Rectangle Hues of Happiness



Howdy crafty friends, todays blog hop is featuring "Stand alone Dies". I know that I love when a stamp set has coordinating dies, but we also need dies for basic shapes, and to honest at times these dies are the heroes of our projects - my "go-to" die sets for are the Stitched Rectangle Dies & Stylish Shapes Dies, today I chose to highlight the Stitched Rectangle Dies.



I selected the 2 dies that are the same width, and cut into a piece of Hues of Happiness DSP. These dies look fabulous on this sheet of DSP, there is a linen look texture through the design, reminding me of oil paintings. I also cut a matching set in Night of Navy and adhered to the DSP die cuts.



Next I stamped my card mat using the largest flower from the Happiness Abounds stamp set with VersaMark ink - this gives a lovely effect that breaks up the background, yet doesn't over power or clash with the DSP.



After adhering the Die cuts and card mat to the card I finished by stamping the sentiment on a strip  of So Saffron, adding and offsetting a small strip of Night of Navy below, then added a touch of bling with Brushed Metallic Dots to finish the design.



Continue through our showcase of "Stand alone Dies" following the list below, I'm sure you will be insprired to create:

Thank you for everything Hues of Happiness

Hello crafty friends, I'm using one of my favourite layouts today with the simply gorgeous Hues of Happiness DSP . I decided to make the card using Pool Party cardstock to complement the blue flowers in a bed of purples, I think it turned out lovely. I added detail to the card front by using the Scalloped edge from the Scalloped Contours Dies , and heat embossed a sentiment in silver from the Color & Contour stamp set .  To finish I added a touch of bling with Rhinestone  Basic Jewels .

Color Fusers Blog Hop May 2024

It's time for this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our colors include Pebbled Path, Bubble Bath and Moody Mauve - perfect colours for a Mother's Day Card! I've used the new Attention Shoppers Bundle for my design - a super fun set with a mix of font and cute pictures that can be mixed and matched to be used for so many occasions. I added some InColor DSP and cut the feature circle using the online exclusive  Everyday Details Dies  - they are just amazing, I missed them being released due to being so busy at work - so take it from me, make sure you keep an eye on the Online Exclusives released each March, July and November. I decided on a "wash of colour" using Stampin' Blends then die cut with the coordinating dies. After stamping the sentiment I adhered the 3 die cut images and finished by adding a touch of bling with Silver ribbon and Basic Rhinestones.

Color Fusers Blog Hop January 2024

Happy New Year! It's a new month, so that means it's time for the Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our creations feature Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight and one of my old favourites Melon Mambo! What a bright and bubbly combination, so I decided to create a "Feel Better Soon" card - I'm seeing a number of friends posting on Facebook that they have come done with Covid, so this will be perfect to lift their spirits. I've used a new stamp set from the up coming catalogue released in a couple of days " Painted Lavender ", and not with a hit of purple in sight! The layered sentiment from Wanted to Say Dies is perfect for this design - and I finished with some Bakers Twine.
