December 2016 Release Week: Feathers & Florals and Bold Banner Greetings with Kara

Hello! Welcome back to Day 2 of the December release. If you are just joining us, be sure to check out Day 1 here.

Kara here with you today sharing two beautiful new sets and coordinating dies that will be released on the 5th. These beautiful florals gave me the opportunity to use the newest additions to the PURE Color Dye Ink collection too!

AVAILABLE December 5, 2016

Feathers & Florals
4x6" Clear Stamp Set
$15 USD

Feathers & Florals Companion Die
Steel Rule Die
$21 USD

Bold Banner Greetings
4x6" Clear Stamp Set
$15 USD

Bold Banner Companion Die
Steel Rule Die
$7 USD

First, let's just focus on these big beautiful blooms!

I die cut them using the coordinating die set and stamped them with PURE COLOR dye inks in Sea Breeze layered with Siren Song, Shell Pink layered with Little Piggy, and Mojito layered with Appletini. All of these duos are perfect compliments to each other!

Once all of my flowers and leaves were stamped I die cut the amazing Bold Banner and stamped a sentiment from Bold Banner Greetings. I mounted the sentiment on my acrylic block with a slight curve that mimics the curve of the banner. This banner is such a great size - large enough to span the width of your card and make a statement!

Assembly is fun and easy! I recommend positioning everything without adhesive first and then taking a photo like I mentioned in my last post.

I started by adding the banner to the white panel with a bit of dimensional adhesive, only in the center initially. This way all of your flowers and leaves can be tucked into place without the adhesive preventing things from going behind the banner. Once everything is adhered you can go back and place more dimensional adhesive under the banner wherever necessary.

I did some off-center layering of panels with some colored cardstock and vellum to add whimsy and interest.
Thank you so much for stopping by again today. I hope you are enjoying the peeks of all of the upcoming release products. Yana will be here tomorrow with another amazing project and a look at a new set, so be sure to come back!
