Hello! I have two cards to share with you using a new die, Today Will Be Awesome, from Simon Says Stamp’s new release, Believe In You. Check out the release! It’s huge and lots of beautiful stamps and dies!
I’m also using their Nautical Stripe Stencil that was new with their last release. Here I used it straight up and down on Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock, inkblending on Cookie Monster ink with a mini ink blending tool. I love the tone on tone look!
I die cut the stenciled panel with a Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.
I die cut the new die in TE’s Toffee cardstock and since it’s thicker the letters stayed in the cut. Then I die cut it in Cookie Monster and glued the letters over the Toffee die cut. Easy placement that way..
The die comes with a rectangle die to back it too… that’s handy. I cut it from TE’s Confetti Cake cardstock.
I embellished with the Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background die cut from TE’s Granny Smith cardstock and a few Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles.
For some reason I really like how this turned out! lol It’s not like me to have such a contrast of colors!
My next card…
Same die and stencil, I just did the stencil diagonal both directions, with Lawn Fawn Merman and Cilantro inks and Confetti Cake and Granny Smith cardstocks.
I used the next size down of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies and added the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline die to the leaves this time.
I like this one too. I should mail them! Imagine that! lol
oh and here’s a picture of a couple backgrounds I made last month with this stencil but didn’t get anything made up. Too bad, they would’ve been great patriotic cards! So the stencil, 3 different ways!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate it and always hope you enjoy and are inspired by my cards!
Here’s the products I used to make these cards…
