I have a card for you just now ahead of the release post that shows you how our new Stitched rectangle dies mat together. There are two sets of stitched rectangle dies - one with scallops and one with double stitched lines. The two sets work great independently, but I am ALWAYS looking for that extra usability factor and so I designed them to be compatible - check out the sample above to see how the scalloped rectangle provides a lovely mat for the plain stitched rectangles.
I love fine detail and sometimes I love neat narrow mats! In the past I have worked with die sets that were designed to mat with each other, but I felt that sometimes they were aimed at folks making scrapbook pages, which can be a much larger format than a standard size card. Sometimes I don't want a quarter inch mat....
So - how do you like my coffee set? - I have everything to match, which so does not reflect my real life situation - all my cups are mismatched at the moment, we had a few breakages during the move, - I'll get around to picking up a matching service at some point, but for now at least I can match in craft land! I adore this little coffee set - I stamped it all in red (Memento Rhubarb) and then I went in and added some pencil shading - I darkened down the handle of the coffee pot to make it look like one of those old retro bakelite handled pots. I'm in matchy matchy heaven with this card.
There is a co-ordinating die set with 10 dies for all of the main stamps. There are 48 stamps in this set, just couldn't squeeze a die for all of them....
Ok gotta run - loads to do - hopefully chat to you later!
