I have two cards and a video to share with you today using my favorite product from the new release: Quilted Flower Die Set!
To say that I had a lot of fun using the Quilted Flower dies would be an understatement! These dies are SO. MUCH. FUN. Really! And they are beautiful too! The sentiment, stamped on a piece die cut with the Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles, is embossed in white & is from a beautiful new sentiment set called Greetings & Salutations. Lots of beautiful choices of sentiments in this set and such a nice size too. Did you notice the white background piece? That also features a new die called Cover Up Die: Dotted Scallops. (For a tip on how to easily get out all of the little holes in the cardstock, watch my video here.)
To make the Quilted Flowers (although in this card I didn't use the stitches that make it look quilted) I sponged distress ink onto watercolor paper (I love the texture that gives!) and then cut the flowers out. The die set comes with three dies: the base, the swirly outline/insert die & a stitched outline die which is fabulous (more on that later). For these flowers I chose to use the base die and layer the outline die on top of it. I also inserted a little green piece for the leaf as well. The leaves and small flowers that I used as filler are from a previously released set called Awesome Blossom stamps & Awesome Blossom Dies.
There are LOTS of different ways you can use this new Quilted Flower Die Set! I made a video below that shows 10 Ways to Use the Quilted Flowers Die.
You definitely get your dollars worth with these new versatile Quilted Flowers Dies! And, there are really more than 10 ways to use the dies since almost each idea has several options on using the dies with or without the stitching (which is GORGEOUS by the way!!).
Here's the second card that I showed in the video. For this card I again used the Cover Up Die: Dotted Scallops for the background. This time I popped the black piece up with dimensionals against a white piece of cardstock. Don't you just love how the white peeks through the holes for even more visual interest and texture!
I used the inside swirl pieces that were left over from when I made the first card I shared with you above. Then, I sponged a Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag Die with distress ink and stamped a sentiment from the new Greetings & Salutations stamp set. I added in some rain stones to finish the card off.
