Stampin' Up!'s It Starts With Art Bundle: Border Dies

Here's a card I made over the weekend as I was playing again with the Follow Your Art Suite of products.

It Starts with Art Bundle from Stampin' Up!, card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

I started off by playing with the Arts & Crafts Dies:  

  • I cut each of the dies out first to see what they really look like.
  • There are three border trim dies.  Two of which cut out completely.
  • However, the "ribbon" border die I found does not cut out completely.  It only cuts the edge.  I actually like that feature as it makes it easier to adhere.

How'd She DO That?:

  • The focal point of this card was created using pieces from the the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit
  • It includes tons of fun embellishments (including the adorable heart shaped charms) for your handcrafted projects.   
  • Store them all in the designer box (included), which will also fits your completed cards!
  • TIP:  Thread twine through charm and paper clip, and clip onto felt heart.  Then tie twine in a bow. 
  • Sentiment banner was also slipped into the paper clip.  Then use dimensionals to adhere to card.  A Mini Stampin' Dimensional fits perfectly on the charm  - as shown below.

  • 4 sheets of stitched, die-cut felt accents (1 sheet each of 4 colors: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry)
  • 12 paper clips (6 Blushing Bride, 6 Coastal Cabana)
  • 3 yards Pacific Point Linen Thread

  • 6" x 4-3/4" x 1-1/16" designer box

When I was done playing with this card, I gathered up all the extra die cuts I hadn't used yet, and put them in the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit box.  It's a great way to not only clean-up, but to keep things organized and all in one place!

I made a couple more cards with the Follow Your Art Suite , which I'll share at another time.  In the meantime, you can get the entire suite by using the Follow Your Art Suite Bundle item #152181Add it to your shopping bag today!
