Blinging up your dies


Hello and welcome. Today I decided to have a play with blinging up some dies. There are lots of ways to do this, today's card shows just one way. Many of our dies can be used without stamps and tend to be forgotten as a stand alone element. So today I wanted to showcase one set, the Flowers of Home Dies.





I used Gold Foil Sheet to cut out the dies and then cut them out again in Polished Pink card stock. I cut the flowers from the pink die cuts and glued them over the gold ones. The effect is very striking and it's very easy to do.

The die cuts on the plain black card front were  not quite right, so I added a layer of embossed card stock. It just added a touch of texture to the background. 
I used the Foam Adhesive Sheets when I die cut the heading so it would pop off the card.  A few simple pink gems and the card was complete.

I hope I have inspired you to create a card just using your dies and to bling them up.

Oh look, another orange card!


Hello and welcome. I couldn't help myself. I loved the orange flowers in yesterday's card, so just had to use them again. I promise to move onto another colour tomorrow.





I decided to die cut the flowers out and pop them up on dimensionals, then added some Wink of Stella to make them shimmery. I sponged the background using a stencil and blending brushes.

While I had the orange out


Hello and welcome. So while I had the orange ink out on my desk from yesterday's card, I decided to use it for today's card. It's not a colour I gravitate to often, so thought I would use it again.

I used the  Art Gallery stamp set to create the background.




Once the flowers were stamped, I thought they looked a little stark on the white card stock, so I sponged the background lightly to make it look yellow.

Then I did some splattering with water and some watered down black ink.  The large sentiment is a die cut from the Floral Gallery Dies. I added a layer of Fine Tip Glue Pen to the black words to make them pop a little.
