Artistic Dies

Hello my friends,

Here’s another card using the beautiful Artistic Dies (#155371). I had cut the image from the Silver Foil 12”x12” Specialty Paper (#156457) for another card but I wasn’t happy with the colour combination so used another colour for that card, so had to make another card with the Silver. Much happier with this one. The finished size of the card is 14cm x 14cm.

The base card is Smokey Slate (#131291), followed by Merry Merlot card (#147005) then Smokey Slate from the Neutrals 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#155226). I wrapped the Metallic Mesh Ribbon (#153550) around the card front.

The Silver Foil Specialty Paper had Adhesive Sheet (#152334) adhered to the back before cutting with the Artistic die. This was attached to the card with ease.

“Happy Anniversary” from the Always In My Heart stamp set (#158183) was stamped with Merry Merlot ink (#147112) using the Stamparatus (#148187). I then re stamped it with VersaMark (#102283) and sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155554) and set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was then cut with a die from the Floral Hearts Dies (#154306). This banner was then attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Just a note regarding the sentiment. With narrow and longer photopolymer stamps, you can easily make them curve which is what I have done with this stamp, so that it suited the curve on the banner. Just curve it as you are applying it to the clear acrylic block.

The Silver Foil is from the Mini Catalogue which you can order from on 3rd August. This pack has 3 different finishes - Brushed, Matte and Mirror Foil finish. I used the Matte finish on this card.

“Love what you do and share what you love.”

Stay safe & keep crafting!!
