The Radiating Stitches Dies make my creative heart go pitter pat and are exclusively available on-line (not in a catalog) as part of the Stampin’ Up! On-Line exclusives. Today’s card really shows off their beautiful details and versatility! A definite “must-have” for my card making!
WHAT I LOVE! While the Radiating Stitches Dies are the star of the show, I’m highlighting oodles of retiring 2021-2023 In Colors (Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and Pale Papaya) products in this fun, geometric design. They have served me well but will be discontinued as of May 1 (and will likely sell out sooner). If you love these colors, please purchase them now!
