introducing Quick Stitch Sentiment Dies...

Papertrey Ink has lots of new goodies this month that will be released March 15th! Only a few days away! I was asked to feature these fun new dies called Quick Stitch Sentiments today. Here is a little sample...

The Quick Stitch Sentiments are a set of 4 dies. You get "thanks, hello, wish and love" in the set. What they do is punch holes in your project for you to stitch the word! How cool is that! Here I used some twine to stitch each letter a different color on my card.

I added some flowers and leaves from last month's Mini Blooms stamp set. I think Mini Blooms is becoming one of my favorite sets ever! It goes with everything!

A little peek at the dies...

And the twine colors I used on the card (just 'cause they are so pretty!) Twine is from The Twinery and the colors go great with the stamping ink colors by Papertrey Ink that I used, which were Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Spring Moss.

Thanks To You card:
STAMPS: Mini Blooms
INK: Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss, Harvest Gold
PAPER: white cardstock
DIES: Quick Stitch Sentiments
OTHER: twine from The Twinery.

On my next card, I stitched on a birthday tag with a more neutral color scheme and tucked it inside a homemade pocket.

I used Fine Linen cardstock with white embossing powder. The leaves are stamped with Turning a New Leaf, the flower is made with a new set this month Rosie Posie Step 2. I used Soft Stone ink with Fine Linen on the flower, love how it turned out!

("Birthday" is from a new stamp set, Wonderful Words: Birthday. It has a chevron look to it, so pretty.) I stamped the word "birthday" first and then die cut the holes for the word "wish" over the top, so I would have a layered look when I stitched over the stamping.

My husband saw me creating these projects and he said, "why are you sewing on paper?" I had to laugh. He just doesn't understand the paper crafting world. :) I'm a big quilter and sewer, so a hand-stitched sentiment on a card would be like giving a little part of your heart and creativity to someone special!

On my last project, I tried the dies with Papertrey Ink felt and it worked perfectly! I punched "love" out of Melon Berry felt and used the felt piece on the front cover of a mini album.

This time I didn't back stitch, just put my needle through every other hole, which was very fast with the felt, because the felt bends easily to allow your needle to go up and down quickly and grab more than one stitch at a time. I used a Jenni Bowlin small mini album and some Crate Paper stickers behind the felt. The twine I used was Papertrey Ink's Rustic Twine.

I added "with all my heart" from this stamp set.

Love With All My Heart mini album:
STAMPS: With All My Heart
INK: True Black
PAPER: none
DIES: Quick Stitch Sentiments
OTHER: Jenni Bowlin mini album, Crate Paper stickers, White twill ribbon and Melon Berry felt by Papertrey Ink, button by Pink Paislee, Rustic Twine by Papertrey Ink, floral pin.

Oh my gosh those dies are totally fabulous. I've been wanting to stitch on cards but really don't like the idea of making holes by hand. Your cards showcase the new dies perfectly. Love the colorful twine that you used.
