Today on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I’m sharing an awesome card project using the Spellbinders Stitch Petal Frame Die. I am completely obsessed with all things embroidery and stitching, so when I learned that companies like Spellbinders offer a full line of stitch dies, I had to “add to cart” and get my hands of some of these awesome products!
Stitching on a card or a scrapbook layout is a great way to add tons of texture and interest to a project. For this card, all you need is the Petal Stitch Frame Die, a die cutting machine, your favorite floss, and a needle. I highly recommend grabbing a nice cup coffee or tea as you enjoy the relaxing process of stitching this beauty design.
For this project, I had a lot of fun making a set of cards that feature warm and cool tones using DMC floss. You can stitched the entire panel, but you can certainly opt to stitch only part of the panel or not at all. The panel looks great on it’s own and can add a lot of texture to a card project!
To see how this card came together and how to stitch this panel, click on the following video! A list of products featured in this video are provided below. I hope you are inspired to stitch on your next card project!

Come join me today at 2:00 pm CST on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel for Wednesday LIVE! During today’s live stream, I will be playing with the new Pink and Main Flock, an awesome product that adds a fuzzy texture to any craft project!
I had the pleasure of meeting Pink and Main owner Michelle Currie at the 2022 Creativation Trade Show in Orlando, FL and filmed a quick Facebook Live for Scrapbook and Cards Today that featured some of Pink and Main’s new products. To see the recorded live, click HERE!
On display were several stunning projects that featured the Pink and Main Flock. I love anything that is textured and couldn’t get enough of the flock material! It’s like running your fingers over crushed velvet! Of course, pictures don’t do it justice!
During today’s live stream, I’m going to play with the Flock using Pink and Main Double-Sided adhesive, stencils, and gloss gel.

For this blog hop, I created two fun cards using inks and dies from Catherine Pooler Designs! A full list of available products are listed at the end of this blog post.
Catherine Pooler stamps, inks, and dies make creating cards a breeze! For this project, I used a direct to paper technique using CP inks!
Starting with a 4.25 x 5.5 inch white card panel, I applied Catherine Pooler stamping inks directly to the panel, creating a vertical strip of color from the top to the bottom of the panel. Each color overlaps slightly, creating an interesting color blending effect!
For my second card, I repeated this same technique using the front of a 4.25 x 5×5 inch card base.
Next, I ran the inked panel and one solid white 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel through my Gemini die cutting machine using the Catherine Pooler Wall Flowers Cover Plate Die.
The both panels were adhered to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.
For the sentiment, I used the “We’re All in This Together” printable by Catherine Pooler. This printable was created to spread joy and encouragement during the current pandemic. To grab this FREE printable, click HERE!
Using the Picture Frame Die by Catherine Pooler, I die cut the sentiment and adhered it to the front of the panel for both cards. For the first card, I created a layered design using black card stock to frame the printable.
For a finishing touch, I stamped and die cut small flowers using the Catherine Pooler Whipped This Up Stamp Set and the Whipped This Up Dies.
I hope the projects in this blog hop bring you joy and inspire you to create something beautiful for a friend or loved well!
