Default Hand Stitching or Embroidery on Cards

Has anyone else done any hand stitching or embroidery on their cards? I recently have started doing this on my cards and I am totally addicted! Just in the past week, I have made 4 hand stitched cards that I have posted on my blog. My mojo has been totally rejuvenated and I am having so much fun!

Those on your blog are cute...but I hate hand sewing! My stitches would never look that good.

Kim--I love that tree--now that I would do because a machine was involved.

Patti and Kim, I think your cards are all amazing!

Stitching those images is pretty darn cool! I've never tried that and probably won't, lol. Looks too complicated to me. My Janome Sew Mini is my friend!

I prefer to hand stitch over machine stitch. I am a fast stitcher and I find it relaxing. I love to machine sew. I have an embroidery machine I just never really could make cards that way. I keep threatening to buy a Janome Sew Mini though.

I recently put a tutorial on my blog regarding stitching on cards...no sewing machine needed!

I love to combine my two favorite crafts...paper crafting and needle art!

Here's one:

Mel McCarthy does some wonderful stamping projects with hand embroidery. Here's one of her posts that explains how to embroider an image colored with Copics: http://melstampz.blogspot.com/2009/0...-projects.html

You can also search her blog for the word "embroidery" to find other samples.

Wow Niki - Your blend of stitching and card making is just absolutely gorgeous! The Reading Flopsey card is just amazing and I LOVE what you did with the beads on the Baby Dress!

I was a cross-stitcher first and my early cards were just a way to get small pieces to family for birthdays, etc. I've uploaded some to my gallery...

Superman Card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=190160

Stitched Heart: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=190160

Stitched Flower: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=190160

My Favorite Stitched Card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=190160

Stitched Star: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=190160

Hoping for more posts - I'd love to see some more examples of blending of the two arts!

Oh, and here's one more - a very recent one - that plays with thread, beads, and paper in a little bit different way. Can anyone say "Spirograph" or would I just be dating myself??
