I have to say I am just loving all the new Stampin’ Up! colors and stamp sets that are in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog. It just seems like they all go so well together.
This card using a new stamp set called Stitched All Around. It has a set of matching dies called Stitched Labels (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle). The stamp set is fun and has some wonderful sentiments but the Framelits are really different and steal the show. There are two dies that cut out a straight line. One makes the little x’s on my card and the other cuts out little dots that look like you used a paper piercer but is so much easier. Then there is a background die that makes a pattern. The other seven dies in the set cut out the sentiments and all of them have stitching on them. I think the one I used for the circle on this card is my favorite.
The colors I used on this card are Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macron, Whisper White and Grapefruit Grove (for the little heart). I embossed the piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is a 3D Dynamic Textured Impression Folder. It embosses a deeper pattern into the cardstock. It is thicker so you don’t use a bottom plate with your Big Shot.
The twine I used is from Nature’s Twine. It is thicker than regular Baker’s twine and has a little waxy feeling to it. It comes in four colors (Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Grapefruit Grove and Crumb Cake).
