Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop | Needlepoint Nook

Hello there stamping friends! I hope you are having a fabulous week. It's been a busy one here with my kids home for school holidays and all of the extra things that you do when they are home.  I'm excited to share with you this new Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. This hop we are all about the Needlepoint Nook Suite found on pgs. 38 - 39 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

 If you are into sewing/cross-stitch/needlepoint/embroidery, then this product suite is right up your alley! And a lot quicker to add that gorgeous stitching detail to your projects rather than pulling out the needle and thread.  I've got a gorgeous layered birthday card and then a Thank You Card Gift set for my projects today.

The main colours for my cards today, Night of Navy and Blushing Bride, come from the coordinating Needlepoint Nook DSP. This amazing DSP has stunning photographic imagery of hand-stitched embroidery and richly coloured, beautifully detailed designs. An embroidery artist actually hand embroidered the patterns for the DSP and then Stampin' Up! then photographed the embroidery to get that amazing photographic imagery. Its really stunning how the DSP was put together. Check out more about this stunning DSP and the whole Needlepoint Nook Suite at the Stampin' Up! You Tube Channel HERE. It really is awesome to see how it all came together.

I really wanted to show off the embossing dies that come in the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies. How good do they look embossed into the base layer and then having the DSP, stamped images and other elements from the suite layered over top .

I especially love the simple elegance this embossing die gives to 'pretty up' the envelope. Just trace around the envelope flap in your favourite colour cardstock (or DSP), emboss the cardstock piece in your die cutting machine and then adhere it to your envelope. It couldn't be simpler. I know I would love to receive a card with some extra special touches on the envelope as well.

The Thank You cards are kept in with similar design elements to the main birthday card. Just changing up the design of each one with different elements from the Needle and Thread Photopolymer Stamp Set and then the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and again 'prettying up' the envelopes but this time with DSP.  Bundle them together with some gorgeous packaging and you've got a beautiful handmade gift.

I hope that I've given you some inspiration with this suite today. I really love that my projects today don't contain much white but really focus on more colour in each element.

Now on to the all amazing, all gorgeous Stesha Bloodhart in the U.S. with her bright and fun projects. You will be WOWed!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
