Stitching Cut File 33 of 36: Seashell

Wednesday, March 29, 2023

The 33rd of the 36 Cut Files for Stitching is a Seashell!
Design Team Member Noelle Culp created this fun page! She says, "For this layout I used the plain Seashell Cut File to make a slightly smaller seashell from Garden Shoppe Paper 21. After my Silhouette cut out the Seashell for Stitching I glued the shell that I cut out of the patterned paper down and stitched around it in white embroidery thread. I added my photos and also some Leaves that I cut out from different Garden Shoppe papers. I finished with a few Floral Die Cuts, a Thickers title, splashed some copper paint, and a few sequins!"

Here is another layout made with today's Seashell from the 36 Cut Files for Stitching by Guest Designer Cindi Green! She says, "For this seashell I wanted to create a background that looked like a shell so I started by spraying a sheet of Vicki Boutin White Foundations Media Paper with Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass and Spiced Marmalade with a dash of Mica Stain. I let this dry completely overnight before cutting the holes of the Seashell. Next,I stitched the inner sections of the shell with six strands of floss in orange and blue colors using a backstitch. I made sure I wore plastic gloves because I didn't want to transfer any of the ink onto my hands and onto another part of the project. For the top layer, I cut out only the outer section of the shell on another sheet of ivory cardstock and stitched the outline of the shell using a chain stitch. I cut out the inner section and then popped it up with foam squares and laid it on top of the stitched inner portion of the shell. I finished the layout by adding my photos and a title and a few embellishments from the Vintage Coastal collection. I hope you enjoy this and try adding some mixed media to your stitching projects!"
