If you know me, you know I believe the smallest things can change someone’s day for the better.
Often I will extend compliments to strangers because I remember how a complete stranger changed my mindset with a simple compliment.
I also like to send hello cards. It’s not only a way to say I’m thinking of you but also a way to spread some cheer and support each other.
When I seen this Hello die at my local paper craft store I had to buy it. It’s hard to believe one die could make so many cards but here I am obsessed with it and practically make new cards every day using it.
The die I use is by Catherine Pooler.
This first card was made with a penny black background stamp a sizzix scallop die and the Catherine Pooler hello die. I used strawberry Nuvo jewel drops to add a little dimension.
This card was made with altenews layered pansies stamp set, Gina K’s foil mates polka dot set all pulled together by some gorgeous blue ribbon.
This card is my rendition of Jennifer McGuires rotated stencil technique. I used all that jazz blue ink then moved my stencil over it and added some white hero arts unicorn ink. I finished the card with some my favorite things dienamic sequin cut from glitter cardstock and added a touch of matching color with some recollections gems
This card was super easy. Using a sponge dauber I heavily coated the middle of the stencil and blended it out towards the edges to make it appear faded. I added some gold glitter cardstock by cutting some my favorite things sequins dies and adhering them. The Hello is also cut from the same cardstock. The project is finished off with some clear gems.
This card was a bit more vibrant. Using Distress Oxide Inks in yellow blue and pink I blended from one corner to the next, overlapping the colors to create the purple and the green. The Hello is diecut from some yellow cardstock and then colored with an orange Copic marker and added on top of vellum. I added orange Nuvo crystal drops to bring in some dimension.
This final Card was made a bit differently. Using the negative space from cutting out the Hello die, I applied it to some white cardstock and adhered it to the top of a piece Gina Ks foil mate polkadot set that I had made. I added clear embellishments and some gold zig zag lace to add some interest.
This is just a few of what one word die cut can make. I certainly am glad to have bought it. This die is probably my most used item.
