Knitting Stamps

Sorry it's been a while, I did mean to add these Joanna Sheen Knitting stamp sample cards much earlier.
I made 4 cards for the shows but I cant wait to make more Lol..
Here is the first one.. a knitting bag card.
...and when you open it up it has all this inside...
To make this card I created my own template.. Feel free to download it and use it yourselves .. click on the image and save.
You will need to use the template to cut 2 parts and then you overlap the flaps on the bottom and glue them together... this makes the bag ready to embelish etc.
I used the template to cut out the paper to both line and cover the bag. I used the stamps to create the patterned paper for the inside, adding extra stamps from the Joanna Sheen Haberdashery range of stamps . For the outside I stamped the images first and then embossed them throught the cuttlebug using the Square lattice embossing folder by Stampin up. Acetate scored and folded created a little stand inside the bag to glue other bits and pieces that I stamped out using the Haberdashery stamps.. the little gift card holder is a piece of card with corners to hold the card.
The flap over the bag is also embossed with the square latice folder then glued to the back with velcro added for the front to hold the bag card shut with a button to embellish.
The handle of the bag is coloured with a Tan promarker pen. I used a die to create the rose but embossed it before rolling up.. to make a 'knitted' Rose..Lol..
.. This bag was alot of fun to make and I hope that some of you will be inspired to use the template and make one for youreselves, if you do, I'd love to see it.

Here is the second card I made...
I stamped the borders on the sheet in various colours direct onto the card. The lovely house is stamped from Joanna Sheen's Garden of dreams Countryside stamps and coloured with promarkers. The heart is stamped with a mixture of ink and then embossed through the cuttlebug with the Square lattice folder.

For the third card I cut out a square of card... embossed it with the square lattice folder... then pricked some holes and used wool to do blanket stitch around the edge. I then stamped the lovely knitted heart and the I love knitting stamp and added it to the card.
and here is the forth card
I stamped onto brown craft paper the borders and tile square.... making sure to stamp the ones I wanted white - with versamark to emboss with white powder. and then run it through the cuttlebug in the square lattice folder. (you might have guessed by now that this folder is fabulous for knitting theme or embroidery theme cards) I made a tassel out of the wool and added some under the little greeting.

Thank you for visiting my blog today... I hope I've inspired some of you to use the templates and have play too.


  1. TFS the handbag template Sylvie, it's gorgeous the way you've made it with all the balls of wool etc.
