Happiness in Red Gingham (Karen Oliver)

Happiness in Red Gingham
by Karen Oliver

A simple bright and happy little card today featuring the Wild Rose Corner die.  The name of this die just made me think of a picnic in the countryside which of course also made me think of gingham.  This little die comes with 2 extra flowers that you can pop up or use to add extra blooms.  I paired it up with a sentiment from the Floral blooms clear stamp set.  Another very useful die the Chevron edger #2 was used to cut the stitched  edge representing the picnic blanket.  Some matching sequins and a few pearls finish the card.

Now doesn't this remind you of a picnic in the countryside!

hello (Karen Oliver)

by Karen Oliver

Dies are so versatile and can be used to create subtle backgrounds by using the embossing method suitable for your die cutting machine.

On this card I used the Peeking Cats die from the January Pet Love release.  I drew very light grids in pencil on my white card stock so I could line the dies up as perfectly as possible.  Using my Cuttlebug I embossed them each 3 times to form my background.

I used the Chevron Edger #1 to cut the corner from the card to add a little interest and placed a piece of coloured paper underneath.  Finishing off with the hello die cut in the same coloured paper.  The hello is also cut out in foam so it sits up off the background.

I love this effect and its a wonderful way to stretch your dies.
