Stitched Cards Using MFT's Tag Dies

Hello Lovely.  In the words of my friend Kelly Latevola, it's been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post.  If you don't know Kelly, I suggest you check her out.  I love her videos and coloring, but most of all I love her story time.  When you're done here go watch one of her videos and you'll see what I mean.

I'm gonna skip all the gory details of why I took a blogging break and just say there were some things in our family that were a bit more distracting than I could handle with my busy work schedule.  So now that all of those things are tamed back down I'll start focusing on writing again.  Anywho...let's talk about the cards.


I had to travel for work last week, so did a bit of stitching while I was on the road.  It pays to be the passenger.  Stitching on the go is the best way I've found to travel with my card making hobby so far.  I enjoy making kits to take on the go, but the stitching is much easier to grab and go when I don't have time to plan.


For all three of these, I used the MFT Stitched Tag die and some of their free patterns.  The baby feet and this butterfly are two of my favorite patterns.  I really need to branch out and make a few more of the snowflakes.


I cut a stack of tags and tuck them in an Iris Container, always ready to grab and go.  The container is dropped in a large zippered back with needles, round tip scissors, thread and needle threader.  I tuck completed tags back into the Iris Container until I get back home.


Once I'm back in the studio I complete the tags and add them to cards.  Unlike the scalloped stitched die this one has a tag topper and hole reinforcer, which gives the card a smart finish.
