My first project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s new sets… Geode Layer Dies and Text and Texture Agate stamps. This particular card was so fun to put together because my sweet daughter LOVES collecting “special” rocks. We can’t take this girl anywhere without her finding something cool on the ground and her begging to take it home to wash it. She’s just the cutest.

My color inspiration came from this image I found on Pinterest…

I used little bits from the Shaker and Sprinkles kit to create the crystals in the center. 🙂

My next project is showing off the latest from Lizzie Jones… her monthly Glorious Globes April as well as Sentiment Staples Congratulations.

I took this set in a bit of a different direction this time by turning one of the circles into a floral focal point. It’s accents are created with Circle Scribbles dies and Doodlie Do coordinating dies.

The new Mix & Mat: Hearts is as lovely as you would imagine it to be. It’s perfect for Valentine’s, anniversaries, weddings, or even just fun feminine cards. I love a good heart and the addition of the arrows has my heart fluttering. 🙂

I created a soft background using neutrals with the Farmers Market stamps and then accented them with a larger floral in Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal. The sentiment is a two layer die in Soft Stone and Hawaiian Shores.

Using the Positive & the Negative of a Die Cut

image

Hi all! Today I have 2 cards for you using the positive and the negative parts of the same die cut. For the first card I used a sketch (by Maile Belles, I believe) from an old Clean and Simple class and used the negative part of the die cut. I cut out the word “congrats” with my Silhouette and adhered the negative on it’s side using dimensional adhesive on top of a piece of pattern paper. I tied twine into a bow next to it and embellished with 3 acrylic hearts.

For the next card I used the positive parts of the same die cut. I layered some patterned papers from Echo Park and October Afternoon together and adhered the “congrats” letters on top. I finished the card off with rounded corners, a wrap of twine, and a stamped heart and arrow.

And that’s it! So save your positives and negatives and make a couple cards at the same time using both! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
