Have you ever really wanted to play with something but didn’t know what to do? That’s how I was with these three products – Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper, Special Moments stamp set, and Layering Diorama dies. I couldn’t just use one of these but maybe if I put them together, I could create something.
I started by using the middle two of the Layering Diorama Dies to cut out the center from a card front from the Simply Marbleous DSP and a coordinating piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment from Special Moments in Coastal Cabana on a card base of Basic White Thick Cardstock in Coastal Cabana. I used the Blending Brush and Coastal Cabana ink to add some color around the sentiment and fill in the white space. Once I adhered the pieces, I added a few white Classic Matte Dots on the Coastal Cabana layer. Considering it is a Sympathy card, I wanted to keep it muted.
I had the pieces leftover when I cut the Simply Marbleous DSP and Cardstock with the Layering Diorama Dies so I decided to make another card! I started with a card base of Coastal Cabana and stamped the sentiments with Coastal Cabana ink. I then cut out a piece of Basic White using the smallest Layering Diorama Die and stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana. I popped up the sentiment with dimensionals and adhered the other pieces to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. I thought it needed a little something else so I added a few black Classic Matte Dots scattered around the card front.
I could have stopped with those two cards but, well, I just had to make one more. For this card I still used the Simply Marbleous DSP and Special Moments stamp set but decided to change up the color. I also wanted to bring in the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes. I decided on a piece of DSP with Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo and cut it into 3″x3″ pieces. I mounted the DSP on a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Blushing Bride. I stamped the butterfly on Basic White with Flirty Flamingo ink and fussy cut the image. I then mounted that on the DSP and then mounted it on a Basic White 4″ x 5 1/4″ card front. Next I stamped the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo ink. I then tied a single knot in a piece of Black & White Gingham Ribbon and wrapped it around the card front above the sentiment. Finally I mounted the card front on a Flirty Flamingo card base.
