Among the many things released today, my favorites are two awesome dies for special fold cards, along with dies for the layers!!!! That is going to save bunches of time if you are a special folds person!!! For the card above, I used the Tri-Shutter Card die as well as the Tri-Shutter Layers Dies. I used the new Remembrance Stamp Set, and the new Stars and Stripes Paper Pack. I also used past released dies: Ovals, Stitched Ovals, Balloons and Streamers, Sparkling Stars, Celebrate and Wish Word Dies, the bow from Circle Ornaments, and to cut the various elements added to the card, I cut many of them with the same Tri-Shutter Layers. I decorated with various stars and balloons, some cut with the Stars and Stripes paper, and some cut from Silver Glitter paper.
I again used Tri-shutter Card and the Tri-Shutter Layers on the card below. I also used the new paper pack, Stars and Stripes. For my stamps, I used the new set called Remembrance, and for the USA image on the center panel, I used the USA single stamp. I used a few other dies from past releases: The Deco Border, Ornate Heart, Stitched Ovals, Pierced Rectangles, and Sparkling Stars. I simply chose papers from the new paper pack for my layers and cut using the layers dies; used the card die to cut the base from 12" white Bazzill paper, and cut mats and adornments from the paper pack and from silver glitter paper. I used a "faux" shaker technique, cutting the background with the Ornate Heart Die, then I added lots of little stars from the Sparkling Stars dies, and I cut another layer with the Ornate Heart Die, this time cutting from vellum. I topped it off with a third cutting of the lacy outer border of the die and adhered that over my vellum layer. I stamped the sentiment with Red pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I did the same on white card stock for my other sentiment, which was cut and then matted with a Double Stitched Oval. I used Memento inks to dual tone stamp the USA image, and cut that with a Pierced Rectangle. My card is decorated with little stars and parts of the Deco Border die cuts. It folds flat and is very mail-able.
To recap, here are the new released products I used today:
So that's it for me today. I hope you liked my samples and I hope you will love the fancy fold dies with their layers as much as I do!!!
