These female athlete silhouettes are designed in both solid and artistic scribbles to be used alone or layered. Mix and match them in darker ink colors over the various decorative layers that not only ground the images but also allude to the concept of movement. Works beautifully with the "Making Strides" sentiment set.

Thick & Thin Demo3

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Celebrate Card

I love how Betsy designed the new Thick & Thin dies, they just have SO many options. One unique aspect of the thin versions is that they are designed so none of the interior pieces of the letters "fall out", this makes them perfect for utilizing the negative space they create.


Here I cut the thin celebrate die from my card front twice. It looks so delicate and detailed, yet just involved a simple pass through my die-cut machine!



The third "celebrate" at the bottom used the thick and thin versions together. Before cutting the thin design from the thick design, I colored the thick with copic markers, creating an ombré look. I stacked a few plain white cuts of the thick version underneath for dimension.


You could use this same technique with any of the phrases and also have fun experimenting with color!

Start Card

My next project used the new She Moves set, paired up with Making Strides. I have SO many friends that are embarking on a weight loss journey as well as participating in marathons regularly, so I know these will be getting a lot of use at my house!


I stamped the runner from She Moves a few times in a row without re-inking to create a sense of movement. The stars were added around her using Summer Sunrise ink.


I added the sentiment in Simply Chartreuse, and singled out the word "starts" and stamped it in Orange Zest on Summer Sunrise cardstock. This helped to add a bit of balance to the overall design.


This was quick and easy to make, and the sentiment could be changed out for almost any of the option in Making Strides.

Just Breathe Card

My last project today uses the new Stroke Speak set. I'm just crazy about this and love how easy it is to use without adding any additional layers to your cards.


I stamped the sentiment first in Melon Berry. The bold font choice really shows up will even though it is a reverse image. I used the very ends of a few different sentiment strips to add some splashes of color down the side of the card. A few little clear jewels were attached to help break up all of the horizontal lines.
