Hi Friends, last month we introduced Candlewick Sampler 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 evaluate for your stash plus they layer seamlessly onto Candlewick Sampler Dies.
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 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.
My Projects For Today
I’m introducing S5-399 Candlewick Rectangles
I so love Hemstitch Rectangles, it has been a go-to die for me for years. I kind of felt like it needed a sister, or something else I could use every now and again. Enter Candlewick Classics, the little sister to Hemstitch Classics. It gives me a fresh new look to the classic layering I’ve been doing for the past couple of years. While Hemstitch are tiny boxes reminiscent of the look of that needle application on linen, Candlewick is round and romantic and looks like tiny little knots. Because I’ve been dying to, I topped them all off with pearls. I won’t do that every time but for the the first time out, I thought it befitting :-)
Here is the detail up close :-) You can either cut frames or you can have a solid panel. I love the texture and the fact that you can layer another color behind your panel and it makes the detail just pop!
