Stampin Sunday Blog Hop - Stitched All Around.

Hello everyone 😊

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop (Second Sunday) hosted by Sara Levin.

You are currently here with Kim Oliver - KO Creations Cards - Australia. I have a list of hop participants closer to the end of this post.

Today the Design Team are creating with the new suite 'Stitched All Around' bundle

This is also what I used to create with as part of this months 'Tutorial Bundle' available further down this post.

I have created 3 different card projects today.

Here are my projects.

Enjoy Your Special Day

I created my own DSP for this card by repeat stamping the rose from 'Healing Hugs' stamp set. The gorgeous focal rose has been stamped 3 times then fussy cut along the petal layer lines then layered together using dimensionals. I felt that doing this added even more depth and life to an already gorgeous image.
The sentiment and label are from the 'Stitched All Around' bundle.

For my next project I decided I would create a card just using nothing but the Stitched All Around bundle itself. 
It was quite a challenge, as for me the 'Stitched All Around' bundle is one that I naturally would use as an accessory set. Just like I used for the first card above.

Here it is.

Oh Darling You Are Fabulous

I used a technique for this card called repeat stamping, but I added some more interest by using another technique called 'Shadowing'. This gave the sentiment some Oomph. I layered a few of the stitched labels together to create a focal area and tied it all together with some 'Blackberry Bliss' twine. This colour works with the Rich Razzleberry cardstock as I inked the cardstock in 'Rich Razzleberry' for the sentiment shadow, which made it look very Blackberry Bliss like.

Here is the colour combo for the layers on card above .

For my final card I needed to use up some of the DSP I had left over from my first, so I fussy cut out a rose and leaves from what I had left and used another part of the 'Stitched All Around' bundle, the straight faux stitching lines. I cut the Whisper White card stock on an angle before adding the cross stitch edge. I glued this over a piece of  'Natures Poem' DSP that had complimenting colours to my rose image. The 'Lovely' sentiment has been stamped in Grapefruit Grove.

Here is the colour combo I used for my above card plus my very first card today.
 I am loving using unusual colours together atm.
Makes me think outside my comfort zone.

  1. One at a time, in a colorful stack, layered up -- every way you've used them is great. My two favorite details are your fabulous shadow stamping and turning the embossed detail die into a lacy layer.

  2. Wowsa Kim ... love all your cards, but that second one with the shadowing is AMAZING!! Love love love the colours you have put together and the ratio of those colours. Perfect! xx

  3. I love the 'Darling you are fabulous' text as a background - that is genius!!

  4. Oh Kim, you got me at the first card. Beautiful, just beautiful !! xx
