Blog Hop 7

Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. I'm so excited to share a project with today's new Flowers and Swirls Collection Release. This new collection features versatile and unique stand-alone dies that you will surely adore! I hope you are as thrilled as I am to see the gorgeous projects that our designers and guests have prepared for you! Let's get started!

Flowers and Swirls Stand-Alone Dies Collection

Flowers and Swirls Stand-Alone Dies

What could be more dreamy than flowers and swirls? This release ticks all the boxes with a variety of stand-alone dies along with a coordinating stamp/die/3D embossing folder/stencil mini collection (purchase them separately or as part of a bundle). We know you will love creating stunning works of art in your craft room with these goodies. Happy crafting!

Flowers and Swirls Project Inspiration

Today, I'll be sharing a sparkly stacked die-cut focal point with an ink blended background.

20220210 132110 1I started by cutting 5 of the detail die from Starlight Die from white cardstock. Before I cut these, I added the white cardstock to a piece of Double-Sided Adhesive so these were easier to adhere together. I also cut the same die from Dazzling Diamond Glitter Cardstock and added this to the top of the stacked die cuts.

20220210 132112 1For the background, I ink blended Cotton Candy, Sunkissed, Sunray, Firefly, Volcano Lake, Caribbean Sky, and Lavender Fields Inks onto a piece of cardstock that was then adhered to a white card base. I die cut the larger die from Starlight Die into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card panel and adhered this to the card base with foam tape. The stacked die-cut was added into place through the die-cut window. The sentiment is from Sentiments Strips 3 Stamp Set.
