I was excited to create with these stamps and dies. There are such bold, graphic options in this set so I used a few of my favorite techniques to make some fun cards.
I love this technique! If you follow me you know that I use it often. I like to mask off areas of my card front and then ink blend onto it, creating a fun color block look. I get inspired to choose certain colors by searching mood boards online. For this card, I used a coral color and a peach.
After I was done ink blending, I used the large sentiment dies from the set to cut out the words, and turn them into a shaker sentiment by adding a clear plastic window and filling with sequins. Fun!
I also added some details around my sentiment by stamping the graphic triangles and adding some of the perforating dies for some additional texture. Love how this one turned out!
I love that you can use the negative and positive cut outs from these sentiment dies. I used the left over letters from the first card on my second one. I decided to arrange the letters in an interesting way along the side of the card.
Again, I used the perforation dies to add some textured circles- some popped up on foam. The background is again ink blended and the black striped were stamped. Very simple, but a fun and interesting design!
This last card was probably the most fun for me to make. I paired the hexagon design stamp with a bright yellow because it reminded me of honeycomb. I love that the set has so many coordinating pieces, so I was also able to fill in some of the honeycombs with a solid black stamp. I also added the perforating die to a few of the hexagon spaces, and cut out a few hexagon windows to add a shaker to.
I reused a few of those hexagon cutouts and popped them up on foam adhesive for a little dimension.
The letters for the sentiment were die cut and a supporting sentiment stamped.
Such a fun stamp and die set!
