Introducing Candlewick Sampler | Giveaway


If you're a "Gracelet" or by chance happened by the Amazing Paper Grace website over time, you have no doubt wondered how Becca comes up with her names and inspiration. Today, we're excited to give a little peek into a new collection and the inspiration. Join us as we share lovely creations made using Candlewick Sampler.


Since the age of 12 Becca has loved fiber - she quilts, knits, crochets, does cross stitch and before becoming a Licensed Die Designer sewed most of her own clothes. Fascinated with intricate textures and the look of laces, fabrics, and embroidery, Becca tried to replicate the look and feel of those textures in dies. Candlewicking has such a distinct look and Becca thrilled at the prospect of getting that look and feel into a die. If you've loved her lace look collections or that elegant look of Hemstitch, you'll love Candlewick Sampler.

The Inspiration Behind Candlewick Sampler

Candlewicking 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.


My Projects For Today
 

Here is what the die actually looks like.




 
For my project today I made a shaped card. I die cut the top of the card (it is a top fold card) with the top cutting die of one of the corner dies and then I layered the top with the same corner that I die cut with both edge dies. To create the bottom corner I die cut in my card base the decorative part of the corner and then layered it (both on 3D tape) with the corner that I die cut with both edge dies.




Leaves on my card are from this new die set and flowers are Spellbinders S4-892 - Cinch and Go Flowers IV.
