    A Happy Hello Featuring Crafter’s Essentials 2

    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:
