Four Ways To Use Essential Stitching Dies

Today I’m sharing four ways to use the Essential Stitching Dies from  The new Essentials By Ellen Stitching dies perfectly coordinate with the Essential Shape Dies previously released from  Essential stitching dies are so versatile…you’re going to be amazed at all the ways you can use them!  When combined with the Essential Shapes, the possibilities are limitless!

It’s Carissa Wiley here with you today.  I have four projects to share with you featuring four ways to use the Essential Stitching Dies.  I’ll be combining these dies with some of the newest stamp sets from the Essentials By Ellen line, which are set to release on February 26th!  You’re going to get a great sneak peek today!

When I started playing with the Essential Stitching Dies, my mind started to run wild with possibilities.  I’m sure you’ll think of so many ways to use these dies.  I would love for you to share your ideas in the comments below.

Be sure to check out today’s video tutorial.  I’ll walk you through the creation of these cards and share four ways to use these Essential Dies on your next project.

You can use the Essential Stitching Dies to

  1.  Add stitching to felt and cardstock
  2. Make a string art card
  3. Add details to your Essential Shapes (no stitching necessary!)
  4. Add foil details to your card projects
  5. Create a unique background
  6. Emboss or deboss a pattern on your card…

That’s just a few ways to use them and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed these projects.  Which is your favorite?  Let me know in the comments below.  Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day!

    I love the piñata card! This is a really cute release and I am ready for Friday! I can’t decide if I want to jump over to the stitching life but I could see how these dies can be used without a single stitch being made.
