Turns out creating with pre-printed die cuts is super fun and I found myself in the zone creating a number of cards. Will keep the chitter chatter to a minimum as I have five cards to show today.
And there they all are. There would have been another one but I haven’t quite finished it and now as I sit here looking at it, I have decided to change it. 🙂 I think it’s worth noting that all of these cards are primarily made with one pack of the Collectables – Hello Sunshine and one 6-1/2″ Paper Pad – Hello Sunshine. I still have a lot of the die cuts leftover and a bit of the patterned paper too (although I’ve used up most of the full sheets of my favourite designs/colours in the pad, I do still have lots of little off cuts which can be used for borders, etc).
It was a fun and productive creative session! I hope you all experience the same the next time you sit down to play.
Love, love, LOVE these! They feel like a complete set and they would make such a perfect gift for someone. I am totally going to steal this diecut idea of yours and make a set of cards for a friend. I’ve actually got a huge amount of diecuts – all collected before I got a BigShot for Christmas. And I’ve been on the lookout for some inspiration in how to use them up. This is it! This is perfect.
Big *hugs* to you for being such a rocking inspiration. 🙂
Thank you, Elle, for such kind words and please accept my apologies for being so late in acknowledging them. Aren’t Big Shots great! I just got one for my birthday. I’ve been using a cuttlebug but it just opens up a few more options. I must come see what you’ve been up to – I bet you’ve been rocking your cards as per usual!! hugs!!
Kylie – these take adorable to an entirely new level! I’m glad “pick a favourite” isn’t a requirement, because that’s impossible:; they’re all far toooo sweet (although the lion with its jazzy mane is rather eye-catching, as is the flower-toting alligator, and the smiley whale…). Gosh – they’re just allll stinkin’ cute! Now, they’re only amazing because of what you’ve done with them – pairing them with the perfect accessories – paper combinations, sentiments (especially the layered hello)- and eye-catching layouts. Your eye for design, my friend, is remarkable! LOVE these x a zillion!! Hug~c
C, I am soooo sorry I haven’t acknowledged this before today and that I haven’t been over to check in on you for ages!! Thank you for your sweet words as always. You know how to make a person feel good! hugs!!
