Hi everyone, I've been playing with a new card sized die that arrived not long ago. It's called Bloomtangled coverplate #1 by Stamplorations. I've been having lots of fun with it!
For this card I thought I'd diecut part of the panel and back it with a scrap of card I'd smooshed gelatos onto. It has a shimmer that's hard to see in the pic.
The base card has a hammered impression on it which gives a subtle texture. It's getting harder to find this cardstock in Australia, which is a shame as I really like it.
The sentiment is 2 stamps from an old Darkroom Door set called Simply Circles. The circle is what picks up the ink so the sentiment is whatever colour card you stamp on. I embossed the circles with clear ep, then fussy cut the words out. The date on the stamp tin is 2011, so since it's over 1 year old, I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.
Stamplorations have a massive 5th birthday celebration happening, and there are lots of ways to win prizes. One is to CASE one of the DT cards. I've chosen Jessica's card here. She partially coloured the card using this die, so I thought I'd just use part of the die.
I'm also linking up to the challenge at Less is More where the theme is friendship.
At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is to frame it.
I've framed the diecut with a white mat and then a black mat to tie in with the stamped sentiment.
I needed to use a metal plate with this die in my cuttlebug and cranked it slowly as it's so big.
The layered mats were from my snippets box, so I'm also visiting the playground at
Stamplorations Bloomtangled coverplate #1 die: gelatos; Darkroom Door Simply Circles stamp; versafine ink & clear ep.
Thanks for visiting,
