Introducing Candlewick Sampler | Giveaway

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace- Candlewick Sampler by Becca Feeken using S4-1018 Candlewick Petticoats for details see
Hi Friends, it’s always exciting when I get to introduce a new collection.  Collections are groups of dies that work together instead of ‘one of a kind dies’ like my Die of the Month. These dies come in several formats but have a similar look and feel and have matching elements.  Today, I’m excited to give a little peek into a new collection and tell you the inspiration behind it.  Join us as we share lovely creations made using Candlewick Sampler  (definition below).

The Inspiration Behind Candlewick Sampler

Since the age of 12 I’ve loved fiber!!!!  I sew quilts, knit, crochet, love cross stitch and before becoming a Licensed Die Designer I sewed most of my own clothes. I’ve always been fascinated with intricate textures and the look of laces, fabrics and embroidery.  It’s my dream to combine the fabric and fiber world with my love of dies.  I often try to replicate the look and feel of those textures in dies.  Candlewicking has such a distinct and elegant look and if you’ve loved my lace look collections or that elegant look of Hemstitch, you’ll love 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

I’m introducing  S4-1018 Candlewick Petticoats

Here is what the plate actually looks like.

Candlewick Petticoats is one of my favorite new dies.  It was designed to be a topper or you can use the pretty bracket edge on the flap of a card and layer the petticoat under the edge as I’ve done on my card.

    Good morning Becca. I love Candlewicking and taught it for many years. I also handstitched a 30 square queen size bedspread now 16 years ago which still looks lovely on my bed. It took approximately 1500 hours to make. I therefore love your new die and look forward to seeing others in the collection. Many thanks, JanReplyCancel

    This is a GORGEOUS NEW RELEASE, Becca! LOVE the names you give your dies too! They make me FEEL like I’m IN ANOTHER TIME! A much simpler time, but a time when the needle works were a part of every woman’s life! LOVE EVERYTHING!!! EVERYONE did a FABULOUS JOB with their creations! AND your card is GORGEOUS AS WELL! I’ve chosen a FEW FAVORITES! LOL I like to sew, embroider & knit, with knitting being the #1 favorite of the needlework. I’ve done it since I was young–8th grade, back when they had Home Ec., & you even learned to cook! LOL SUCH A GREAT RELEASE, Becca!!! ;)<3ReplyCancel

    Good Day Becca ! these are beautiful dies
    You will probably be not impressed as I can’t
    sew to save my life !
    My Mum made my wedding dress and most of
    my clothes as a child including knitting my warm
    jumpers ,cardigans, mittens etc!
    At school my sewing teacher was also my cookery
    teacher top of the class cookery BOTTOM of the
    class sewing I am ashamed to say ……
    But I do remember having a candlewick bedspread
    it was a raised textured material wonder if that is
    any relation to your candlewick lol
