Hyper embellish with your favorite dies


I've been "Hyper" embellishing some of  my designer die designs I've created for the Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Store today!  This a a term I use when I desire to make an over the top design.  This Fluttered Tulip Bodice die adds texture, design and that ever popular feminine touch to any project all on its own, but it takes on an entirely new effect if you just add a few extra touches! 


Literally one of my favorites when I combine it with the large Darling Square Die Set frame!  The outcome is always so elegant, delicate and pleasing!  Above you can see the base folded in half, below the card opened.

Today's stamped image is the hug-able little GWEN image from the Dollhouse collection.  Her hair is a dream to color, but that bow and those cheeks are my favorite parts!  This is the perfect sort of image to handle all my thick rich love of pigment!  These images are full of character and design, you could use them shabby chic, jazzy or bright and bold!  Isn't she a dream?


With a simple bi-fold card design, the image is seated prominently in the center of the card, there is a bit of texture added with the Dewdrop border die.  Then after twinkling the edges of the fluttered tulip bodice and layering two copies together, I've added a HYPER embellishment to the bodice that brings the design paper colors right back into play and offsets the project too!  I'll show you how!


You can learn how to "Hyper" embellish your die cuts and make a full velumptious flower like this one with the extra pieces in the Darling Square Die Set too, here with a tutorial at the
Little Darlings Rubber Stamps You Tube Tutorial channel.

Enchanted Wishes Sentiment
