Today I am sharing how to make a window with the Sting Art in the center. I am using the Stitched Star Dies. I did the video and cards for SplitCoastStamper last week. Maybe you saw the tutorial on SplitCoastStampers. You can click here to view SplitCoastStamper. I was the Guest Tutorial Author there last week.
I have the how-to video below or you can view it on my YouTube Channel.

Tips to do the Sting Art with Stitched Dies
This is so simple the hard work is done for you when you use stitched die. My best advice is ONLY stitching in every other stiched and using a small gauge thread and needle. If you choose to do every stitched you risk to tear the cardstock in between each stitched.
For the window, I suggest having a smaller die for the card base and one size bigger for the layer that you stitched on. For the card base, I use the 2½ star and the layer is the 3″
You may ask how much thread to use for the stitching? I say about 2 yards is the MAX that I would do at a time, if you use more then 2 yards it wants to tangle all together. In the video, I show how to attach the thread in the back in-between each string.
Sting Art Window Showcase
I just place a piece of Coastal Cabana to showcase the string better in a photo.
The starts in the background are stamped with the White Craft ink. You may notice the smeared ink. Well, DO NOT touch right after you stamp for a while. White Craft ink takes time to dry or you can heat set with the heat tool.
I love the window so when they open the card you still see the beautiful work.
Shape String Art
This is done the same way every other stitch. So you can do the negative of the die-cut for the window and the start itself. This set of the die has stitched on both the negative and the die-cut.
