Dies Cuts make great Cards

  • Swirly Scribbles Sunshine
  • 2 days remain to order retiring items

Totally Die Cuts

I truly enjoy the variety of dies we have to work with.  Today's card uses dies from 3 different sets:  Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Flourish Thinlits, and Sunshine Wishes Thinlit.   It wasn't until I started entering the recipe for this card, below, that I realized that I hadn't used a single stamp or any ink on this card.  Its all die cuts!

This card also make use the of the Ombre papers in the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper Pack.  I chose to use the shade of Crushed Curry, but this card design would work with the other three color shades in this paper pack as well. 

I used the Swirly Scribbles Die and cut 4 different shades from the Crushed Curry Ombre 6X 6" stack and then I also cut one addition Scribble in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The leaves are die cut from Garden Green using Flourish Thinlit.  The word Sunshine is die cut from Basic Black using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. The upper left corner of the card is accented with the new Glitter Enamel Dots in three different sizes.

New Items Sneak Peek

Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, 144193

I've used this new paper stack in a previous card.  Now, you are only a few day from being able to order this new paper pack.  This beautiful designer paper is available, June 1.    This is a 6" X 6" paper stack that includes 4 each of 12 double sided designs in colors that coordinate with Berry Burst, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Dapper Denim in addition to other colors in our product line.  

I've shown the Glitter Enamel Dots, below, in a previous sneak Peek.  They are adhesive-backed dots in Ombre shades.  10 each in 4 colors including Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Berry Burst, and Old Olive.  The hues match easily with many of our colors, such as the Crushed Curry and shades of yellow I matched it with on toady's cards.  

Glitter Enamel Dots

These were so popular, they sold out during the Demonstrator preview order period.  Stampin' Up! worked hard with the vendor to get these back in stock, and our supplies will be replenished by June 5.
