Adding Depth to Waffle Flower Stitched Cacti

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I am extremely excited to be here with you all at the Simon Says Stamp blog sharing a card I made with Waffle Flower Crafts’ newest products!

In this spring release, Waffle Flower has four cross-stitch inspired layering stamp sets that are seriously the bees knees! I have been having so so much fun playing with these stamp sets, they are just so fun to create with!

In my video I showcase my personal favorite out of all the cross-stitched sets, the Stitched Cacti Stamp Set. I will also feature the gorgeous new Patched Layers Die set as well! These dies are so cool because they add a beautiful blanket stitched border to your card panels which works perfectly with the new stitched stamp sets!


I will also demonstrate an amazing trick I learned that will help you to position your layering stamps perfectly and I will also demonstrate how I add depth to the stitched images with shading!
