Stampin’ Up! has just released the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, a new preview product from next upcoming annual catalog, and I just made a quick card with my new set:
The set comes with four circles, four squares and four ovals, and as you can see, the new feature is the stitched embellishing around the edges of each shape as shown in my first example. What a great idea and how fun these are going to be to work with!
Here is a short video to give you a better idea of how the Stitched Shapes Framelits can work along with your existing products.
The colors that I used on my Stitched Christmas Cheer card are a vibrant twist on the traditional Christmas colors:
Using aqua blue instead of green gives this color scheme a little zip, and I was able to use my Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim for some added sparkle and shine.
In addition to the new Stitched Shapes Framelits, I used some stamp images from the Tin of Tags photopolymer set (142180) from the Holiday Catalog, a 16-piece set which is normally $21.00, but until November 30th is on sale for $15.75. This is just one of the stamp sets that is on sale for 25% off this month, chose because they coordinate well with the new Stitched Shapes Framelits. Just click on the Holiday Catalog image on the right >> then choose Stitched From the Heart from the menu bar to see them all!
I stamped a snowflake in Pool Party ink on Whisper White cardstock before I stamped the sentiment over it in Real Red ink, then I die cut the stitched circle. The Real Red cardstock panel was embossed with the Holly embossing folder. I taped a piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim to the back of the circle before I attached it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals foam dots.
Here are all of the supplies that I used to make my Stitched Christmas Cheer card. Click on any picture for a larger view or to order. (If you apply Code D2KSZNSF to your online order and allow Demonstrator contact, I’ll send you a reusable handstamped thank-you card!)
This card is just one simple example of using the Stitched Shapes Framelits; can you see other possibilities?
