  1. Love the embroidered greetings! Adds an awesome look to the cards!
    I have some stamps with a faux stitched detail, and some dies with a stitched detail that I have used on my cards.

  2. Love that knitting sheep. I have done stitched cards, but not for a while. I used template and pierced my card and stitched and beaded. Very time consuming but it does look lovely.

  3. I love how you used my favorite Lawn fawn sheep again. Perfect with these stitchings. I like to cut a heart in the front of a card and then stitch back and forth to make sort of a web. Hard to explain and sounds weird but it usually turns out pretty good.

  4. Beautiful projects!! Love them all – and great video!!

    I loved using my sewing machine for stitched details, but haven't done that in quite a while – this die is perfect!!

  5. I've never added stitched details to my cards before, even though I do embroidery and cross stitch. After today's inspiration I think I'll be giving it a go though 🙂

  6. I don't usually add any stitching detail to my projects (although I have done a few things to scrapbook pages in the past). Thanks for sharing these fun ideas!!

  7. I have always used stitched dies but your embroidered dies will make it easy to incorporate twine, yarn, strings, etc.. Perfect way to add dimension and texture to a card. Plus, it is so darn cute!

  8. I have never done anything like that on my cards, I will have to try it. I have always used a white jell pen. Thanks for the great video Kelly, and thank you everyone for sharing your ideas with us!! 😉😊

  9. These are very fun! I especially like the knitting ewe, too cute. I have made embroidered cards were you pierce holes and follow a pattern to create the design.

  10. Really cute ideas. The only stitching I have tried on cards is machine stitching.

    A cross-stitch tip is to not knot your thread, but leave the tail long and stitch over it on the back. There is less bulk and it's hidden and clean.

  11. I don't normally add stitching because I don't have somewhere to leave my sewing machine out all the time. But I'm really excited about these dies and trying some hand stitching.

  12. The few times I've added stitched details to my crafts, it's been in the form of making decorative knots around a bouquet of flowers, or using a similar technique to what you show here, but with hearts for valentines. I'd like to explore this technique more, and these dies will help!

  13. I have stitched borders and designs with my Sew-Easy, but I have these dies and I'm anxious to try them. Looking forward to watching the video to see your techniques! Love the DT cards. All are just gorgeous!

  14. I usually stitch things before I add them to a project with glue. But I have poked holes in cardstock and done a little stitching. Having a die that makes the holes even would be awesome! Love all the cute samples!

  15. I've never added stitched details to a card. The only stitching-related thing I've done with cards is to make cards out of cross-stitched pieces that I've done.

  16. These are fabulous! I especially like the little lambs that look as though they've knit the sentiments!

    I used to stitch a fair number of borders (which I'd have to say is my favourite – or only! – stitching technique), but with so many dies out now, that's something I just haven't done! I'd love to give the stitched sentiments a go though!

  17. Loved your video! I basically use dies to make stitching on my cards. I have crochet a little on a card and at one time cross-stitched, but lately it is just dies.

  18. That card with the stitching sheep is just beyond cute! I like the texture that the stitching adds.
    When I add stitching to cards, I either hand sew or machine sew.

  19. I've never added stitching to my cards, but these dies are so cute and make it look so easy, I might have to get them so I can try. I really like the card you made with the "knitting sheep." It is so much fun!!

  20. The embroidered word dies are so creative. I love the look of both faux and actual stitching. It is one of my favorite ways to embellish. The cards from the DT are fantastic.

  21. I love hand sewing and embrodery especially!! Have been sewing since I was 5!!! My grandmothers taught me and later my mom "allowed" me start sewing on her machine when I was 9! Sewed dolls dresses, and myself, and started sewing for others when I was 15. After having kids I really slowed down on that and went into scrapbooking and cardmaking. It's now been YEARS other than sewing the curtains for my houses. But alas, I now LOVE the hand stitching and embrodery for fun on my sb pages. Life always returns to our roots.

  22. What wonderful use of stitching on these projects. honestly although I love the look of real stitching because of time constraints I find myself using either stitching line dies or my white gel pen to put faux stitching on my projects.

  23. At this time I'm using stitched Dies to add faux stitching but would love to use embroidery thread with your new dies in the future. So cute and creative! ❤️

  24. I have used stencils with stitch designs to pierce my card and stitch them. I love Lawn Fawn dies since they save the step of having to do the paper piercing.

  25. I do faux stitching with my Gel Markers, I use my sewing machine, I use stencils and once in a blue moon I'll pierce my own project and hand sew it up.
    LOVE today's inspiration…so cute and will be trying it on my scrap book pages too!
    Thanks so much for all the great inspiration!

  26. I don't add stitched details to my crafts…yet! I now have both of these dies ( I love to embroider ) and lots of ideas thanks to your fantastic design team.

  27. These are all great… I don't add much stitching to my cards. I would love to do more. I am an avid crosstitcher so I would love the mix the two crafts more. I usually just add a fine tip pricking tool to make a pattern and stitch it. not really a sustainable process.

  28. I really enjoy Inspiration Week, I love the videos! In a perfect world there would be a daily video!!��And I would have one of each Lawn Fawn product!! ❤️❤️❤️

  29. I have added some stitching to my cards by using/tracing tiny candy/cookie cutter shapes and then poking holes with a needle for the thread or floss. Time consuming but fun when the kids are out of school.

  30. I really like the look when embellishments, photos, and borders are stitched to cards and scrapbook pages. It gives them a handmade touch and always looks cute. In the projects featured above I love the sheep knitting, too cute!

