I don’t know about you but I am not a needlework crafter. I will mend some pants and I have sewn curtains but when it comes to the finer points of embroidery and cross-stitch I don’t have the patience for that. So I wasn’t taken with the Needlepoint Nook Suite in the Occasions Catalogue initially.
For Wednesday’s WOW! #60 I thought we would have a closer look at this suite. I have to say it has me intrigued now. You have to have a closer look at the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. It is actual photos of embroidery. They are beautifully done. You can see the original work in this video below. Take the time to check it out and have a closer look a the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
Below is the Needlepoint Nook Bundle containing the Needle and Thread stamp set and the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies. The stamp set is a Distinktive style of stamp so you will be able to achieve more depth in the image when you stamp it to make it more realistic looking. And it does do that.
If you see the dotted die in the bottom right corner you will notice with the dots it won’t cut your card but create a “stitched” effect on your cards which is great for backgrounds. Check them in the sample cards at the bottom.
The Needlepoint Nook DSP has realistic “embroidered” images on one side and on the other side is a simple stitched print.
Samples courtesy of Stampin’ Up! Aren’t they pretty?
So now if you are like me and not in to needlework you can get the look of it with the paper and stamps. How clever!
You can grab the Needle and Thread Suite which includes the Stamp set and the dies for $80 AUS. Add a pack of the Needlepoint Nook DSP for $19.25 and you can grab your choice of Sale-A-Bration item.
