A Die-Cutting Bonanza

Hi! I hope you're having a great weekend, and if you're in the U.S., a great Fourth of July. We went over to a friend's house in the country for a cook out, go-kart rides, and fireworks. It was great, well, until my little guy burned his hand when he grabbed the tailpipe of the go-kart. Ouch! He's okay now.

I'm on the Scraptastic Club blog today sharing a couple of cards using the gorgeous Either Way Kit and Add-On. These kits have great embellishments, and I wanted to combine them with die-cuts.

Layered Embellishments

First, I die-cut several of the papers from the kits. I tried to keep it to just a few colors--coral, aqua, pink, and gold. I used Paper Smooches' HeartsCardbookingStars, and Pinked Circles, and MFT's Circle STAX.

Next, I went to work layering the different shapes and several of the embellishments from the kits. I decided to go with a simple grid for the card:

Layered Hello


Here's a close-up:

For the sentiment, I used the Either Way Stamp Set. I flipped over one of the circle stamps and stamped with the backside in a pink. I stamped over that with the "hello" sentiment:

I had quite a few leftover shapes, so I made another card using the same die-cuts, but other kit embellishments:


Best Days


I used the Either Way Cut Aparts for the sentiment. Here's a close-up:
