Today String Art is using some Stitched Die. The Stampin’Up! stitched die are perfect for these sting art. They are a little bit more time consuming then the heart doilies that I share last week but still simple. If you miss last week post with the Heart Doilies click here to view.
Tips and trick when doing string art with stitched dies
I have a few tips and trick when using the stitched die to do the sting art. Here my best tips.
- ONLY pass the string in every other stitch. If going in every stitch it tend to rip.
- Use a fin needle
- When you go under with the string, first pock the needle at the top to enlarge the stitch, then go under. All is show in the video.
- Use tape to hold the stitch in the back. When you start and every time you start a new sting and finish.
- I recommend no more then 30″ inch of string at a time. Longer then 30″ tend to get all tangle.
This are my best tips and trick.
The Metallic Bow
The bow it about 12 loop on each side. The bow I call it “Billie Bow”. I have a older video if you want to see how this is done CLICK HERE. It is simple even for the one that are challenge at bow making. I wrap the thread around 2 of my fingers about 12 times and use another piece of thread to tie in the center. Voila! you have a amazing fully bow.
- Whisper White 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ card base
- Designer Paper 5¼ x 4
- Basic Black or Whisper White, Stitched So Sweet rectangle 3-1/8 x 2
- Circle Rococo Rose 1¾ and Whisper White 1½
- Extra Strip Whisper White or Black 4 x 1
- Whisper White scrap for the butter fly
Both card are the same measurement. I just switch the layout top and bottom.
Here you can see clearly how it all flow together.The center is cool how it look like a big knot but it just how it cross all over.
Partial string for the butterfly.
When I was working on this one and was about to add another string I say the wing of a butterfly. I stop right there and added a butterfly in the center. So we surly don’t have to do every stitch to make a piece of sting art. I love how this turn out with the butterfly in the center. What you think? Should I done the entire piece?
