Cross-Stamp-Stitching Card

When I saw Savannah O'Gwynn's two videos on Virtual Smooches about the technique for the Cross-Stamp-Stitching card, I was totally amazed and thought Savannah is really a creative stamping artist! Here are the links for these two awesome videos:

Since I was inspired by Savannah's Cross-Stamp-Stitching technique so much, I decided to make my own cross-stitching card. I also applied the layout for this week's Designer Drafts challenge on Paper Smooches Sparks. Here is the challenge:

And here is the cross-stamp-stitching card I made:

The sail boat cross-stitch pattern was found from internet for free. I used the little "x" stamp from the Needle Little Love set to stamp the sail boat. The wave was cut with border die on vellum and colored with blue Copic marker. I heat embossed white text of "waving hello" on the vellum and attached at the bottom of the card. Then, I stamped the little bird on the sail boat and colored with Copic markers. 

Due to the water theme of the card, I would like to attend the Addicted to CAS challenge as well. Here is the challenge:

Cardstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (blue)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Needle Little Love set & Wicked Nauticool set)
Ink Pads: Memento, Versamark
Die: PTI
Others: Copic markers, white embossing powder, vellum

Thank you for visiting my blog.
