Another Two-Fer

Hi Bloggers.

I have another simple two-fer for you today -

The one above is a simple card with layers cut from Coconut White Card using the Justrite A2 Stitched Banners & Rectangles Die Set. I have stamped the image from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed using CS Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I have cut an aperture with one of the circle dies from the same set into the top banner layer and set the image below it, stacking up with Creative Expressions Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Clear Perfect Medium and this time I embossed with CS Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using another die from the Banners & Rectangles Set. I slotted it in just poking out between the 2 banner layers.

I popped my design onto a trimmed card blank (this time I did not use the die set to create the card blank as I had already used the largest die in the set and I wanted to show another layer on my card rather than just have my card blank the same size as the largest die used - hope that makes sense!)

Here's your second card -

For this one, I started by spritzing a piece of Watercolour Card with some water. I added some CS Pixie Powders in Golden Mint and Pewter and put aside to dry.

I created my card blank from Coconut White Card using the largest die in the Justrite A2 Butterfly Garden Die Set.

I cut the circle die from the same die set out of Coconut White Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Die Set using Watering Can Archival and cut it out using a die from the Justrite Four in a Square Die Set.

Once my Pixie background was dry, I cut the largest 2 dies in the A2 Butterfly Garden Die Set together and also the butterfly wreath.

I layererd everything together and job done!

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

  19. Hello Julia.

    Two Lovely Cards. The Stitched Banners and Rectangles die set is one of my favourites and I really like the Meadow Circle Stamps. I love Pixie powders and your colour combination is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes

  20. In card number 1, I really like the way you have used the stitched banners to showcase the Justrite Meadow Circle stamp - it really pops. The second card showcases the lovely range of pixie powder colours. I don't think I have ever seen the Justrite butterfly garden die set. Both stunning cards. Hope you are enjoying Ally Pally.

  23. Good Afternoon Julia, oh what a pair of beautiful cards I love how you create the designs and what you do with them. hugs Shirleyxxx

  24. Both cards are beautiful and totally different. Thank you for sharing these.

  25. Two contrasting but great cards. The colours of the second may not be my choice but I think the die cutting of a pixie powdered card to produce a design is a great one and one to experiment with.


  26. Afternoon Julia, wow 2 very different cards, I like them both very much, the first one edges it a bit for me, but anyone would be proud to receive such a creation.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