  31. I've bought a number of the faux stitched edge dies which gives a quick, crisp stitched look to my cards but I haven't really sewn on any yet. I have sewn on numerous scrapbook pages though using my sewing machine or by hand. It's great when adding layers.

  32. Adorable! My favorite way to add stitching detail is with Lawn Fawn stitched dies. I use my stitched rectangles, squares and circles all the time.

  33. These dies will be so helpful! The knitting sheep is adorable!
    I love the look of hand-stitching on my projects, but it is time-consuming. I usually end up penciling in a design, then painstakingly punch the holes for stitching. Sometimes, I even "cheat" and just do pen lines instead of thread/floss. Nothing beats the hand-stitched look, though…the results are lovely!

  34. Lovely cards!
    I'm not much of a needlewoman…so the stitched dies are my go to tool when I want to add stitched details to cards. At times I use my gel pen for faux stitching as well. 🙂

  35. i have to admit i haven't really played much with adding stitching to my cards despite buying a craft sewing machine and having some of the we r memory keepers stitcher products from years ago….

  36. I love the look of stitching on cards.Most of the time, I use the look of faux stitching with dies but am excited to see thse dies that are meant to be used for actual stitching.

  37. Personally I like the dies that do the stitching for me! I have a whole set of stitching tools that lay nicely in their container and never come out to play. Maybe some day guys.

  38. I love sewing, crocheting, and knitting, so I love the look of sewing on cards, though I have to say, faux stitching made by dies is my favorite because it is so fast and easy – though I do enjoy stitching on the cards themselves or around the borders from time to time for special people as well. 🙂

  39. I don't usually put stitched details on my crafts because it can be a lot of work coming up with a design, but I love the idea of your dies. I sure hope that you plan to come out with more dies like this in more words!

  40. I love adding stitching to cards. I think it adds something extra to the cards. Plus the recipient is always amazed by the end result. I like adding simple stitching to complicated stitched designs. These two dies look like it will make adding stitching so much easier!

  41. I hand stitched my cards a few times for the boarders and sentiments but had to pierce the card first then stitch. It take a while to do so. With these dies they will make it a lot quicker!

  42. I hand stitched my cards a few times for the boarders and sentiments but had to pierce the card first then stitch. It take a while to do so. With these dies they will make it a lot quicker!

  43. Now this is right up my alley! I would so hand stitch these on cards. I hate to sit an punch holes to stitch though and usually use faux stitching on cards. Sew cute!

  44. My favorite way to add stitched details is with stitched dies because I don't currently have a sewing machine! And although using a metal ruler and a craft pick works too, it kinda hurts my hands 🙁 Thanks for the chance to win!

  45. I have tried to used my machine to add stitching to my cards but have not been super successful. Mostly I just use dies with faux stitching or I use a Micron pen to add it to borders. But I love the Thanks and Hello stitched dies!

  46. I used to do a lot of machine sewing on my layouts and cards, need to do that again. I haven't done any hand stitching but I really need to try it.

  47. I'm not sure I have a favourite way to add stitched details, because I haven't tried this yet. But it reminds me a lot of when I was young in grade school and we would do sewing pictures tracing letters and images! I do like to create stitched borders sometimes with pen on my homemade cards! 🙂

  48. The main way I add stitching details on my cards is by using dies that have the stitching details added. It's not the same as real stitching, which I would love to do if I had a sewing machine, but it still adds a very subtle but wonderful detail to the cards I make!

  49. Every single one of these cards are so beautiful! I love the stitched details, but i can honestly say that I've never done this on any of my cards. This is definitely inspiration to give it a try!

  50. Many years ago, i added stitched borders to my cards, but it was a bit of a pain as i had to go into another room, set up the sewing machine etc. These dies are great and would make adding stitching so easy.

  51. Such a fun way to add an unexpected detail! I began card making by hand punching and then embroidering the card stock. This is such a simple way to add that extra something!

  52. I love adding stitched details to my projects with Lawn Fawn stitched dies or a gel pen. Hopefully, I will be able to get these dies someday. They look so awesome!

  53. SEW SWEET! There is something extra special about hand stitching … so many precious memories too!
    When sewing on cards, I either pierce or punch tiny holes and stitch it by hand with thread or embroidery floss 🙂

  54. I have to say – I was initially not a big fan of these dies, but some of the inspiration projects above totally made me change my mind! I would love to add real sewing/stitching details on my cards, but I'm not savvy enough in terms of my sewing machine. So instead, I either add stitching details by hand with pens/markers, or I use your handy dandy border dies to do so 🙂 Plus, I love all of the shaped/stackable dies with stitching details, your cross-stitched squares being on the top of my list…

  55. I loooove my stitched dies!
    almost every card has a die stitch around them!
    With real dread I actually never work..
    maybe I should try it!

  56. Oh my goodness – I want, I want!! I use Faux stitching mostly – but this way using a die would be totally over the moon way to add stitching to a creation – I just love what the DT has done with this die – TFS

  57. The only way I was able to add a stich ed effect on my cards before was with a white gel pen. I just got a paper piercer and am going to try this next, but would love to own the embroidered die set

  58. I've been a hand embroider since I could hold a needle but I was simply surprised when people started stitching on paper a lot. Why didn't I think of it?!

  59. So much fun! I love the sheep knitting with the sentiment. I've not yet had the confidence to try stitching onto my cards, but I do like to use dies with faux stitching 🙂
