KS August DT Inspiration and Giveaway Day 2

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans!  Welcome to Day 2 of the August DT Inspiration and today, we are showcasing the two pre-released Slimline dies –> the Cross-Stitched Nesting Slimline and the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline. The design team is back to show you more project inspiration using the new dies and we also have a GIVEAWAYPLEASE SCROLL THROUGH AT THE END OF THE POST TO FIND OUT HOW TO WIN.







We have a special treat for you today with process videos from our YT DT Members.  You are going to LOVE what they have in store for you!


Are you ready to see the samples?






I love the simplicity of this card by Adam.  He used the Zigzag Nesting Slimline die and die-cut the card stock in different colors to create his design.  He added the Brush Script “hello” and black enamel dots to finish his design. Simple and elegant!




Two amazing cards by Caren.  First card is with the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline die and the Wok-On stamp set.   Second card below uses the Cross-Stitched Slimline Nesting dies and the Merry Christmas with Shadow dies.








This fall scene by Jo is just AMAZING!  She also has a process video for us today on how she created this card.









I love this shaker card by Kathy.  She used the Cross-Stitched Nesting Slimline dies to create the frame on her shaker card using a mix of the new sprinkles, and added the Santa from the Christmas Gnomes stamp set and Merry Christmas with Shadow.


The second card below was shared on the blog earlier this week, showcasing the Thanksgiving Gnomes stamp set and Zig-zag Nesting Slimline dies.







A crafty card by Lisa, showcasing the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline die, Distressed Edge Nesting Slimline dies and the Crafter’s Gonna Craft stamp set.  Perfect card for a crafty friend!





My first card was created by die-cutting the Cross-Stitched Slimline panel on white card stock.   I used the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set and stamped the image a few times in rainbow order.  Finishing the design by adding the “you” from the Thank You with Shadow die and Sparkling Clear Droplets sampler pack for added texture.



I used the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline die as well as the Zig-zag rectangle dies to adorn the background for my Thanksgiving Gnomes.   The berries came from the Happy Fall Y’all stamp set.  I wanted to use a funny sentiment (available at the shop) from Riley & Co. called Vegetarian Cling Stamp that I thought went perfectly with this scene.  It makes me laugh!





Martha shared her blog post yesterday on how she created this card, using the Zig-zag Nesting Slimline die and the Owl Envelope Art stamp set.








Meghan is spoiling us today with 3 AMAZING CARDS, showcasing the Cross-Stitched Nesting Slimline dies, sprinkles, Cityscape Slimline die, and Thanksgiving Gnomes stamp set.  She will be sharing a blog post on how she created these cards.  I can’t even pick a favorite!





Love both cards by Priscilla.  The first one uses the Zig-zag nesting slimline dies and the Crafter’s Gonna Craft stamp set.

The second card was created using the Thanksgiving Gnomes stamp set, Cross-Stitched Nesting Slimline dies along with the Crafter’s Essential Fall die-set.






A “sweet” and simple card by Tina showcasing the Zig-zag Nesting Slimline die and the Sweet Word sentiment die.  I love the simplicity of this card but creates a huge impact.






Sandra is joining us today with a process video (below) on how she created this card.  It’s so gorgeous!









A cute summer-themed card by Waleska featuring the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline die set with the new sprinkles available at the shop.

    I think all of these cards are fab especially the gnomes with the Thanksgiving theme! My most inspired card is Maria’s card with the two gnomes and the sentiment that reads ” vegetarian is an old Indian word for bad hunter! ” That is the best! Truly enjoyed seeing all the fun details and ways the design team showcased this release!!!! Crafty hugs!!!
