentiment. And I love that the Amy Tan rub-ons let you add a watercolor look to your projects. I layered one of the heart shapes from the Amy Tan Bits pack, over the rub-on, and finished my card by adding some drops of spray mist.
