August 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to our August 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Sveta Fotinia‘s blog, you are right on track. You can also start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

For today's release, I created two projects; one which you can see below and another on my personal blog.

For this project, I wanted to keep it very simple. I had sketched out a design with diagonal lines and lozenge shapes. I used the Geo Frames Stamp and Die Set.


How to:

  1. Stamp a couple of diamond shapes with an ink color of your choice. I opted to go with black. Cut them out with the coordinating die.
  2. Using the new Mega Number 4, die cut the number. This will be part of the title. I also cut the word WELCOME using the new Script Words 3 Die Set. This die set is perfect for scrapbooking and creating titles but is also a great addition to any card marker's collection.
  3. On a white piece of 8.5″ by 11″ cardstock, place your choice of washi tape diagonally. I used Dotted Washi Tape, Watercolor Strokes Washi Tape, and added some Gold Glitter Tape for a pop of sparkle and detail.
  4. Create the layout. The photo is placed partially over the washi tape and, to make the 4 stand out, I popped it onto one of the cut-out diamond shapes.
  5. Embellish your layout.
