I am Loving all the new SU 2016-18 In Colors and the"Swirly Bird Stamp Set" and coordinating "Swirly Scribbles Thinlits". I have been using all these new products for my July SU Hostess Club party on the 26th. I will be sharing after our party 2 cards we will be making. I have been busy die cutting 8 of the 9 dies for a total of 16 kits :-) My cutting plates are no longer new looking !
After I finished the kits I wanted to make a few more cards for sample ideas for my girls. I die cut a baggy full of the different dies in different In Colors. I discovered when making my kits that you want to SAVE all the punch out pieces to use as inlays...just like a puzzle..so fun!
I die cut a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card front out of W. White CS using my new CUTplorations "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle" Thin metal dies. Next I stamped the splats with Melon Mambo for the background. I attached all my "puzzle" pieces to the CS using my SU Fine Tip Glue Pen. I used Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo pieces. Stamped hello from SU "A Dozen Thoughts" retired.
I did add a 2nd layer of the white die for more dimension and because I thought the Peekaboo Peach in the middle was not bright enough I just added a Melon Mambo piece, which I liked much better.
My card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch CTS182 Challenge.
I'm also joining in the fun at Snippets Playground week 239, since I used Snippets of Die Cuts :-) Lots of fun always at Pixie's Crafty Workshop!
