Occasions Mini Catalog Blog Hop---Stop #18 In Stitches wheel & Sweet Stitches DSP

Welcome to stop #18 of the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini-Catalog Blog Hop! You may be starting here or have come from Jennifer's Blog Stampin' on the Fly featuring Say It Simply, Framed Tulips Impressions Folder, and the new Beveled Windowpanes. Does it get better than that? Sure does! (If I do brag myself up!) There are 24 other stops, so read through my post, go to the next stop, then move on down the list in a big loop!

This stop features the In Stitches Wheel and the Sweet Stitches Designer Series Paper. What better way to start than with a Scrapbook page?


The In Stitches Wheel is used here two ways. first, I added a wheel width of stitches by embossing the versamark inked pattern with white embossing powder. I love this look the most--it really looks like real fancy stitches! The second way I used the wheel was to add a pattern to my photo mattes. That way, when I add photos, the photo frame will have a little texture. I used Baja Breeze ink on Baja Breeze paper for a subtle look.  By the way, isn't this piece of Designer Paper cute? The needle and thread border made me want to use it! (even if the background is pink).

How about a coordinating card?
I love quilting. I just hate how long it takes to finish one! Sewing and quilting are big in my family, so I am sure I'll have plenty of occasions to use this card! I first cut the quilt blocks using my 1 3/8 inch square punch.  I glued them on the Bashful Blue Background and ran it through my Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. I had to flip it around to get the corner design on the whole image.  Finally, I used my Chocolate Chip Marker on one row of stitching, lined it up and ran it over the "seam." Tricky, nerve-racking, but it did work! I love the final look!


Now, where would a good hop post be without a 3D item? (those are my favorite anyway).


Check it out--I used the brand spanking new Petal Cone Die to create this beauty! First, I made my own designer paper with my In Stitches Wheel and a tri-color jumbo ink cartridge, which I inked up in Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. I completely covered a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 paper with diagonal rows of the wheel pattern. I cut it in half to make each half of the petal cone and then was set! I put it together, added some buttons and brads, and had a great project ready to fill with candy!

Here's another view that shows the handle better. I used part of the die officially called a banner and linked two together with a brad. Then, I added the other brads. Then I added the buttons for fun! The card also features a scrap of the paper I designed and a brad. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

If you love my stuff, you are sure to love the next stop--as it features a few of the same products that all coordinate as part of the Sew Suite Style Watch! Visit Kim's Blog Stitchin n Stampin' on Paper featuring the Sew Suite Stamp Set! You'll love her fabulous projects!
