Designer Dies Natures Treasures II Release Day, Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Happy Weekend!

Such a happy fun day, as not only am I at the Stamping Together Festival in Port Sunlight (keep and eye on my social media stories), it is also Release Day for the Designer Dies Natures Treasures II.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of the hop. And where I have introduced the new Designer Dies. You can also find links to all the Brand Ambassador blogs.

So let’s have a look at what I created today…

You might remember that on the first day of introductions I made a traditional shaker card using the solid leaf die. Well, I had this crazy idea of making a shaker card using the open leaf die too! Which is what I have done here.

It’s a little more time consuming, but I think the results are worth it. To achieve this I cut about 5 or six of the leaves from white card. I then used my fine tip glue to glue them together to create the height you would normally get from foam adhesive with a traditional shaker card.

I then glued the leaf in place on my card base, added the sprinkles and die cut the solid leaf from acetate to keep the sprinkles in and then added another white leaf die cut over the top. The sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks and I added some enamel dots from my stash.

For my second card today I wanted to recreate a card I made HERE, where I fussy cut the leaves. But I wanted to see how it would look with the leaves stamped and die cut instead.

As you can see I changed the colours slightly. Choosing some of the new Concord & 9th colours.

I think both versions of the card look good, but the die cut one was quicker and has more detail with the open leaf. However, if you didn’t want the open leaf die cut, that is still an option as you can stamp onto the reverse of the solid leaf die cut as the leaves are the same size, but in reverse.

That’s all I have here on the blog today. But I will be demoing the dies at the show in Port Sunlight today and I will do my best to share them on social media too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

    The shaker card is gorgeous… Love the second card too, compared to your previous version it has one more layer for that extra something. Great die set Bev!

    Your shaker is brilliant, Beverley! I think you should patent it as the Beverley type of shaker! Really love the 2nd card, too & great not to have to fussy cut which I tend to avoid!
