Howdy Kat Scrappiness fans! Maria here on the blog today with a simple card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set. If you are waiting for this die-set, you are in luck because they are arriving back in stock next week! If you haven’t ordered this yet, you can now reserve it so that you don’t have to wait again.
To make things easier for me, I started out by choosing a sketch pattern from the Kat Scrappiness site (you can see this photo on the product sample). I downloaded this sketch and inserted this piece in the envelope with the dies so I can use them for my future projects. Sometimes, it is helpful to have it when you’re not feeling crafty! I am having one of those days since the majority of my supplies are currently loaded in a shipping container, en-route to our home in FL.
I die-cut some A2 size card stock with the rounded-edge rectangle die. I used the same die to die-cut a patterned paper.
I used the long strip die that is included in the set to die-cut another piece of some white card stock (slightly a different color from my card base). I also used the stars die to die-cut one pin pink, blue and yellow.
I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored it in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the image with the coordinating die. To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my belli-roll pen to add more details to the images. Here’s my card:
I love the simplicity of this card. I didn’t do a lot as you can tell, but it turned out really cute! This sketch is also perfect to create a “Welcome Baby” card. Here’s another look:
This Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set is definitely a must-have for any paper crafter. I think the little stitched star die is just the right size to add to your projects. I love the stitching details to it as well.
