STAMPlorations summer release - word dies


Welcome to the last day of the STAMPlorations Summer Release. Today it's all about four new word dies from Shery Russ.


First I paired them up with a stencil...

Distress Ink
craft foam

After I'd taped down the stencil, leaving a slight masked frame around the edges, I used a Sharpie to trace a few of the leaves. Then I used sponge daubers to apply Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed and Cracked Pistachio inks.

I die cut "you" from the card front and craft foam. Adhered the white word die cuts. Then adhered the "camouflaged" you.


For my next card, I die cut "bravo" from post it tape and dabbed the same DI colors around it. First the yellow, then orange, then red... If you're thinking the Cracked Pistacio is a bit "off", you're right. Although I tried to wipe off the DI from the mask each time, after I'd done the red, a bit of it transferred to the green area. Note to self: Next time cut two masks, one for warm, one for cool tones ;)

white embossing powder


Using colored pencils, I added a bit more color to the kitty so he'd pop off the BG a bit.

Did you see how I used the Bravo die stacked to hang my vines on this card?


Shery's offering prizes as always. Leave comments by July 23 on all the release posts this week on the STAMP blog and the DT blogs to be in the running - there's a $25 GC and also your choice of a stamp set and word die from this release up for grabs!  Check out what my teamies created over at the STAMPlorations blog.

Awesome cards with the word dies. I like how you used the one as a stencil and made multiples of the design in different colors. That really looks cheery!

Hadn't thought about outlining
pieces in a stencil. Works
