We are IN STITCHES Over This Fabulous New Release!

Hi Friends!  Have you been inspired by the stitches trend?  WE SURE ARE!  Our dear friend, Jennifer McGuire requested a series of stitched products  and we worked to bring them to life!  These are ideal for creating shaker card frames!  Be sure to check out her “My Favorite Crafty Things” Series which is going to start any day now.  It’s a highly anticipated list of her – yep, you guessed it – FAVORITE CRAFTY THINGS ;)

The rectangle, square and circle shaped wafer dies is part of a shaped series. The interesting thing about these dies is that the stitches are on both sides of the cut line. That means, depending on which paper piece you pull from the cut, you will have stitches to the left or right of your cut line. You can also use a magnetic die cutting plate or washi tape to customize the width of your frame in order to achieve shaker box frames. If you do not separate the dies, you can create several frames with stitches on each side of your cut lines


Notice how Shari Carroll used the Stitched Rectangle dies together in the card above to create a frame that has stitched lines next to both cut lines!?  She used 2 dies together for this effect.  You can see how her inside rectangle has stitched lines too- she used just one die to create the single line of stitches on the inside rectangle.


Samantha works behind the scenes at Simon every day making sure that Simon products are well cared for.  She ensures each one is properly packaged, stocked, and lovingly shipped to paper artists around the world.  As an avid card maker, Sam was so excited when these new IN STITCHES products came, that she created the card above.  (See our Instagram for more fun information about Samantha ;)  I love how she used the NEW Screen Elements heart die to create a background board for her to lace a heart with S + K inside!  I spy a Stitched Rectangle too!


In the card above, Shari used a Stitched Circles die on 2 pieces of cardstock and placed them together.  The die left stitches on the inside of the circle shape of one piece of cardstock and left stitches on the other side of the circle on the other piece of cardstock.  She created the hill with Simon’s Stitched Slopes and Hills dies.  Don’t you just love Shari’s eye candy in the background too!

The compete release is called IN STITCHES and is shipping now!  The release includes 4 sets of dies and 1 stencil.  At just $99.99, for the complete set, we think this release is the perfect stitch for your stash!!

Please comment below and welcome Sam into the card making community.  She is going to randomly select 1 person to win a Simon Says Stamp Goody Bag filled with new Valentine products that will be releasing in December!  Thank you for taking time to join us today to celebrate the new release!!

  1. what a fantastic release. I love stitched anything and these are just great basics. That stencil is too cute, too.

  2. Welcome Sam! I like how you used the stitches to look like Cross Stitching.
    The stitched rectangles would be perfect for making frames + layering.

  3. Stitched edges are so on trend right now. I just love them! I will most definitely have to add a few of these to my Wish List!

  4. I love the cards! They’re so inspiring. Since I’m making different cards for different friends and family I need all the inspiration I can get. Thank you for sharing them. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new dies.

  5. A big, BIG welcome to you, Sam! I can tell I’m going to like your style already! Nice choice of colors! Don’t you just LOVE the In Stiches dies? I can hardly wait on mine to arrive!

  6. Welcome Sam! Beautiful card! I used to do counted cross stitch before I caught the scrapbook bug, so this brought back lots of memories.

  7. LOVE absolutely LOVE these dies! Welcome to Sam, your card is fab and can I just say thank you because all my orders from Simon’s are always packed perfectly:D

  8. Welcome, Sam! Your beautiful card takes me back to my cross stitching days! I love the colors you chose and the gold embossing! Great job! I look forward to seeing more of your creations!

  9. I would love to see a video of these in action. They look so interesting. Not sure how you got just one line of stitching when the die looks like it has two with each piece.

  10. Welcome Samantha! Thanks for taking care of things behind the scenes with packing orders etc. – my items always arrive in perfect condition and are well-packaged for Australia which is very much appreciated :-)

    These new stitched dies look fantastic and unique. Definite ‘MUST HAVES’ for my die collection! Love the stencils too. I recently bought the SSS Falling Snow stencil and I just love it. It was my first time playing with embossing paste and a stencil and it was so easy (even if I was a little scared at first to try!) and the result was fantastic – turned out exactly how I wanted.

  11. Wow, trust Jennifer to love these LOL. Her favorite things become OUR favorite things :). This is said in nothing but love, but she is such and enabler LOL!
    The dies look fantastic and would love to own them! Thanks for showig them to us!

  12. Samantha, your card is great! I love the stitching on the heart die! I hope they will be sharing more of your cards with us!

    What a fantastic idea to have stitches on both sides! Brilliant! I really have noticed the absence of stitched dies from Jennifer’s card making. Thought maybe it was a trend she just didn’t care for, but thought it is she would hand draw stitches.

  13. Wish I earned dollars!!!! The SA rand is miserable at the moment – not to mention our postal service!!! Hope it all improves – FAST!

  14. The innovative double stitching on these dies makes me fall waly in love! The cards made with them are so cool! Count me in on the giveaway, ladies!

  15. Welcome to you Sam! The folks that are the bones of the company are not always seen or heard, so know that you are appreciated. Thanks for taking care of us! Loving these new stitched dies. Santa will be shopping!

  16. Just love the dies but please why can‘t we get them in the UK even thou they were released 9 months ago in fact we can’t get SS even on Amazon. Please put this right as there are loads of us who would love to use these products.

  17. I’m relatively new to card making and love the ideas inspired by your website! I’m looking forward to seeing some ideas for embroidery cards.

  18. OMG!!! I think the have fallen in love with these die cuts. Not sure when I can purchase, but WISH I HAD THEM for my remaining Christmas cards. All of can say is..,You have a winner!!!!! Pick me!!
