Hello everyone! Today is release day over at the Spellbinders website and this release is a fantastic one! You can find all the new products right here. Today I am sharing three cards that I made with beautiful new stitching dies. Lets get started! (Affiliate links used where possible. Using my links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you. Your support is appreciated! I used my Platinum 6 die cutter for all the die cutting and the Glimmer hot foil system for the foiling.)
This new stitching die collection is called Spring into Stitching and this card uses two of the new stitching dies: Stitched Petal Frame and Stitched Medallion. I used the Stitched Petal Frame as a backdrop for the Stitched Medallion die. The medallion was die cut from heavy weight vellum and then I added the stitching with light pink embroidery floss. I used three strands of floss for all my stitching. I die cut the Stitched Petal Frame from Spellbinders Pink Sand cardstock twice, stacked them and then adhered them to a card base made from Spellbinders Silver Fox cardstock. I used foam adhesive behind the points where I added the stitching in order to pop the medallion up. To make sure that the foam dots were secure I added a bit of Bearly Art glue to the foam dots. To finish off the card I added the foiled sentiment to the center and light pink pearls. The foiled sentiment is from the Celebrate You Glimmer Sentiments from the Celebrate You collection.
Given that I am a clean and simple kind of gal I think that this card is my favorite of the three cards I made. This card was created with the Stitched Flower die set. I die cut the flowers and leaves from white cardstock and then did my stitching in light blue and medium blue for the large flower, yellow for the small flower used as the center and a medium green for the leaves. I foiled geometric outline image (from Geo Foliage Glimmer hot foil plates and dies from the Yana's Blooms collection) in silver foil on Spellbinders Glacier cardstock. The panel was die cut with an Essentials rectangle and adhered to a white cardstock base. I foiled the sentiment from the Celebrate You Glimmer plates in silver as well. Everything was adhered to the panel and then I finished with a few Fashion Silver embellishments. I'm going to add this card to the current As You See It challenge of spring flowers and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
This card took me the longest to make because of all the stitching. Because I used to do a lot of cross-stitching I have alot of embroidery floss. I was able to find three shades of teal for all the stitching to match the background cardstock that I used. I die cut the Stitched Petal Frame from white cardstock and then did all the stitching. For the background I used Spellbinders Waterfall cardstock. I used the lightest shade for the center, the small corner areas and the little round areas. The medium shade was used for the petals in the center of the panel and the darkest shade for the outer petals. I love how it turned out! I finished with foiled sentiments from the Celebrate You Glimmer sentiments set and tiny white gems from the Color Essentials Crystal Mix gems pack.
I will be back in a few days with a more projects created with new products from the March release! Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.
