Welcome everyone! I’m so glad you stopped by. Today I have a card using the newly released Stitched Kaleidoscope Hexi-Gem die set. I this is simple die set is gorgeous and a little addicting to stitch up. I could see making a lot of these in the future. Great to cut ahead, stitch on the go and create cards with later.
I cut the main piece from black cardstock and stitched it with a metallic variegated thread. Then I chose cardstock colors inspired by my thread to fill in the extra border pieces that come in the die set. After the stitching was finished, I adhered the two pieces together with liquid glue and added foam tape to the back.
I stamped a sentiment from an older Spellbinders sentiment set and used the strip die included to cut it out. This is the same teal cardstock I used in the edge of the stitched piece. I like how they tie in together. This is added with a foam strip.
Last, I inked blended salvaged patina, scattered straw and spun sugar distress oxide inks on a white panel and spritzed it with water. After blotting it dry I flicked some black paint on the panel too. I popped this panel up with foam tape before adding my stitched pieces on top.
Have you tried stitching dies before? Do you enjoy them? They are definitely different then typical cross stitch or embroidery but I think they’re fun too.
