Stamping With Friends Bloghop - featuring Stitched With Whimsy Dies

Hey Crafty Friends!!! Today I am joining the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop featuring stand-alone dies.  So, what are stand alone dies?  These are dies that are not part of a bundle, they are usually shapes like Layering Circle Dies, Rectangle Stitched Die, Stylish Shapes, etc.  They can be used with any stamps or paper.  I chose the Stitched With Whimsy Dies.  I have had them for ages and they need more love. 

The purpose of this card is to share an alternative card made with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sweet Sunflowers.  The Stitched with Whimsy Dies really made my focal point pop.  I love the delicate floating lines around my stamped sunflower. 

I used the largest dies to add stitched
impression to my card liner. 

  • This die does not cut paper to size, it leaves the impression you can use a die multiple times on one layer or multiple dies on a page. 
  • The dies add that perfect touch or texture and interest to your layer. 
  • Great for cards, journals and scrapbook pages.
  • For my card I measured the die, cut paper to size I need and then ran it through die cut machine.
