Seize The Birthday - Real or Faux Stitching


Hello, I've picked the theme for the latest Seize The Birthday challenge, and I've gone for Faux or Real Stitching.  

The foreground stamp is Poppy Seed Heads by Sarah Anderson for The Artistic Stamper, the stitching is Tim Holtz, the sentiment is Altenew and the background is Carabelle Studio 'Histoire de Temps'.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see how the rest of the team and our guest Lorraine have added stitching to their projects, and play along with us.  If you don't want to include stitching, you can still play along with our Anything Goes theme, as long as it's birthday.


  1. Great minds 😊. Super fun card

  2. I had to look soooo closely at the stitching as I really thought it was real. But I am right in thiking it is a stamp. Right? I am still not sure as it looks so real. You got me here.

    1. It is a stamp, Barb, but I agree, so realistic!

  3. Such a fun card, Shirley! At first glance I thought it was stitched. What a fun stamp!

  4. Tim Holtz has a stitched stamp with fussy threads at the end? Genius! Love all of the background stamping!

  5. Gorgeous card Shirley :-) I love the artsy stamping and collage effect! A perfect one layer card!! LOVE it! :-)

    Sorry it took me a while to pop by, I have been on vacation and just returned home :-) Thanks so much for welcoming me to the party! :-)

    Lols x x x

  6. Yay for randomness making a perfect picture!! You're the expert on this, Shirley! And I agree, I thought the stitching was real - how fab is that!!
