Pattern making with Organic Beauty Dies - great ideas for male cards.

  I had a great week making some very different cards - they all featured the lattice/trellis design from the Organic Beauty dies from Stampin' Up!  This was the first time I had used this die and I am SO pleased with the results.

So much so, that I featured the dies all week and they became my die-set of the week. You will have seen the one I created on Monday, but I am delighted to share the remainder with you.

For the ombre card above, I used 9 colours of blue from the Stampin' Up! range: starting with the lightest and working from the top to the bottom:

Pool Party, Balmy Blue,  Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Orchid Oasis, Pacific Point, Starry Sky and finally Night of Navy.

I finished this card off with the Basic White die cut SENDING from Sending Smiles and the matching stamp 'A card to say hello' stamped in Starry Sky ink onto White card. This ombre idea was from one of our team members, Scott Hawkins - thanks Scott!

I wanted our next card to be feminine, so I changed out the colour to Blushing Bride, and used some of the Awash in Beauty papers with the trellis die, picking out 4 for the cluster of diamonds, which I added using the die as a guide to line them up.  The card looked slightly bare, so we added the dots from Forever Fern to fill it in - thanks to Katherine for her suggestion.

Our final card (shown above) was made using the die as a stencil, and adding background ink wth a Blending Brush. This card was made using Petal Pink and Calypso Coral colours for the rose.
