We meet again!
I’m on a bit of a challenge kick lately and am joining my My Favorite Things buddies for a challenge yet again. Today, we doing a frame it challenge with popular Blueprints Die-namics.
The Blueprints series are some of my most favorite dies from MFT Stamps. First, you get a ton of dies with each set. Second, you can use them as they come (and put together super quick cards) or you can live on the edge and your own thing. There’s so many dies in each set that it’s really easy to do that.
So for each of my cards today, I used the Blueprints 19 Die-namics. And I went with a somewhat citrus-y color scheme. I’m sorta in the mood for Summer after a lot of rain here lately (but I digress). 😉
And to make that thanks word (from the Many Thanks Die-namics) really stand out, I die-cut it a couple times and then stacked the words up, off-setting them as I went. I sure love that layered look.
And this here is card #2.
So this is a different twist on framing.
For this one, I used the label from Blueprints 19 as the frame. And then I used the set’s rectangle die to add to the framed look by die-cutting it twice and laying it onto the label. And then (deep breath) I placed the rectangle strip (also from the Blueprints 19) over it to tie it all together.
Like I said, I really love that you can “march to your own beat” so to speak with the Blueprints Die-namics and really live on the edge.
And, last but not least, this is card #3.
I again used the label to create a frame element to build my card design around.
This time, I used about 2/3rd’s of the label. And then I die-cut the word (with the Happy Hellos Die-namics) into it. Oh, and that U? Yep. Stamped that with the Celebrate You stamp set. Just masked off all the letters on the For You stamp (other than the U) with washi tape. I inked up the stamp, removed the stamp and stamped! Ink only go on the letter U. It’s kinda magic… at least in stamper’s terms! 😉
So whew! That’s what I have today.
