Poetic Party with Birgit

May 29, 2017

It’s time for a poetic party and you’re invited! This week join Birgit Edblom as she explores the range of possibilities available with our newest collection, Poetic.

Our Creative Die set, 51-356 Summer Goodies, is great for a multitude of styles and projects. Today Birgit has given it an elegant look by combining it with our Creative Die, 51-326 Graceful Greenery.

Tips/Techniques: Onto textured cardstock (Birgit recommends Paper Accent, Bazzill Linen Textured Cardstock, or Scrapberrys Canvas Cardstock), apply Stormy Sky Distress Ink using an ink blending tool and a foam pad. Layer inked background behind a square frame cut using a simple square die. Paint Creative Dies using Daler Rowney watercolors. Once dry, adhere to background and stamp sentiment.

For her next card, Birgit used just the apple from the Creative Die set, 51-356 Summer Goodies. This clean and simple design is fabulous for teacher appreciation cards.

Tips/Techniques: For a design variation, instead of an inked background on textured cardstock, use Daler Rowney watercolors to paint the background onto watercolor paper (Saunders Waterford High White HP). Lightly stamp text before adhering die cut apple and stamping sentiment.

And before we go… how about a fun announcement?
