Today is Day 2 of our March Release and is full of the most beautiful florals and sweet, meaningful sentiments. Introducing the new Beauty in Motion stamp set and dies, the Cover Plate: Fanciful Flowers dies, and Just Sentiments: Family stamp set.
I love the new Cover Plate: Fanciful Flowers die. It creates the most elegant, decorative edge that you can be used vertically or horizontally on your card front. Cut it from patterned paper or colored cardstock. Add watercolors, markers, colored pencils, etc., this die is so versatile and playful. I die cut mine from Vintage Cream ink and then sponged ink over the decorative edge.
The Beauty in Motion stamp set creates the most lovely, flowing flower that truly creates the feel of motion. You’ll not only find the layered flower in this set but also swirls and speckles that help create the feel of movement. I added droplets of water over my petals to create a watercolor, ethereal feel.
The Just Sentiments: Family stamp set is full of such thoughtful sentiments that will warm your heart! I stamped mine on a half die cut Love to Layer: Lovely Brackets die. It fits perfectly in the bottom corner of my card and finishes it off nicely.
STAMPS: Beauty in Motion, Just Sentiments: Family
INK: Spring Rain, Green Parakeet, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Bright Buttercup, Autumn Rose, Lovely Lady
PAPER: Vintage Cream
DIES: Beauty in Motion, Cover Plate: Fanciful Flowers, Love to Layer: Lovely Brackets
OTHER: Distress Spray, adhesive gems, patterned paper
Next up today is the new Bright Future stamp set with coordinating dies. This set is perfectly timed for graduation and with the lovely, floral frame, can be used for so many other occasions. Let’s jump right into the projects.
The floral frame surrounding the sentiment in this set is so beautiful and I can see my using it for many other events and occasions. I stamped mine on Ocean Tides cardstock using watermark ink and then heat embossed it in white. I added color to the flowers and leaves using my colored pencils.
I added a graduation cap and tassel and tiny tag stamped with a secondary sentiment. The cap is completely optional, which allows you to place it wherever you’d like on your card or leave it off entirely. Behind my frame I have added a die cut Love to Layer: Lovely Brackets die cut from Autumn Rose.
In the background, I have used another new, hot foil plate called Confetti Circle which you’ll be hearing more about soon.. I love it foiled in silver over Kraft cardstock….so beautiful!
STAMPS: Bright Future
INK: Olive Twist, Smokey Shadow
PAPER: Kraft, Ocean Tides, Autumn Rose, Weathervane, Vintage Cream
DIES: Bright Future, Scalloped Tags, Love to Layer: Lovely Brackets
OTHER: Confetti Circle Hot Foil Plate, silver foil, button, twine, Moonshine sequins, colored pencils, white embossing powder
- Personalize a mat layer and ink for the sentiment in the school colors.
- Add an enamel dot to the cap and twine to the diploma for added dimension.
- On the inside of the money card, adhere pocket sides with very narrow score tape (I used 1/4″).
- Add a metallic silver mat layer and a looped silver cord to echo the silver foiled star panel.
- Pop up the sentiment with foam tape to add dimension.
- Moonshine sequins and an enamel dot on the cap give added interest and shine.
