Spring Into Stitching Collection – Springtime Card Inspiration with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m excited to be back on the blog today to share a couple of projects using the new Spring Into Stitching Collection from Spellbinders.  The beautiful designs in this collection can be stitched for a unique, show-stopping card or simply die-cut for an equally gorgeous look. I was inspired to create four bright springtime cards for all different occasions.

Stitched Medallion

The Stitched Medallion Die Set is the perfect design to start with if you are a beginner and looking to jump into stitching dies.  It has beautiful ornate details, but doesn’t require a ton of stitches!

Stitched Flowers

Florals are great for so many occasions, and the special little details on the Stitched Flowers Die Set can really take any card up a notch.  Here I’ve stitched tone-on-tone with colored cardstock and thread for a bright and pretty springtime thank you card.

  • Die-cut Pink Sand, Dahlia, and Rainforest Cardstock using the Stitched Flowers Die Set.
  • Stitched the flowers and leaves with coordinating embroidery thread for a tone-on-tone look.
  • Trim a piece of Waterfall Cardstock to 4.25” x 5” and emboss it using the Diamond Plaid Embossing Folder.
  • Stamp a sentiment from the Sentiments For You Stamp Set in teal ink onto white cardstock.
    • Die-cut the sentiment out using the medium oval outer rim and insert dies from the Fluted Classics Ovals Die Set, positioning the sentiment towards the top of the die-cut.

Stitched Kaleidoscope Strip

Talk about versatility…the Stitched Kaleidoscope Strip can be layered up in different colors, trimmed to fit all kinds of card sizes, and added in multiples for an infinite number of possibilities!  Here I used two full-length strips to create a border for this bright slimline birthday card.

Stitched Petal Frame

The Stitched Petal Frame Die Set is an amazing design if you really love stitching, but also creates the most beautiful textured background for any kind of card when left as-is.  I enjoyed adding some soft springtime colors to this design for a simple friendship card.
