Chevron Chic


The Chevron Chic Challenge
The latest challenge on the MoxieFabWorld blog is to incorporate Chevron pattern onto a project, the Chevron Chic Challenge!  I am always interested in what these challenges are and Cath is such a great promoter of the latest trends spotting/highlighting and educating us.  Although I may not be the trendiest gal around, I do try to pay attention ;)
So I got all excited for this latest challenge...I knew it was coming and guess what...I don't have any Chevron striped stamps!!!  What to do...well I did have this embossing folder and I had some teeny tiny knitting needles and two colours of crochet cotton.  Thinking cap on and staying calm...
Here's what I made with the smaller in diameter than toothpick sized knitting needles.
The card stock used is Papertrey Ink Kraft and Jewel, the stamped lamb and knitting needles are Stampin' Up from the Hand Knit set and I printed the sentiment on the computer.  I used a Spellbinders Label 14 and the fancy rectangles for some die cut mats.  These were sponged in a matching ink.  I had the little metal crown in my stash.  Here it the card that I made...



  1. Totally creative and a really cute sentiment to go with it!

  2. EEEEK! I'm in awe! What a clever and totally unique card. Great take on the challenge!

  3. Brilliant Chriss ... just brilliant

  4. Very cute! I am so impressed with anyone who can knit. I can't seem to work more than one needle at a time. Great job!

  5. Hey Chriss! Thanks for linking this up to the Chevron Chic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  6. What a brilliant idea, cool to knit the chevrons for the challenge!!! Your card is sooo pretty with the kraft and burgundy and the fun stamps!!! I noticed they have more challenges on the MFW blog....wish I had the time to play along with some!!! Hope your summer is going well...I have several grandkiddos for the next few weeks so my stamping time will be limited!!!

  7. how clever is this! What a fabulous creation!!
