Question inexpensive stitched rectangle dies?

I finally got some stitched circles a few weeks ago, but I really want some stitched rectangles too.

I'm trying to do some price comparisons, but there are so many out there now that I'm getting a little lost. Suggestions as to which brand is least expensive, and/or who sells the cheapest ones?

I don't own any stitched type dies, but have researched them a bit. They are pretty pricey, mostly $24-$25 and up for a set.

That's why I don't have any, lol.

I hope someone will post about an inexpensive set they've found.

I longed for these for quite a while, but realized that I'm really happier with the pierced look than the stitched look. I have this set and I really love it. Maybe it's worth considering in the meantime? The largest rectangle is an exact A2 card front.

Hmmmm...I have all of the stitched and pierced ftom MFT and Lil Inker. I love ll of them. I lovevthe look of both on cards. Oh and the ones with the ////// around the outside as well as the ones with the xxxxx around the outside. Im noticing more and more companies coming out with dies like this so pethaps the prices will go down soon.

I bought the lil inker rectangles A2 - 6 dies. For one thing, I have yet to make a card out of them. Secondly, wow they have gone sky high in price. I'm pretty sure I would not pay above $18 at the very most for those dies.

I do have a die set from Paper Smootches that has the various types of stitch look, but they are just one metal line. I haven't used those yet either... This might be a much cheaper way to get somewhat of a stitched look.

One thing I noticed recently is the cost of Spellbinder Majestic and decorative dies have gone way up in price now. I was shopping for die sets at around $12, now they want $14-$20 for them. I think it's because of the holidays coming up that the prices have gone up.

Saw Jennifer McGuire use those dies on a card and I loved them! Are they hard to line up if you wanted to "stitch" all around an element? It's always a small nightmare for me if I have to make any border line up on a card...

Well, you bring up a good point. I watched JM video (where I usually have Amazon.com open on the next tab) and saw her use these dies. She had the right idea. Use them as an accent on the card.

You could easily create a shim to ensure exact placement on the sides of the card.

But you get one piece of metal the length of a pencil (or around that long). You can line that up on each side and run it through the Big Shot 4 times, but it will create a cross hatch of stiches in the corner because the die is longer than the card. The die doesn't turn the corner like the stitched die sets you buy. If you stitched 2 sides only, then it would work great (top and bottom, or top and one side).

So if you don't mind the look that each stitched line will be from top to bottom of your card, and you don't mind running it through the machine 4 times, than I would do that until after Janaury (because I really do think prices will drop then).

I belong to a facebook group called scrapbook deals. it's a private group for buying or selling scrapbook supplies, new and used. If you apply they'll let you in. there's a woman on there with her own line of dies and stamps. her name is gina steimel. her line is called gina marie designs. she has stitched dies in a number of shapes. her rectangle ones are only $10 for 10 dies. Largest is 4 inches wide. I don't know how tall they are. She charges $2.50 for shipping no matter how much you order.

Thank you for sharing that FB page. I checked it out and it looks interesting.

Thanks so much for the link to the Scrapbook Outlet site. I just ordered the stitched rectangle and stitched oval dies. Great price, and their shipping is so reasonable, only $2.75! What a deal.

Wow. This is better than the set I got from Lil Inkers. Good find.
