Bountiful Blooms

I love this stand alone die set from WPLUS9.  I admit I got it for the banner and the Hello sentiment and the botanicals were kinda a bonus. 

I tried playing with these dies in two ways, with some SSS Felt, and with cardstock and markers.  The felt cut so easily with the dies, but it was a little hard for me to place on the card fronts.  I finally manged to use some post it's to get the positioning turned over for gluing with glossy accents.  I made three cards in the same color families as the felt colors.



I think the dies might be a bit small for the felt, the felt was a bit fragile and only a few of the outline portions of the dies held up without tearing.

Next up, I used cardstock and copic markers.  In this the medium those dies really shined for me.  The white outlines and spring colors really stood out on the swiss dot embossed kraft card base.  I added a few sequins to finish it off.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. They're all lovely, Cat! I find felt is often easier to work with if you attach the felt die cut to a cardstock die cut & I have given up using felt with delicate dies like one of my wreaths as it always ends up tearing. 2 great layouts & the dotted kraft is a fabulous background!
