My Favorite Things–August Release Countdown Day 1!

Hello again!


We are soooo close to the August Release!!  Today’s project features the Birds of a Feather Die-Namics and the From All of Us Stamp Set


I used a technique that I love when I’ve got a set of tiny dies.  I blended several different distress inks onto some Distress Watercolor Paper and heavily spritzed them with water.  Once they dried, I used the dies from the Birds of a Feather Die-Namics to die cut most of the images from each panel.  I then arranged them close together, making sure that the two birds were facing each other and had a heart between them.  I then placed a piece of Press N’ Seal plastic wrap over the top of the die cuts to hold them in place, and used the largest of the Stitched Heart STAX Die-Namics to cut them into a shape.  I dry embossed the same die into a Smooth White panel, and stamped the sentiment from the From All of Us Stamp Set using some Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I placed small bits of foam tape on the back of each of the die cuts, and adhered them to the image panel, using the embossed heart as a placement guide.  Then I carefully peeled away the Press N’ Seal plastic wrap to reveal the heart-shaped pattern.  The image panel was adhered to the an Orange Zest card base with foam squares, and embellished with Sparkling Clear Sequins.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.
