If you caught my post Friday, I used the Basic Border dies to make some groovy Summer cards. Here is another idea using the Basic Border dies, this time with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp. I know, I used the cloud die AGAIN. That's how much I love it! Don't worry, I have plans to do another post in a few weeks using other dies in the set. Ok, on y go! Let's get stamping.
This fun birthday card and all-purpose card are bright and colorful. They use a dynamic color combination of Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, and Magenta Madness. The bright colors paired with the bold patterns of The Right Triangle stamp set make these cards pop! This fabulous triangle stamp set that coordinates perfectly with the Stitched Triangle dies. While the dies will still be available, the Right Triangle stamp set will be discontinued at the end of April Many of the retiring items, particularly dies, paper, and punches are on sale. You can shop the Last Chance sale by clicking here. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Simply Bright Hello Card Idea
I stamped some of the triangles from The Right Triangle stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on Pool Party cardstock, Granny Apple Green ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and Magenta Madness ink on Petal Pink cardstock. I cut out the triangles with the Stitched Triangles dies and layered them on a Magenta Madness card front. While the design is abstract, it reminds me of mountains and a lake with a starry sky stamped with Magenta Madness ink in the background.
I cut the Magenta Madness card front with the Stitched Rectangle dies, mounted it on Granny Apple Green cardstock, and layered it on a Pretty Peacock card base. I stamped "HELLO" from the Forever Fern stamp set on Basic White and cut it with another Stitched Rectangle die. I mounted it over a piece of the Forever Greenery Trim to finish off the card.

I used the Well Written dies from the Annual Catalog to cut the "welcome" greeting from Basic Black cardstock. I lined this up with the bottom left edge of the gray bar to balance the stars that are grouped on the right side of the card. Finally, I tied a simple bow using White Baker's Twine and mounted my image on Basic Black cardstock and then on a Coastal Cabana card base.
When I finished, I realized I hadn't used a single rubber stamp! Dies are wonderful for creating dramatic cards quickly and easily. I think I'll make another rubber stamp-free card for Wednesday - maybe I can keep the trend up all week!
I'd love to see cards you made without using rubber stamps or cards inspired by this color challenge. Leave your comments below.
