TSSC Week 12 - Stitched Exotics


It's Monday and time for Technostamper's Sketch Challenge #12 already! I really like the sketch for this week and found it easy to work with and I am excited to get to use my new stamp set, Stitched Exotics:

And here's my card. For the main layer I used one of the Real Red designs from the Designer Series Paper "Prints Pack" which is a Level 1 Hostess reward. This great pack has five wonderful colors of Designer Paper not available otherwise: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue. Twelve sheets of each, for a total of sixty 6" x 6" sheets makes for a great assortment and value.

The stitched swirl from the set stamped in white on the red cardstock base coordinates with the look of stitching in the Designer Paper. The focal flower is stamped in red, cut out and layered on celery then Basic Gray. The entire celery/gray layer is paper pierced to again mimic the stitching design. The small flower in the set was stamped in red three times and punched out for the embellishment, then stamped in celery once for the large flower center. I have been eye-ing Stitched Exotics ever since it came out in the catalog and am tickled to finally get it (taking advantage of the current special, of course, because I reallly like jumbo wheels and of course, I also like to get things FREE!) : )

Set: Stitched Exotics
Paper: Real Red from Designer Paper Prints Pack (Level 1 Hostess); Whisper White, Basic Gray, Certainly Celery cardstocks
Inks: Real Red Classic, White StazOn inks
Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, green Circle Ice Rhinestone brad, Dimensionals, 1/2" punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.

The Stitched Exotics set is part of the Free Wheelin' Special available until April 30. When you purchase any of the six sets, you receive the coordinating Jumbo Wheel, a $10.00 total value (including tax, shipping), for FREE!! Gotta' love those specials, especially the free ones! : ^)
