more stitching fun...

 Hello!  I'm back with two more projects that I made using the new Spellbinders alpha stitching dies.  One project also features another new product from the May release.  I had a lot of fun making both projects.  An affiliate linked supply list is provided at the end of this post.  Using my affiliate links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.  Here is my first project:

If you saw my previous card using the stitched alpha dies you will notice a theme.  Sometimes I like to do that with projects that I create with a suite of Spellbinders products.  When I have to make a lot projects it helps to streamline things.  So with the stitched alpha dies I decided to go that route.  As you can see I stitched the letters for hello in pink and yellow.  I stitched the flowers using a darker shade of pink and yellow.  For more interest I embossed the white cardstock panel after I die cut it with a slimline rectangle die.  The folder I used was the one that was offered in February embossing folder club and is currently not available.   The sentiment was foiled using gold foil, die cut and then adhered it to the card front after I added all the leaves and flowers.  

This project actually started as a card, but then as I completed the other two cards I kept thinking about how fun it would be to turn the card into a decor project.  I had two Tim Holtz Ideaology mini frames and knew they would be perfect for my idea.  I painted the frame and the sides of the backing piece with white paint.  Once they were dry I rubbed on some Fossilized Amber distress crayon in two of the corners for a little more interest.  I picked the floral paper from the P13 Four Seasons Summer pad and trimmed it down to fit inside the frame.  I adhered that with distress collage medium and let it dry.  The sentiments are from the Stitched Alphabet Glimmer Descriptors hot foil plates were foiled with gold foil and then die cut.  I popped up everything with foam squares or strips.   There were a few little gaps so I die cut some small flowers and leaves to fill in those spaces.  I finished off the flowers with drops of Nuvo glitter drops in yellow.  I will be adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything but a card
