Hello and Happy Sunday! Today I pulled out the beautiful Needlepoint Nook stamp set and Needlepoint Elements thinlits. I wasn't sure what to do first so to get my feet wet with this set I decided to try a little catalog casing. Now I didn't CASE it completely but pretty close. Let's take a closer look...
I started out by layering a berry burst card base with some dsp from the Needlepoint Nook dsp pack. I then layered another layer of berry burst that I stamped with the stitched image in this set. I used tone on tone stamping, meaning I stamped the stitched image in berry burst ink on berry burst cardstock. I ten used the stitched embossing die on vellum cardstock and cut it out with a circle die from the layering circles framelits. I used the largest circle. I then cut out some of the outline leaves dies using soft sea foam and granny apple green cardstock. Next I stamped the flowers in blushing bride and flirty flamingo inks, and the leaves in granny apple green ink and cut them out with the matching dies. Using some stampin dimensionals I layered the pieces together on the center of the card. For the sentiment I cut out the label die in this set in soft sea foam and stamping the sentiment in granny apple green on a scrap of whisper white cardstock and trimmed it to fit on the label. I finished the card up by adding some adhesive backed sequins around the card front.
I love the way this came out and I admit I wish I was creative enough to come up with this design on my own....LOL But CASEing is a great way to get your creativity flowing. So if you ever get stuck or if you have a fun new set and not sure where to start....the catalog examples are a great way to help you get started.
