CTC #211 Lovely new romantic papers

welcome back to CASEing the Catty for round #211.
Well this is the first set of nested heart dies I've ever owned and I really scored the jackpot with these.
Not only are there 4 nested dies in a traditional heart shape, including a scallop border, but there are nested dies in a non traditional shape (I call it a country heart.) There is also a gorgeous detailed border heart and several detailed element pieces. I haven't had much time to play but I have had enough to know that there will be countless possibilities with this set.

My first card is loosely inspired by the little notecard on the bottom right of page 6. The framelits cut out the solid heart and the scalloped border at the same time. The framelits also cut out the printed hearts on one of the sheets of DSP. So I put a solid heart inside a white scalloped border. I added some champagne shimmer paint to the sold heart and raised it up a little. I had fun fussy cutting the gorgeous flowers from one of the beautiful sheets of DSP and created a little bouquet on the front. There are so many different sentiments in the new sets and since I was fortunate enough to win most of them at Onstage with my Golden Ticket I have had fun mixing and matching.




Here's the inside of the card. Another gorgeous stamp in the set, minimal colouring needed for a lovely impact.


Once I started playing I did get on a bit of a roll !!! and so I want to share a second card using the solid hearts and a technique called partial die cutting where I created a window in the front face of the card. The Lovely Lipstick card uses the same elements- a scallop border, a solid heart within the scallop and some fussy cut individual flowers for a bouquet.  It also allows me to show off how beautiful that sheet of DSP is.



I did highlight some of the blooms using the fine tip glue pen but it's not very obvious in the photos.

  2. You seem to be having a ball with your new heart dies Liz. I like the way you've included TIEF on both your cards, it always adds a little more.
