The dies are so versatile. Love the Twine and Bow die. You can add bows on your card without adding bulk now. The Story Book 1 die is great to create your own story scene on your card. The Stitched Speech Bubbles are perfect to add smaller sentiment to the scene. I have put together some projects using these gorgeous dies. It is going to be a long post. So make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
Here is my first card using the Twine and Bow die.
I simply die cut the die using coloured cardstocks and adhered on a white card front and added the corresponding coloured bows to it. I think this highlights the dies a lot. And to the bows I have added the iridescent sequins to its centre. The sentiment is from Birthday Messages from Simon Says Stamp which I white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered on the card front using foam adhesives.
I used Mama Elephant die to die cut a rectangle black panel with the stitched detail then used the Story Book 1 die to die cut the inside of the panel. This is my frame. I then diecut another white cardstock with the Story Book die and I am using the positive rectangle pieces. I masked and stamped the images from Under the Toadstool stamp set from Taylored Expressions. Then I copic coloured the images and also the background. I then inlaid the coloured panel in its place on the black frame with a supporting panel behind. This panel is mounted on a grey card base. Finally embellished with everyone’s favourite Sparkling Clear sequins.
This is special to me. Paulina emailed me asking if I want to put together a sequin mix. Oh my! Who wouldn’t, right? I was thrilled and said yes. So here is my sequins mix called Tropical Days Sequins mix. This is limited edition. So get it fast before it disappears.
You all know I am a bright girl. I love everything bold and bright. My mix has very pretty pinks, oranges, greens and even iridescent sequins which will make anybody happy 🙂 I made a shaker card using the Stitched Speech Bubble die set and my Tropical Days Sequins mix.
On this card, I have used the positive and negative of the Stitched Speech Bubble die set. With the negative of the die cut I made a cover plate and used it to make a shaker card. Then I stamped the sentiment on the positive speech bubble and added the layered flowers in coordinating colours. The flowers are from Bloomers 1 die set from Taylored Expressions.
