Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am excited to share three projects that I created with Dots and Boxes Stamp Set. At first glance, this stamp set may not look too impressive. After all, they are just dots and boxes! However, I beg to differ and am asking you to take a closer look at this amazing background stamp.
Let's get started with a bright floral card. I stamped the You Are Beautiful Stamp & Die Bundle with the new ink: Nature Wonders Crisp Oval Set and Martian Terrain Crisp Oval Set. And boy, the colors are absolutely exquisite.
As you can see, this DIY overlay will work beautifully with any floral images. The “happy birthday” sentiment from Essential Strips Sentiment Die makes this a lovely birthday card.
The Warm and Cozy Enamel Dots complements the Dots and Boxes perfectly.
Next up, I applied Pure White Embossing Powder to Dots & Boxes. This time, I highlighted the background with the Northern Shore Crisp Dye Ink. I find adding a gradient effect is the key to make the images pop. The Emboss Resist Technique never gets old.
I took out the Rounded Rectangle Die Set and cut out the center. For the subtle dimensions, I added two more die-cut pieces. With the Large Ink Blending Tool, it was easy to create an awesome background.
This fun birthday card is extra fun thanks to the colorful background. I started out stamping the striped Dots and Boxes in various colors.
Since I have a piece of extra cardstock with the Ornamental Feature 3D Embossing Folder, I positioned the Layered Gift Tag -Cake Die Set over the card stock and made the die-cut. You can see the subtle textures on the cake! Isn't that cool?
Instead of using the cake die set as a tag, I popped the smallest floral images from Watercolor Garden Layering Dies over the cake.
To top it off, I added Silver Metallic Thread and one enamel dot for the “icing on the cake”!
I hope my 3 examples make you see the incredible possibilities that Dots and Boxes has to offer. You can absolutely use this stamp set to personalize your style and designs.
