Hello Spring!!

Hello Everyone!


It is time for the new Words 2 Craft By challenge!


W2CB DT Badge


Our inspiration for April/May challenge:

No Winter lasts forewer, no Spring skips its turn.
April is a promise that May is bound to keep, and we know it.
Hal Borland


For today’s card I decided to combine Cross Stitching and No-line coloring! I just can not stop making cards with cross stitched details. It is amazing addition, and I must say that the receivers are delighted. They want more cards like this.  That means I have to buy the new big Cross-stitch Die-namics from MFT.




Thanks to the MFT cross stitched printable I was able to create this embroidery pattern. It is beautiful, especially in this color combination.

For my flowers and leaves I used MFT In Bloom and Plentiful Petals Stamps sets and coordinating dies. I stamped them with Banana Split and Limelight Premium dye ink and after that I colored them with Copics.  ( G20, G22, G24   /  Y06, Y17  /  YR04, YR07). I also added some highligts with Uni Ball White gel pen on colored images.

For my Sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring Showers and stamped on my panel with Memento Black ink. The panel is die cut with  MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax set 1.

-MFT In Bloom Stamps set and Die-namcis

    Hi Kristina,

    Your card is gorgeous! Your cross stitching is beautiful and I LOVE how you have combined it with the amazingly coloured, stamped die-cuts. Yellow is not a colour I use often, but you have inspired me to use it more.

    I saw this at Time Out & had to come check it out! Absolutely gorgeous card! I recently got the MFT stitched tag so I could try to get back to doing some cross stitching after nearly 20 years of not doing it. You’ve totally inspired me!
