Project 248: Mix of die cut cards for mom and sis

I’m gearing up from a trip to see my sister and mom soon and I always like to take a collection of cards with me as a gift. 

This time I decided that instead of a matching set I’d make them each a few blank cards that they could use for their own occasions, featuring some of my new craft kit. I’ve loved using feature dies recently and thought this was a fun way to make up a collection of new cards.

The headline card and this one here are using a new Stampin’ Up die and stamp set that I haven’t played with much since Claire gave it to me.  Just been so busy this summer! I decided to use a few of the layers, stamping complimentary colors for the middle layer and then a standout color for the inside of the smallest one. I added die-cut leaves and glittered the spotted pattern for extra texture. The backing papers are all from Trader Jane Recollections stack and I love how exotic they feel. 

Really like these both. With a bit more practice they probably wouldn’t be so time consuming to cut and layer up either!

These next ones are just a bit of fun with my cake dies. I went for two layouts against black and white backgrounds. I added just a touch of bling, flowers and bows. That die is so stand out really don’t’ need much else to make a special card.

Finally I made a bunch of kit cards using stitched circle dies against craft card. These kites are from Claire and her mom and I love them. They are the easiest, most playful embellishment I’ve played with in a long time and I know my mom and sister will love them as well.

I made some robot cards as well – see this post as they are exactly the same -  so there are a bunch of different things to choose from. I can’t wait to see them and I’m sure they’ll like these new dies as they have received so many of my old ones over the years!
