Welcome to the April 2019 Artisan Blog Hop!
The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see! I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs! This blog hop will feature the Needlepoint Nook Suite from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!
My random thought: I almost didn’t order this suite…I debated, and debated…but I am so glad I stopped debating…because I love it and all the creations and inspiration from the rest of the 2019 Artisan’s. This suite is retiring on June 3rd, or while supplies last…so if you like what you see, order soon!
If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here! I am so very honored. I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too!
The Needlepoint Nook Suite consist of the Needle & Thread Bundle, Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons, Old Olive Linen Thread & Needlepoint Nook Cardstock Pack. All are discontinued and only available until June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last.
The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper is so nice because it offers so many varieties of color combinations. I decided to use the beautiful and bright piece of stitched Poppy Parade. Lately my creations have been using a lot of white, so I decided to go with a drastic change and add a nice bright pop of color.
Cut a piece of the Poppy Parade Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 5 3/4 x 10. Score at 5/8, 5, 5 5/8, . Fold at the score lines and slide into the Acetate Card Box.
Wrap an 11″ piece of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the Acetate Card Box, adhering end-to-end (so it will be hidden under the focal image) with a Mini Glue Dot.
Wrap 3 loops of Old Olive Linen Thread around the Poppy Parade Ribbon, securing as shown with a bow.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the leaf images & sentiment in Old Olive Ink, large flowers in Poppy Parade Ink, and smaller flowers in Crushed Curry Ink. Crop with a Die Cutting Machine, Plate and coordinating dies from the Needlepoint Elements Dies Set (Part of the Needle & Thread Bundle). Layer and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Pretty Label Punch to crop the sentiment (the dies only emboss and stitch). Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Tie pieces of Old Olive Linen Thread to the center of three Needlepoint Nook Buttons. Adhere to the center of the flowers with Mini Glue Dots.
Add Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Flower Sequins as shown. Color Pearl Basic Jewels with a Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Marker. Adhere to the center of the flower sequins.
I love all the color options offered in this Designer Series Paper. Stampin’ Up!’s samples in the graphic below is the perfect example of the multitude of bright or subtle colors you can use with this suite. I am anxious to create another Acetate Card Box with the blue butterfly design from this Designer Series Paper Set.

The cards that created to slip inside the Acetate Card Box mimic the look and feel of the decor I used on the box. I stuck with the same colors, shapes and elements, but added a few more options available in the bundle. Do you see that Designer Series Paper playing peek-a-boo on the sides of the card? It is the same Designer Series Paper used on the Acetate Card Box but since it was so prominent on the box, I decided to make it subtle on the card.
Don’t you love that stitched design on the card layer? So easy to create with the die included in the bundle!
Cut a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
Cut a piece of the Poppy Parade Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
Cut a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Wrap with a piece of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon adhering with Snail to the backside.
Use a Clear Block A to stamp the small flowers in Crushed Curry Ink. Crop with a Die Cutting Machine, plate and coordinating dies. Crop the additional pieces shown using the dies: label, leaves (Needlepoint Elements) and Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper.
Wrap Old Olive Linen Thread around the Poppy Parade Ribbon, threading and tying via the ends of the label die cut.
Use a Clear Block G to stamp “friend” in Versamark Ink onto Vellum Cardstock. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Use a Die Cutting Machine and the stitched dies to surround the sentiment. Crop with the Pretty Label Punch. Crop a piece of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper with the Pretty Label Punch. Adhere together with Mini Glue Dots.
Use a Clear Block G to stamp the “Happiest Birthday” in Old Olive Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. Trim to size & flag the end with the Classic Label Punch.
Assemble all die cuts as shown, adhering with Mini Glue Dots. Mini & Regular Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use a Clear Block A to stamp the butterflies in Poppy Parade Ink. Add Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Flower Sequins as shown. Color Pearl Basic Jewels with a Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. Adhere to the center of the sequins.
