Beautiful Botanical Creations with the Gorgeous Garden Dies!

Hi Crafty Friends! It's Kylie here! I'm absolutely thrilled to share some simple projects featuring the stunning Gorgeous Garden Dies. These dies are gorgeous and its so simple to create a striking background!

Project 1: Lush Leaves Greeting Card

For our first project, let's dive into the lush world of leaves! 

I've used the Leaves Die from the Gorgeous Garden set to create a vibrant and refreshing greeting card. The Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, reminiscent of our gorgeous Aussie flora, was the perfect choice for these intricate leaf shapes. 

After die-cutting, I carefully adhered them onto a backdrop of Pretty Peacock cardstock, creating a beautiful contrast that truly makes those leaves pop!

The sentiment is from the Wonderful Thoughts stamp set and cut out with a coordinating die from the Wonderful Thoughts dies. I then adhered to a piece of cardstock from the Nested Essentials Dies (these are a MUST HAVE). 

Project 2: Floral Card

Our second project blooms with elegance and charm. 

I've taken the Flowers Die from the Gorgeous Garden set and crafted a captivating card. Im all about simple. Starting with crisp white cardstock, I die-cut the intricate floral design. To bring these blooms to life, I used Moody Mauve Stampin' Blends. I then adhered to a piece of paper from the Masterfully Made DSP collection and then onto a coordinating Pretty Peacock card base.

The sentiment is from a stamp set called Kindest Expressions. I stamped it using Versamark and then White Embossed using a heat tool. I then cut out and adhered to the card base. 

Tips from Me:
  • Precision in Cutting: When using intricate dies like these, a reliable die-cutting machine is your best friend. Take your time, and don't rush the process for clean and precise cuts every time.
  • Blending Brilliance: When colouring die-cut elements, like our stunning flowers, take a gradual approach with alcohol markers like Stampin' Blends. Start with light layers and build up the color slowly for a seamless, professional finish.
  • Colour Coordination: One of the joys of Stampin' Up is our beautiful color coordination! The Pretty Peacock cardstock and Designer Series Paper create a harmonious backdrop for our Gorgeous Garden creations.
