I’m so excited to share today’s post because we are launching a new product at Kat Scrappiness called Crafter’s Essentials 2 die set. This set includes 8 steel rule dies. You can also pair them up with the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set and you will have endless design possibilities. Here’s what it looks like:
I made two cards today to showcase the Crafter’s Essentials 2 die set and I have a process video for the mermaid card that you will see below.
For my first card, I used an older stamp set from my stash and made a simple card. I love the stitching details on the banner and the bigger dies.
I also used the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set for my sentiment. Don’t you just love the chevron pattern on the big die? Here’s another look:
I added some black dots on the card base to give it a little bit more dimension. Here’s a little close-up:
For my second card, I wanted to create a happy, summer-themed card. I used a stamp set that I recently purchased with this cute cat mermaid. I also used the Sunscape stencil die by Newton’s Nook Designs.
I started out by inking up some Bristol smooth white card stock with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade distress oxide ink with my mini ink blending tool. Since I have a process video for this card, I will keep this blog post short.
I inlaid the little chevron pieces on my card. I also added the Sparkling Clear Jewels to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a little close-up:
This card makes me happy. I love the colors that I used and this die-set is a must-have! Here’s another look:
Here’s my process video:
