It’s so exciting, the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies are once again available for order. These dies were so popular that two shipments sold out almost straight away and the item number had to be turned off till new stock could be brought in. I’m happy to say that today is the day you can start ordering this product once more – well actually it was yesterday but the system had a glitch and I didn’t want you to be disappointed that you couldn’t place your order, so I waited till today to let you all know.
To show how truly gorgeous they are I put together this card for you. I started by attaching Crumb Cake card to Whisper White card and then embossing using the Hexagon Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Real Red card. I cut Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay card using each of the circles available in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Once they were attached to the card front, I added the small flower image from the Sitting Here stamp set. I had stamped this piece, coloured it and cut it using a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies some time ago. The image was stamped onto Shimmery White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. I attached the image to the card front using dimensionals.
To decorate the inside of the card I embossed Crumb Cake card using the Hexagon Embossing Folder and attached it to Whisper White. The hand cut sleeping dog image from the Sitting Here stamp set was also coloured some time ago using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. This image is attached to the left hand side of the Whisper White card, slightly over the embossed Crumb Cake card. I stamped the greeting from the Sitting Here stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I just love how much more dimension you achieve when you use the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. The circles wouldn’t have the same effect if I had simply cut them without the stitched edge. If you need more convincing, just let Brandy show you all about them in this video by Stampin’ Up!
Ok, so what do you think? Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies or plain cut shapes. I think I have to agree with Brandy that the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies just add so much to your finished creations.
