Prick-n-Stitch Cards

It is still bitterly cold here in Heilbron in the Freestate. There is still some snow all over the veld, the wind is blowing at a speed and the sun is only peeking out every now and then. Suppose it is a good reason to stay indoors and craft - VBG! That's exactly what I intend doing today. How far I am going to succeed in doing that, is a different story.

Here are some pics of cards I have been making in the last couple of weeks. I have to give a class to a couple of ladies towards the end of the month - these are for examples. I am going to let them make a corner bookmark with just a butterfly to work on a little triangle. Unfortunately there won't be time to make a whole card, but I think they will be able to make good use of the bookmark. Plan to finish the whole bookmark for them, they can just stick their finished butterfly onto it. Will show an example of that at a later date.

This was also the first cut-out that I did with my new Cricut! What a nice toy to have!

Done in silver/gold variegated cotton.

I just love this pattern and have done it many, many times already.

Another versatile pattern done many times.

This is the little butterfly I am going to teach them to work. It can be done quite quickly and I am sure it will give them an idea of what Prick-n-Stitching is about. I think this is one of the more affordable crafts that one can do, but still very satisfying.

I will post some of the bookmarks I've done as examples at a later stage.

Thanks for visiting! Stay warm or cool and happy crafting!

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog. I have now become a follower of your one.
    Your cards are fabulous and I love the photos of the snow -we had some around our house here in New Zealand last week and it is meant to be spring here.
    Have fun with your stitching.
