Hello There Crafty Friends,
One thing over the years, ive used over and over again is my alphabet dies.
These are a staple in any crafters stash. Not only for personalising your cards, but for sentiments. Different sizes give different impact to your designs.
All the Letters Dies Concord & 9th
Playful Patterns Stamp Set
Aqua Sky, Grapefruit, and Sorbet Cardstock and Inkpads.
Oceanside Inkpad Only
Nuvo Drops in Aqua Plains and Peach Sorbet (Jewel)
Embroidery Tread, Sequins, and Paper flower (My Stash)
Firstly I cut all the rectangles out one for each letter in this case 6 letters (Olivia). I taped two dies together to speed up the cutting process. I used the different colours of the cardstock.
I then cut out the letters in the name, out of the rectangles, making sure I centred them in the centre at at the same height.
I then lay them by a slimline card to see how they would look.
Next I took the Playful Pattern stamp set and set to work on stamping the card blank to make the background using the matching inks to cardstock.
Then I placed the letters down using a ruler to help keep them straight..
I love the look of these longer letters.
when using inks and cardstock from the same company it makes the project come together seamlessly.
I know these alphabet dies are going to used often, and the rectangle adds a different look. But the letters can be used with out there are many possibilities.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog post.
