I created three cards using four of the products included in the catalog: Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL, Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies, Sending Love Mail and the Hexagons Infinity Dies.
For this card, I used Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL along with the Hexagons Infinity dies, take a look: The design of this card is quite simple, and I only played with different colors and sizes of hexagons to create a background for the main sentiment. I die cut the word “thanks” from white cardstock and black foam. I like to do this to add dimension to the word and avoid having a bunch of little pieces of foam tape behind the words. I placed the white slightly off center over the black to make it look like a drop shadow. The sentiment was simply white-embossed over black cardstock and I embellished the card with some colorful sequins.
For this card I used Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies and Sending Love Mail stamp set. I have to say that I love that little envelope. It is the perfect size to put some flowers in it…or hearts, or whatever you wish. Of course, the flower and leaf dies were super fun to color with Chameleon Markers. The background was created with Distress ink and a sponge dauber. Then I stamped the words block included in the stamp set. I finished up this card with a white-embossed sentiment, decorative tape, Sparkle silk and some sequins.
The third card was a mix of products. I used the Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL to die cut the word “happy” from white cardstock and then, I gave it color with two ddifferent colors of Distress Inks. I also die cut the word from black foam to add dimension, just like card #1. I created a bouquet of flowers using the dies from the Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies. I Colored the shapes with watercolors. For the background, just like card #2, I used the Sending Love Mail stamp set and Distress inks. I sprinkled a bit of water to create the water marks over the DI background and I also stamped the words block over it. I complemented the card with a strip of vellum, decorative tape and some crystal blue and green dots.
