Taylored Expressions April Preview – Quilted Stitches

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a preview from Taylored Expressions‘ April 7 release. Although I don’t stitch (at all), I love needlepoint/quilt/cross-stitch themes, so I truly enjoyed creating with these new stamps and dies.

I’ve used Quilted Cover Plate, Little Bits Needle & Thread dies and A Thousand Stitches sentiment set.

To create my patchwork “quilt” I first used the Quilted Cutting Plate to die-cut Sugar Cube card stock. I adhered the stitched outline only onto a block of X-Press It Adhesive Sheet. I then die-cut the patterned paper (from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. I love this paper! So pretty! Once the patterned pieces were cut, I used a pick-up tool (stick with a slightly tacky end) to pick up and easily place each piece into its corresponding space.

After die-cutting the spool, I layered Copic markers (to create a perfect match to the patterned paper), adhered the die-cut “thread” then wrapped string around, carefully inserting the needle as I wrapped.

Copic markers (on spool) – Y21, YG91, YG00

The sentiment, was stamped onto Sugar Cube card stock then die-cut using Stitched Square Stacklets.

  1. A beautiful card and I love the needle & thread, a great job Michele!

  2. I really love the background paper that you have chosen and it looks so nice with the crisp white cardstock die cut. The needle and thread are a perfect accompaniment.

  3. I am not familiar with Taylored Expressions products. I would like to make a card similar to your Quilted Wishes card. How do I purchase the products?

    • Taylored Expressions’ new stamps and dies will be available for purchase on Thursday, 4/7. You can find links to the TE store as well as the TE blog in my post above. Thanks!

  4. Beautiful card. I love the patterned paper you used. I’ve only seen this card with the smaller-sized sentiments, and I really like the look of the larger one. Thank you for sharing.
