Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to My Favorite Things June Die-namics Design! This month’s theme is Shape it Up.
We love STAX for their versatility and value. Basic shapes in a variety of sizes make them a fantastic way to beef up your toolbox with supplies that will stand the test of time and never go out of style. Beyond simple matting, these die cuts can be layered and combined in completely new and unique ways and this month, our team will give you just a taste of their capabilities. While STAX run the gamut to include stars, hearts, and flags, this month we’re focusing on the most elemental shapes of all: squares, rectangles, circles, and ovals. We’ve opened things up a little bit to include a variety of border options so you’ll see some stitched and pierced detailing, but you’ll be astounded by how creative you can be with a few simple lines and curves.
Here is what I came up with:
First of all, I coloured onto the watercolour paper with MFT dye inks using a wide paintbrush -it looks like dyed fabrics. I then die cut several pieces of squares, rectangles from the coloured paper using Cross-Stitch Square, Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I positioned them in place, mounted them as shown to the Primitive White cardstock using dimensional foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped ‘Best wishes’ from the Happy Pandas Stamp set using embossing ink, white heat embossed. To finish it off, I embellished some clear sequins.
If you have basic shape die-namics and dye inks, you can easily make beautiful cards :D
