it’s a texture adventure!

This month’s standalone die release is certainly full of texture! From burlap to leaves and diamonds and swirls, you’re going to love all the unique diecuts you’ll be able to make with this release!

surprise – leaf dies!

Did you see the projects I did last week for the Mixed Media Ink hop? Everyone wanted to know where the leaves came from…. well here they are! Say hi to the Leaf Mix Die Set!

in the mood for sweets

For my second batch of projects, I guess I had ice cream and sweet treats on the brain as I went all-in for a sugary sweet suite of cards!

For both card duos, I did a positive and negative version of the cover plate die background. For this first duo, I created extra texture by stamping Shine Like A Diamond in the Red Cosmos Mixed Media Inks onto a gel plate, then transferred the image onto cardstock, then cut out the cover die. I (very carefully) preserved the pattern using some press-n-seal so I could replace it on a card front. Whew, that’s a lot of work!

This duo showcases the Tangled Loops Cover Die. The intertwined loops look just like a doodle I’d make on my notebook while daydreaming during a conference call! Of course, having a sweet treat like the ones from the Summer Swirls stamp set would make a meeting a whole lot better! LOL!

The second sweet treat duo features the Stacked Diamond Cover Die. I used an ink smooshed background using the Green Fields Mixed Media Inks brayered on a gel plate to create the unique green texture you see.

I thought those diamonds shouldn’t take themselves so seriously, so I whipped up a pile of yummies from the Way Too Sweet set. Sooo cute!

Thank You!
