June 2018 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the June 2018 Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Vicky Papaioannou‘s blog, you are right on track.

I loved all the products in this release but I was especially drawn to the Leaf Canopy Stamp and Die Set.

@lilitheeckelsI created a layout and used leftover elements for a card. I started by stamping the leaf images using three green ink colors: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen. I cut them out using the coordinating die.

@lilitheeckelsFor more detail, I stamped the outline leaf image onto my white cardstock and then I started putting together the layout, layering the different leaf images. I created a cluster at the top and the bottom working my way towards the middle where I placed my image.

@lilitheeckelsFor my journaling, I used some stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection sticker sheet and cut off the borders as the colors didn't match the color combination I picked for the layout. For the title, I used the Tall Alpha Stamp Set and created a two-word title. For the word SECRET, I used two green colors and stamped the word MOMENT in Permanent Black Ink. I picked some embellishments as accents and to add some punch to the layout.

@lilitheeckelsAs I had some stamped images left over, I created a quick card using the same design features as the layout.

@lilitheeckelsYou can see how the layout came together in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

I created a second layout using the Party Banner Die and the Tall Alpha Stamp Set as well as the Mega Alphabet L Die.

@lilitheeckelsI wanted to create a very simple layout with the banner and some letters. I used the letter L and cut it out of the banner and matted it onto some patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

@lilitheeckels @lilitheeckelsI stamped an array of letters forming the word “love” randomly using a soft green, pink, and lavender and stamped it once in black. The die-cut love from the Script Words Die Set accentuates the word. It was cut out of the same patterned paper I used beneath the large L.

@lilitheeckelsFor some extra movement and detail, I added some ink splatters using some Altenew Ink Sprays.
