Introducing… Designer Dies Natures Treasures II Day One

Happy Wednesday!

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, where myself and Vinita are getting you over the mid week hump with the first of three days creativity introducing you to the NEW Designer Dies Natures Treasures II.

These dies didn’t quite arrive in time for the last release, hence why I have a mini surprise release this week! It seems weird releasing just one product, but I couldn’t have them sit on the studio shelf any longer.

So, as its a little different than normal I have changed up the introductions a little.

But enough talk, lets see them in action…

When I design I am constantly thinking of versatility. How can I provide more creative options with this design. So when it came to the dies that coordinate with the previously released Natures Treasures II clear stamp set, I also wanted them to work as stand alone dies. Where you don’t have to use the stamps, if you didn’t want to. I am pleased how I have achieved this.

For this first card I combined the stamps and the dies, but not in the usual stamping on the die cut way. I used the more solid stamped leaf to create a frame and then the open leaf dies to create a focal point inside the frame, that is adhered using foam adhesive.

I added a bakers twine bow and some Bottle Green Crystal Nuvo Drops and the sentiment is from Floral Vines.

For my second card, I went for the traditional shaker card…

New dies ALWAYS call for a shaker card in my opinion! Here I went for the easy shaker option using the solid leaf die cut.

The shaker element is Sprinkles: Cupcake Dreams from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards that I bought ages ago.

Again the sentiment is from Floral Vines and I finished off the CAS design with Dandelion Gloss Nuvo Drops.

Lastly for today I used the dies and stamps the traditional way, stamping and die cutting.

I always start by stamping the leaves and to get (an almost, as it isn’t 100% guaranteed) perfect die cut, I use a die cut mask.

And before I get to the other supplies I used, can we just appreciate the die cut Oceanside leaf at the bottom. Finally beautiful detail of the inside of the leaf being cut out. *insert all the heart eyes*.

The stamped lines are from Background Builders Classics and the sentiment is from Everyday Spring Sentiments.

That’s all from me today.

Thank you for stopping by & Crafty Hugs

    So love your cards, Beverley! Good idea not to let these leaves wait any longer to be released!

    Love them all Bev. Especially impressed with the shaker as it hadn’t occurred to me to use the dies in this way! X
