These are two more cards we made at my monthly stamp class. I wanted to show them different ways to use the same product. In these examples I used the Stitched Lace Dies.
To make the top card I first cut out the background panel using the large background die in this set with Purple Posy cardstock. Then I used the edge die to cut the bottom off. You will need the piece you cut off to make the second card. I adhered this onto a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Glue. If you use Snail, you will see pieces of it through the cut outs so the glue works much better on this kind of die. Then I stamped the Butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Gorgeous Grape onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and punched them out using the Butterfly Duet Punch. The stamp has both the large and small butterfly on one piece so you stamp and punch them out at the same time. I stamped the sentiment and punched that out using the Classic Label Punch. Then I took a few white sequins from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins Pack and colored them using my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin Blend. You can use your Blends to change them to any color.
To make this card, I took the leftover piece I had previously cut from the Stitched Lace Dies, cut the edges using the small edge die that comes in this set and then cut that in half using my trimmer. I stamped the flower and sentiment from the stamp set called Beautiful Friendship using Highland Heather ink and the leaves with Old Olive. Can you see in the picture how the flower has different shades of purple? The stamp itself does this because it is a DisINKtive stamp set. I love how these sets give a little texture to your images. Lastly I adhere both pieces of the die cut on both sides of the cardstock and adhered that to a Highland Heather card base.
Now you can see how one die cut can have two different looks which makes it much more versatile.

These are both lovely, Susan! I love how you used basically the same products to create to totally different cards. (And purple and white is one of my favorite combinations!)
1 die cut, 2 cards = perfection! I love these two cards; great colours & layouts.
Susan these are so beautiful, and yet simple to make. Lovely colors and layouts!
