Introducing Candlewick Classics | New Giveaway

Amazing Paper Grace S5-399 Candlewick Rectangles - see more information at
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.

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!

I was 12 at the time. So I love these dies as they remind me of my first needle work projects. Becca, your card is truly romantic and the papers are so lovely. Your bows are ALWAYS perfect.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    I’m so delighted to see you featuring these dies. I have several of the hemstitch dies and they are sooooo useful! I definitely want to have these in my collection, as well. I love that they can be used as backgrounds or a focal piece. Changing their orientation brings more versatility to the mix.

    Hello Becca, I’m go glad you released the Candlewick Classic Collection. When I viewed the card you showed to launch the blog hop, I was so happy. It had pearls everywhere! I love it when you do pearls! And, as you pointed out, the dies make places to put pearls. That will make it much easier for my arthritic hands to operate the tweezers! Win-win! Your card was, as usual, gorgeous, very stylish and much needed as a staple in anyone’s stash. Thanks for continuing to design such wonderful dies and share your incredible talent with us all.ReplyCancel
