Don’t overlook the Stitched Nested Label die set, in the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. It’s bundled with the Free As A Bird stamp set, for a 10% discount. The Stampin’ Up! creators cleverly used “nested” in its name to go with the birds. Cute, huh?
Today, I’m showing the versatility of the dies, without a bird in sight. I used this weeks’s CAS(E) this sketch for inspiration. Instead of the diamond shape, I used the irregular hexagon shape of the Stitched Nested Label Dies.
From Thick Whisper White Cardstock, I used the smallest die to cut five hexagons, and a medium die to cut one hexagon. Then, I placed them on dimensionals, and arranged the five, small ones on a side panel that was embossed with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. I glued this panel (1 1/4″ X 5 1/4″) to a Thick Whisper White card base.
The large die was perfect for holding my sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set, “You are wonderful.” This is where I had fun choosing the colors of Stampin’ Write Markers that I wanted to use. They are: Berry Burst, Highland Heather, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Tranquil Tide.
I colored the the stamp, “You are wonderful,” in six colors, and then stamped on the Whisper White die cut. The small die cuts were stamped in the same manner with a stamp from Abstract Impressions. It seemed to go with the loops in “wonderful.”
For more color, and a bit of sparkle, I added five Glitter Enamel Dots. One set has retired, but I listed both (current and retired) enamel dots in my Product List.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some versatility with the Stitched Nested Label Dies. Thank you for stopping by!
