Introducing Candlewick Classics Blog Hop/Giveaway



Hi Friends, last month we introduced the "Candlewick Sampler Collection" and this month we are introducing a small companion collection that drives home that sweet Candlewick look.  We introduce these so that there is a central place you can see them and how they are used; we hope you will welcome "Candlewick Classics".  If you loved Hemstitch Classics like Hemstitch Rectangles then you'll love the individual new dies options in the 6 die collection.  These are basics you'll definitely want to have in your stash this year.

A Bit About Candlewick Classics

Nowhere does the candlewick look and feel come through more than on the Candlewick Classics.  It's a delicate look reminiscent of actual Candlewicking and punctuated by the rounded motifs that imply french knots.  Candlewick Classics are classic square, circle, oval and rectangle label shapes that are bordered with the candlewick motif in the most useful card making sizes.  They also mix and match with the Hemstitch Classics. 

What is Candlewicking?  Browse the google images found when searching "Candlewicking" and you will see that it is a type of whitework embroidery normally done on cream or white fabric embellished with cream or white french knots.  The series of french knots create the outlines of the pattern giving it a unique look while adding a touch of elegance.  In these dies, you can see rounded motifs that hint at the texture of dots.  Without overpowering, it's a sweet little detail present on all the dies in the collection.  Plus, it just happens to be the perfect spot to place a pearl.  Google candlewicking and you'll see exactly what we mean.

Today I'm introducing Candlewick Ovals S5-401



Candlewick Classics is another one of my favorite collections that was designed by Becca Feeken and for things like stamping or stickers these Oval dies are truly going to be a huge staple in your stash of dies to use.  I had an adorable stamp put away last year so this die was perfect to use for my card project today to send to my daughter this year.

My Projects For Today:


I really wanted to bring this die to life with lots of glamour so i used a base of pale pink and gold to start my card and then over that i layered the largest piece of the Candlewick oval over a white shadow of the same die.  Then inside that i stamped a pretty sentiment on pale ivory in black and carefully set that inside of the gold frame.  I used lots of rhinestones around the outside edges and added a simple pink ribbon bow with a handmade flower to match.  I really love this die !!

And for my Second Project:


For my second project i created a little basket with chipboard from my stash and covered the back and front with some beautiful Country papers that i found from Prima.  It has a dozen little matching cards in it that I made that can be sent for Thank you's, Hello or even a birthday.  But the best part is that they are all in one easy place to find them. And when you get really busy and need a quick card to send it's the best thing ever.....



I really love all the new classics dies and each of them can be used in so many ways.  This note caddy will be such a great gift for someone this year.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
