Needlepoint Nook - Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop

Needlepoint Nook

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Needlepoint Nook Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. Just over the moon about what she has created!


Today, we will be showcasing the Needle &Thread Bundle. These products come from the Needlepoint Nook Suite and all coordinate beautifully with sweet little buttons, colorful DSP (Designer Series Paper), and gorgeous thread-everything you need for that unique stitched look! What I love about this set is all of the fun stitched images and sweet sentiments.There are 17 stamps and 12 dies. Additionally, there are some fun dies that create stitched designs. There are so many possibilities!

   flower and thank you needlepoint stamps and dies

 For my first card, I stamped my flowers in second generation Smokey Slate Ink for a subtle look. I wanted to add a little something to them to dress them up a bit so another technique used here is the sprinkled embossing powder onto the petals. It's supper easy to do and creates a unique, textured look. 


Here's how you do it: 
  1. First, take your Aqua Painter and tap it randomly in spots on your flowers (make sure to do this before adding them to your card front).
  2. Next, take your Silver Embossing Powder and sprinkle it over those "water-sprinkled" areas. This will allow the powder to stick temporarily.
  3. Then use your Heat Tool to heat emboss those areas with the powder, and you'll end up with some lovely gold embossed sprinkles in your background.
Here's a closeup of the effect:


I'ts really very pretty and you can see that lovely stitched die used in my background here as well:


For my next card, I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a subtle embossed shape in my background. I think the rectangle dies pair perfectly with this entire suite. I have layered on a few flowers, images, and die cuts stamped in Powder Pink Ink and Smokey Slate Ink and die cut from Balmy Blue Cardstock. I finished it off with a little bling, of course, from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.



My final card  uses some of that lovely Needlepoint Nook DSP in the background and more layering of stamped images and die cut elements. You can see how lovely that stitched label die looks cut in Balmy Blue Cardstock AND it coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch which I used to punch it out!. I just ADORE the stitched edge!


These products were so fun and inspiring and I know I had a blast using them. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs (full list of supplies below). Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages.

For this hop, we are featuring the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set. I made a fun little cards that uses both the stamps and coordinating dies. This bundle was my number one pick from the Occasions Catalog. It's just so gorgeous and offers so much!

I used the largest flourish stamp in the set in Memento Ink for a bold detail in my background. I then die cut a Stitched Rectangle and embossed it using the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  for more texture.

I die cut a few butterflies from white and black cardstock and used my Sponge Dauber to color the butterflies with Mango Melody Ink and Calypso Coral Ink. To finish it off, I added a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.

Here's a close-up of the butterflies:

Stampin' Up! Follow Your Dreams - Embossed Watercolor Birthday Card





Hey Peaches! I have such a fun card to share with you today! I bought the Follow Your Dreams Set a while back and was so excited to use it. However, there were so many ideas that had already been done, that I wanted to do something unique and more my style, so I have finally gotten around to using it. It's such a pretty set and I have loved playing with it. Here's a look at the stamp and die set:


Follow your Dreams Clear-Mount Bundle

I have really been enjoying using my signature cool colors and combining them with gold elements. I embossed my sentiment in gold and used Metallic Gold Thread behind the feathers. The feathers were watercolored using an Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay Ink and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. I love how the pop of color really stands out against the white and gold. 
One hint I will share about  getting this ombre watercolor look with your feathers is to watercolor on your Watercolor Paper fist and then, after it has dried, die cut from it. This gives you a larger piece of paper to color on instead of trying to hold a tiny die cut in place and trying to color it. It also allows you to choose what parts of the colored paper you want die cut. 



I hope you have enjoyed today's project. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!
