Coordinating Stamping & Die-cuttings Greeting Cards
Happy Tuesday crafty friends! I just can’t believe that we are looking at week three for the WOW! Facebook Fan Page Group “Favorite Stamp” challenge! So, on today’s blog I’d like to share with you how I’ve made these cards featuring once again the Tropical Stamp Set, and a die that coordinate perfectly with the floral pattern from the stamp. Don’t you love when you can coordinate stamps, and dies from different companies? Well, don’t forget that each challenge winner will receive a $15.00 gift card to the WOW!

Without further ado keep on reading the post. ↓
To begin with, I started by stamping in a white card panel the Tropical Stamp Set with clear embossing ink. Next, I covered the stamping with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder, and I heat set it. Once the heat embossing was done, I trimmed the edges of the card panel W 3 5/8’’ X 5.0’’ and I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 size white top folding card base with foam mounting tape to add dimension, and I set it aside. In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine white card stock along with the Altenew Frilly Frame Die 2X. Right after, I carefully removed all of the tiny little pieces from the die-cutting and I adhered both die-cuttings in the center of the card panel with liquid glue as you can see I shifted them a bit creating dimension in between both die-cuttings. Then, I ran through the die-cutting machine white card stock along with the Altenew Fancy Hello Die to die-cut the hello 3X as I wanted a sturdy die-cutting as I was planning to heat embossing it with the same Gold Pearl Embossing Powder that I previously used for the background. Right afterwards when the die-cutting, and heat embossing was done, I adhered the backing of the die-cutting on the center of the large die-cutting. Lastly, to finish the card off, I adhered with foam mounting tape a sentiment that I’ve previously stamped and heat embossed from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set.
For the next example, I kept the same idea as usual. However, I used Kraft card stock, and Clear Gloss Embossing Powder instead of white card stock and Gold Pearl embossing powder. Also, I changed the sub-sentiment as you can see in the picture above. But, the rest of the measurements and the card design in general remained the same.
Well that’s all for today friends, I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the challenge a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts. Down below you’ll find the supply list for the products used on this blog post.
