Yesterday I shared my cards I created using just the Floral Squares dies from the All Squared Away bundle. If you missed them, see them here. Today’s cards use the All Squared Away stamp set and dies and have the greetings stamped on them.
I’m branching out with my color choices of the bold Gorgeous Grape on this card. I’m not always successful in getting my stamped images lined up perfectly (are you?). So I stamped each square on a separate piece of Basic White cardstock, then cut them out. The squares are adhered directly to the card, and it’s hard to tell they weren’t stamped directly onto the card. I added some bling with a Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones.
Keeping with the Gorgeous Grape colors, I cut this piece of Gorgeous Grape Hand-Penned DSP with a Gorgeous Grape frame underneath. The two Floral Squares were die-cut in Basic White. I used the dies to cut out the additional So Saffron and Just Jade pieces. The Gorgeous Grape greeting is stamped directly on the DSP. I must confess I stamped on a sample DSP piece to make sure it would show up before stamping it directly on my card. I wanted to avoid having to start all over on my card!
My last card is CASEd from a card that Brian King received from Stampin’ Up! I love the Expressions in Ink DSP and hadn’t used this design yet. I die-cut the flower from the Gold Metallic specialty paper for the bling on this card.
You’ll notice that I’ve offset many pieces on my cards today and yesterday. I like the way it draws your attention to the details on my cards. Try it some time, you’ll be surprised how it makes your card layout standout!
Thanks for stopping by today. Hugs to all of you, and happy stamping!
