[Technique] Faux Bejeweling with Cross Stitch Stamps by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new technique video to share. This week I have a new spin on Waffle Flower’s cross stitch stamp sets. In today’s video I combine Nuvo Jewel Drops with several WF cross stitch stamp sets (Stitched Cacti, Stitched Cup for Tea, Stitched Peonies) to create a fun bejeweled look.

First, I stamped a cactus from the Stitched Cacti Stamp Set in distress oxides (cracked pistachio, twisted citron, abandoned coral, wild honey). Then with Nuvo Jewel Drops, I made small drops on each one of the x’s in the image with the corresponding jewel drop color (Key Lime, Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello).

Once the drops were dry I added Black Tie Enamel Accents to the eyes. When the entire image was dry, I fussy cut the cactus out. I then stamped a sentiment from the Hello Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto a yellow A2 top-folding card base (4.25” x 11”, scored and folded at 5.5”). Lastly, I added the cactus with foam tape.


For these two cards, I used all the same distress oxide inks as before except I didn’t use Wild Honey and stamped the pots in WF’s Daydreaming Dye Ink instead. I used all the same Nuvo Jewel Drops as previously with the addition of Sea Breeze for the pots. I also used a sentiment from the Hoppy Stamp Set.


For this card I used the Stitched Cup of Tea Stamp Set and WF inks Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, You Said What, and Oh Happy Day for the images.

I used Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello and Rosewater Nuvo drops and the sentiment is from the Books & Coffee Stamp Set.


For this last card, I used the Stitched Peonies Stamp Set with WF inks Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, and Oh Happy Day and Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio for the leaves and stems. This stamp set has a matching die so I used the die instead of fussy cutting these flowers. 

I also used Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello, Rosewater, and Key Lime Nuvo drops and the Embroidered Greeting for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!
