Embroidery Stitched cards

Hi,
Another cold day and the frost still has not given on parts of my garden we had again another heavy frost last night but the one good thing is the sun is shinning for the second day.
Today I bring you some new cards all stitched, I really love stitching cards using different threads and beads, all but one card is stitched using a stitching Starform peel offs. Although I have used the peel offs I have done my own thing with them and not followed any pictures or patterns these are my own designs




This card I am really pleased with the vase, the flowers were left overs from others sheets and I put them altogether making what I think is a lovely card, I used red beads for the centres of the flowers and red/gold thread. the leaves have a green thread and the whole design is on a gold card.


The fan was stitched with two shades of Violet and beads put on alternate parts of the fan and the thread in between was done to look like lattice work and then at the base of the fan a cluster of beads

This one was pink and green with pink beads and the butterflies are made to look as if they are flying around the card with beads on the bodies of the butterflies.








This card is totally different, I used the printed design of the card and picked it following the pattern on bother side of the card and then stitched using a gold variegated thread. then placing a piece of acetate down the centre of the card and put a gold Bird house and two other birds flying around.
I hope your have enjoyed today's post and look forward to seeing you again soon. Day 4 of the Tais is printed tomorrow, I still have no idea what it is but I know it does have 9 beads to go on it.
Until we meet again take care and thanks for popping by.
Hugs
Margaret
