Team Card Swap | Needlepoint Nook Friend Card

One of my favourite things about being a part of Stampin’ Up! is being a part of a fabulous group of like minded people. As a team we have so much fun together, not just when we get together at team and Stampin’ Up! events, but all year around on our Facebook groups. As a team we organise regular events including our recent Blog Hops (for the launch of the Spring Summer Catalogue, and the start of Sale-a-bration!) but also a fun card swap!

Card swaps are usually a BIG part of in person events, but because we only get together a few times a year, we often arrange extra ones to share our creativity and spark someone else’s imagination. Recently, we did a swap based on the new catalogue, I hope to share the cards I received with you soon, but today I thought I’d share the card I sent out

I made 6 of these cards, and they came together surprisingly quickly! Partly due to the fact that I can be pretty organised when it comes to mass producing cards, but also because this stamp and die set has a couple of clever features! The trio of flowers are stamped with one stamp, and die cut with one die, so they are super quick. Also the pretty label, takes two steps, the die collection has a die which cuts the stitched marks, but its actually cut out with a punch! Awesome!

My favourite part of this suite though is the fun stitched details. A few of the dies have stitched marks on, and you guys know how much I love a stitched die! But also the stamps and Designer Series Papers also feature pretty stitched details, and actually look like you’ve hand stitched your projects… just with a stamp!

One thing though, this is a stamp set that requires a gentle application of ink, as if you over ink you’re at risk of loosing that pretty stitched details. I would suggest stamping onto some grid paper to get your hand in before you stamp onto your projects with this one!

  1. First of all, Let ME say, “THANK YOU!” for making this video! I know I would have read somewhere what you just showed me! BUT, I know it NOW when I can use it,BETTER! I didn’t know why I wanted the Story Label Punch, I just did! Because, at first, I wasn’t going to get any of these die sets or SAB Freebies. Thank you very much for sharing about the punch, I would never have even thought about using them together! What a great find! Again, Thank YOU, ever so much for this video!
