Split The Stamped Image (and Cyber Monday Sale)

 Hello friends!

colorful CAS design with you. 

I am using Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month and the Coordinating Die of the Month.

NOVEMBER CLUBS ARE NOW AVAILABLE. JOIN NOW THROUGH NOVEMBER 28TH TO RECEIVE THE PICTURED KIT.

Now it's even easier to join the club. You can now purchase club subscriptions and store products in the same checkout.

This month's "Diamond & Arch Motif" Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die set is perfect for making cards, decor, and more.

 I decided to create two different cards with similar design. Starting from inking up the image, I used Distress Oxide for this purpose

 My project today shows how you use use a large image in two simple ways.  The obvious way is to use the image as it is (like the focal point). 

HB -001

 The other way is simply cut up the image and use it as corners or borders. I used the 2nd image of the stamp (the one on the very top) and cut it in half.

 HB -002

 I took the advantage of the easy use of stamping and coordinating die. That delicate white-embossed "happy birthday" sentiment took it up to a new level.

HB -003

 The images were stamped on color paper with Distress Oxide (Vintage Photo) and that's it! Hope you find the ideas helpful.  Thank you for stopping by!

A Quick Way to Diecut and Winner Announcement

Hello friends!

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends and readers/followers. Hope you are enjoying the food, fun and family.  

Today's project was created with Build-a-Garden Dahlias. This card may look completed to create, but it really is quite easy.

Altenew-Build-A-Garden Dear Dahlias Stamp Set-Sentiment Strip 3 Stamp Set (2)

I took a short cut by using pattern paper for the flowers.

The pattern paper I used for the Dahlias are all out of stock. However, you can create your own blend of paper with inking techniques. 

Altenew-Build-A-Garden Dear Dahlias Stamp Set-Sentiment Strip 3 Stamp Set (7)

 I stamped the leafy image in green and die cut the image. I purposely left the image un-colored.

 I love the soft colors of three large Dahlias. Remember that odd number of elements helps to craw our eyes to the image.

 I positioned the white-embossed sentiment next to the Dahlias. This really makes the sentiment pop.

I hope that you like this design and get inspired by this card.

Based on the shading, I inked up the banners in darker colors and this really makes the sentiment pop.
 
Feature products #2 "Dancing Flowers".
 Altenew-Dancing Sunflowers Stamp Set -Dancing Sunflowers Die Set-Dancing Sunflowers Layering Stencil Set
 
 This large flower is perfect for a shape card on its own. I took advantage of the coordinating die and die cut an extra piece for the backing. To strengthen the front die, I added an extra piece and this really helps! 
 
Altenew-Dancing Sunflowers Stamp Set -Dancing Sunflowers Die Set-Dancing Sunflowers Layering Stencil Set -002
 
Once I stamped and stenciled the colors, I assembled the piece.  I decided to add the sentiment and an extra piece of leaf die on top. You can tell easily because I used different kinds of green.

Feature products #3: Radial Circles Cover Die, Swallowtail Butterfly Die Set, Stitched Scalloped Circles Die Set, Altenew Blends 6x6 Paper Pack

 This card wasn't difficult to construct once you have all the supplies figured out.

I used predominantly metallic paper, pattern paper and dies. The only colorful part of the butterfly was colored with alcohol markers.

This was not my usual color combo, but I think it works!
