So excited to be a part of the Dynamic Die Cutting Bloghop at Altenew! I challenged myself to see if a card could be created with no stamping, Just Dies! If you are hopping along from the beginning you should be arriving from Aga's blog.
Here is what I came up with using all these lovely dies from Altenew:
Just a few coloring mediums and a kiss of washi and Thread :)
To make the card:
- Cut several blooms from watercolor CS using: Peony Dream 3-D Die, Layered Rose Die, Rose Flurries Die, and Create-A-Wreath Die
- Colored each piece with the new Watercolor Brush Markers - Spring Garden Set, set aside to dry..
While the flower pieces dry:
- Covered an A2 sized cardfront with Peach Gold Washitape
- Ran that through the cutting machine using the Cross Stitch Canvas Die
- Then added the sentiment from Circle Embroidery Hoop Die, run through the machine again
- Stitched the sentiment with GOLD thread..the washi tape makes the paper more sturdy for stitching :)
- Cut the HOOP from Circle Embroidery Hoop Die from brown and gold CS and assemble,
- Adhere to the stitched card front and add more brown CS to create a "basket"
- Add more color to the dried floral pieces with Artist Markers
- Assemble each flower
Now I spent some time arranging my bouquet of blooms:)
I LOVE how this card came together, and how therapeutic all the die cutting was!
Hope you are inspired to create with Dies on your next project!
