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).
Hmmm. I’ve been looking at this bundle and you are making it harder. Love the color combination, too.
Love those colors – and the stamped die-cut looks great on the basket weave layer.
Fabulous colour combination, Susan! I fell in love with this embossing folder during SAB – it looks great in the background.
