Introducing...Pure Florals: Gerbera Designer Dies

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I've been wanting to do this post ever since the dies went live on the website on Tuesday, but my time to create & blog just seemed to slip away from me this week. My husband took a couple of half days and a day off work for some much needed family time this week :) it was lovely to have him at home.

Anyway, I here today to share a closer look at the matching designer dies for the Pure Florals: Gerbera clear stamp set. Now I 'seem' to have a better schedule & routine with the beans I decided it was time to get back on track with getting matching dies for previously released stamps. 

Pure Florals: Gerbera is the all time TOP seller here at Uniko and along with that I have had numerous requests for them so HERE they are...

As you can see by the photo above they are different from our dies in the fact they are see through, this makes stamping and die cutting a breeze. 

Today I have a little step by step photo tutorial (I'm not quite set up for videos yet) for you, hopefully showing you how quick and easy it was to make this card...

As usual I decided to use a challenge to jump start my creativity, I was recently made aware of a new to me challenge called {Cupcake Inspirations} and decided to check it out. The current inspiration (ending soon) HERE and seen below was perfect. I have just treat myself to a few new VersaMagic colours!

I started out by stamping the outline gerbera in Pink Grapefruit, a lovely coral pink...

This next photo shows how easy it is to line the die with the stamped image...

And here it is die cut...

I repeated the same process for the leaves, this time I chose the small solid leaf & stamped it in Oasis Green ink...

Before stamping my sentiment and assembling the card, I always lay the pieces of my card out how I want them to make sure I am happy with it...

Including photos (which aren't the best) this card took me half an hour! So having a die really does 'cut' the making process down! And lastly I have a little close up of the finished card...

Ok, that's all I have time for today, as the beans are just waking up from their nap! I hope to find some creative time this evening once they are in bed to make a few more cards using these new dies :) 

Until the next time, thank you for stopping by today.
