Introducing… English Country Garden Butterflies Designer Dies & Large Background Sketched Foliage


Welcome to Day 2 of the April / May 2019 Release product introductions. If you missed Day 1, you can catch up HERE, it is one not to be missed 😉

Today we are introducing English Country Garden Designer Dies & Large Background Sketched Foliage Clear Stamp. Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of todays introduction blog hop. I have shared a little bit about todays designs and where my inspiration for them came from.

Here is a look at todays products in action…


First up is English Country Garden Butterflies Designer Dies. This set of coordinating dies have been on my wish list forever! Usually my first make with coordinating dies would be a shaker card, but I resisted the urge and kept my card clean and simple and used the largest butterfly die to create a raised die cut aperture!



Next I have a card using the Large Background Sketched Foliage…



I wanted to have a little fun with this background stamp as it has a little more detail than the other 2 large background stamps I have in the Uniko line up. I’ve not long had the Avery Elle Focal Point Stripes Die and I thought it would be fun to use it as a focal point of this card to create a fun two tone green spotlighted image.


It looks complicated, but it is really quite a simple card to make & you can actually make 2 cards from the effort of one quite easily too! I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the background in 2 shades of green Altenew Ink (I used Fresh Leaf & Lime) onto panels of white card trimmed to the same size.

Then I simply die cut the Avery Elle Focal Point Stripes from the lighter (Lime) panel and adhered it to the darker panel using foam adhesive, making sure that the design matched up nicely. I then adhered it to my card base & stamped a sentiment from Simply Said.

That’s all I have to share with you today using these new products, but I will have more on release day. I know my awesome Guest Designer and Design Team have lots of inspiration to share with you, so be sure to hop on by to each of them…

    Superb use of dies on both cards. Know now that the butterfly die will make a fabulous shaker window!

    Bev, your cards are just fab!
    Love the idea of a butterfly shaker, but also without an acetat window it looks great – impressive!
    Monocromatic cards show so much unexpected dramatic – especially when they are combined with clever dies! 😉

    Hugs & greetings from Wiebke

    Absolutely crushing over your butterfly card (and yes, the die makes for a great shaker!). Adore the showcase of the foliage; using the AE die really adds impact!
