I am obsessed with type and font! I've been planning some word dies for us for a while now and I thought....what can we do to make them awesome but just a little bit different? I am so excited to bring you our new word dies - with a twist!
Isn't this the cutest and yet somehow still a masculine way to put the attention on dad? I love this Dad Word Die. It's visually interesting, and trendy with the use of the symbol in the center! This die is the perfect size at 3 in. wide and 1.5 in. tall and super fun to play with especially when paired with the coordinating stamp set we've created for this die. More on that in a second!
Of course we had to do one for mom too! Don't you just love this? I am in love with this Mom Word Die and I love the heart in the center in place of an "o"! Another neat little twist!! What's even cooler is that the heart in the center can be used for other things! I love it when that happens!
Our new Word Dies are FANTASTIC on their own but check out this terrific stamp set that will really take these dies places!! We kept the font classic and neutral so that it would be perfect for both masculine and girly cards and the included border stamps really allows you to do so much with this set! What's great about this set is that is can be used for loads of other projects separate from the word dies. You've gotta love a set with versatility! I know I do!!!!!
So, seriously? This next die is one we should have done AGES ago!!! It's a new take on a familiar favorite! Adding the stitching to this die just adds such a fantastic detail! You are going to wonder where this has been all your life! I can't stop reaching for it!! AND it's the perfect size. It's exactly 5.5 in. long so that you can use it on an A2 card vertically without having to trim it down keeping all that great, stitchy detail!
Today we are going to showcase projects featuring our Mom and Dad Dies and coordinating stamp set. Here are a couple lil' things I made.
I just love the 80's vibe this card has! I started with a white A2 base which I spritzed with some Angel Mists. Once it dried I added some neon washi tapes (I FINALLY BOUGHT SOME WASHI, GO ME!) and I cut out two mom words and layered them; neon pink and black, giving it a shadowed effect. I thought the denim ribbon was the perfect accent!
Here is die cut mom from a cork sheet. OH this looks so amazing in real life! I used our new Stitched Scallop Border die here which I cut from patterned paper and just a simple strip of orange card stock. I added in my light blue jute twine and called 'er done! I'm so excited that I will be ahead of the game for Mother's Day cards!!! Yahoooooooooo!!!
Here are two cards I made using our new Dad Word Die and coordinating stamp set. On this first one, I cut DAD from aqua card stock and stamped the fringed line border stamp over it to give it texture and I added the sentiment in the polka dot strip.
On the card below, it's hard to tell but I used the negative here. I die cut DAD from white card stock which I had previously cut using our Stitched Mats: Rectangles. Then behind the negative space I adhered a strip of patterned paper. Over the negative space, I used foam dots to affix DAD to the focal panel. It left me with a terrific 3-D effect!!!
You are going to love love love having these new dies and stamps in your collection. They make easy and yet such attractive cards with little effort! I love when products make card making easier and faster too! I think that you will love that there is only one stamp set that coordinates so perfectly with each of these dies....a little easier on the wallet, right? In our store you may opt to purchase each of these three pieces individually so you're able to pick and choose the ones you love. But I think you'll find yourself wanting all three pieces when you see how affordably priced they are!!
