Brilliant Wings Dies #155523

Brilliant Wings Dies #155523

I had fun with color! I use quite a bit of black card stock, all year around. Black POPS all colors! These butterflies are cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies #155523. I applied Adhesive Sheets #152334 to the back of the black card stock before die cutting. This creates a "sticker," so application is quick and clean!! The backgrounds are Subtles 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper #159255. These paper packs are SO HANDY and great for envelopes flaps, too!!

 

20230313_101944

This is a fancy fold. The base is 4-1/4 X 5-1/2". The center is simply a narrow card, cut 8-1/2 X 3", scored at 4-1/4" and mounted on the center of the base. Simple. Try it!

Regency Park 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper

Designer Series Paper #160559

Here is a FUN idea using Regency Park Designer Series Paper #160559. This fold shows both sides of the designer paper.

 

20230305_145754

Working with designer paper is easy. The color palette is predetermined for you.

 

Regency Park 6X6

TIPS: These rectangles are cut 2-1/2 X 1-7/8". Cut the four rectangles as "one," so they are the same size.  Cut one template the same size, and then cut off the corner at a 45 degree angle. This template determines the fold of the designer papers so they are all the same. The center opening can be varied to accommodate the focal point. The deeper the fold, the larger the center opening. This flower is created with the Petal Park Builder Punch #160576.

Alphabet A La Mode Dies #stampinup

20230213_095629

HELLO crafty friends! Alphabet A La Mode #160750 is extremely versatile!! I love that this design is narrow and TALL!! That means more letters fit on a card front!! Yea!!

 

20230104_131331

Handy Tip! To line up your letters, use any straight edge. Here I used a post-it note to create a straight line.  Keep letters close together when creating a word. I like to use a pair of tweezers to hold the letters and position them. I ALWAYS use Adhesive Sheet #152334 on thin dies! Apply the Adhesive sheet to the back of the card stock BEFORE die cutting. This creates an easy to apply sticker!

 

20230213_095647

This lovely black frame is Framed Florets Dies #160623. I also used the Adhesive Sheets when die cutting this frame. The bias plaid is the Country Gingham 6X6" Designer Series Paper #160388 in Mint Macaron.
